Trinidad is a visual treat to anyone visiting Cuba. The town itself is a UNESCO World Heritage site, with its colonial charm seen at every corner of this tiny town.

The best part of Trinidad is wandering the streets and uncovering gems. The main tourist area is small but the city spreads into various little districts and offers a better look at the architecture and local life in Trinidad.

I walked to the main square where internet wifi is available to send messages to family and friends! This is a great place to see locals go by their daily lives and also find some excellent local eateries serving cheap food.

 

The Museum of the War Against the Bandits (Lucha Contra Bandidos), is in a former convent close to the cathedral near the Plaza Mayor in the old colonial center. If you don’t read Spanish the displays may be difficult to understand, but the piece of the American U-2 spy plane shot down speaks for itself. Also well worth the entrance fee (CUC 2) is the mirador (view) from the convent’s tower, reached by several flights of wooden stairs, which has superb views across the whole town. The cathedral is beautiful inside.

After some siesta to save myself from the heat, I headed out to Plaza Mayor in the late evening, where the “real action” is. With restaurants right next to each other, Plaza Mayor is filled with tourists that come here to party, drink and have a great time! There are live bands playing on the street with children selling trinkets, souvenirs and perhaps asking you to join them at their home for a meal.

 
One of the best places to visit and a must-do in Cuba, Trinidad is a laid back town at the southern end of the country, catering to many tourists flooding the cobbled-stone streets and staying at one of many casa particulares across the city.
