Back to the Past
Trinidad is located in the central region of the Country. It was the 3rd established Villa in Cuba by the Spanish at the beginning of 1514. It is one of the best preserved colonial city in Cuba and this is why is named World Heritage Site by Unesco. The level of preservation of its palaces, its colonial squares and its sugarmill, offer you a look back to the past. Most of the spectacular buildings are located sorrounding the “Plaza Mayor” (Main Square).
The excellent geographical location of the city allows visitors to enjoy many natural attractions ideal for lovers of history. Anyone who likes the sun and the beach, finds just 10 minutes drive from the city center, beautiful beaches to enjoy a relaxing day lying on the white sand. Those who prefer to enjoy nature could enjoy the nature reserve: Natural Park “Topes de Collantes” full of natural wonders.

Day 1. Arrival to Trinidad
Trinidad is located in the center of the Country at approximately 315km from the capital of the island. A journey from Havana to Trinidad will take you about 3 and half hours. If you have rented a car and you are coming from Havana you most get the National motorway (autopista nacional) heading the east of the country. Normally there is low traffic on this road so you will make a quite trip enjoying the sights you will find during the ride. When you book with us we will send you a confirmation with a road map with a route description.
If you do not have a rented car, you can use the public transport “Viazul” to get to Trinidad. They are very confortable buses and affordable prices. The bus ticket can be purchased in advance in the following page: http://www.viazul.com where you will also find a complete time time table with arrivals and departures times. You can pay in euro and USD dollar.
But if you prefer that we organize the trip to Trinidad for you and make the trip easier, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can organize a trip in an American oldtimer from the year 50s.
At your arrival to the casa particular yo will receive a welcome's cocktail.
Day 2. Touring the Valley of the Sugar Mills (Valle de los Ingenios)
After your breakfast will be waiting a local guide for you to take you to the “Valley of the Sugar Mills” (Valle de los Ingenios), place where it was the highest production of sugar of the country 500 years ago and where the largest number of sugar mills (trapiches) were concentrated during the colonial times. This valley is today a World Heritage. The tour will be riding a horse and takes about 3 to 4 hours.
You leave the 2 guns in the Trinitarian Canyon, going through the batey “La Pastora”, then to the “Valley of Mills”, visit the “House of Abanico”, a house with more than 300 years, the “Batey de Guárico” until you arrive to the waterfall “Jabira”, where you can take a swim in a cold natural pool if you wish.
Also visit the viewpoint of the “Valley of Mills”, where you have a panoramic view of the valley and where there is a “Ranchón” (restaurant) where you can optionally have lunch.
Free afternoon for you to go through the city center “Plaza Mayor” (Main square), walk through its quaint cobbled streets and know the story that holds their impressive buildings. Do not forget to visit the Bar “La Canchánchara” and taste the typical Trinitarian drink, made with brandy, honey and lemon while listening to Latin music. An experience that you should not miss.
