The city's colonial centre is a UNESCO Heritage Site and you are unlikely to leave without taking an inordinate quantity of shots of this photogenic place. The cobblestone streets are busy, the houses are multi-coloured and the local people are fun, friendly and happy to exchange a word or two as you pass. Trinidad comes alive at night with music being played in many bars and restaurants, and there is always something going on at Plaza Mayor.

Exploring Trinidad on foot is the best way to get around this small town and to soak up its atmosphere. An indication of the welcoming atmosphere here, Trinidad is one of the best places in Cuba to stay in a private house (casa particular) as the town's residents provide an 'under the radar' B&B experience.

If you are after stretching your legs further, head inland to the wooded Escambray Mountains, a beautiful area of rivers and waterfalls, ideal for hiking. Beach lovers are well catered for too, with white-sand stretches such as Playa Ancon a short distance outside the town. East of Trinidad is the picturesque "Valle de Los Ingenios" (sugar mills), manor houses, slave watchtowers, slave quarters, and warehouses where Trinidad amassed its wealth in the 19th century. This is quite a popular spot but it is worth the visit.
