Founded in 1514 and declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988 the town has been painstakingly preserved and offers a unique vista into life as it would have been in the 1500s. You can immerse yourself in the rich Spanish colonial architecture as you walk along cobblestone streets, and be enchanted by the many colonial palaces and plazas as well as see the remnants of the sugar mills and slave barracks.
If you are eager to learn more about this beautiful town then there are many museums such as the Museo de Arquitectura, renowned for its architecture, Museo Romantico where you can learn more about the life of the wealthy landowners and Museo Historico Municipal which also allows you to get a picture perfect view of the town and surrounds. There are many places to stop and eat or just enjoy a cool drink and be serenaded by a live band before heading out again to explore this truly beautiful town. The seafood in Trinidad is mouth-watering and you cannot get any fresher that lobster caught just hours before.
If you're a beach lover then there is no better place to relax and enjoy the warm inviting waters of the Atlantic Ocean than at Playa Ancon all of which is within easy reach of your beautiful homestay accommodation. If on the other hand you are keen to explore more, then there are many options available including a hike through the beautiful Sierra del Escambray.
At night, the town comes alive, whether it's dancing Son with the locals at La Casa de La Trova or Reggaeton in the caves, the options are all there. If after you have danced the night away and worked up an appetite you can always stop off for piece of pizza before getting some well-earned rest before a new day begins!
Trinidad is perfectly placed between the mountains and the sea and why it is a destination of choice for many travellers.
