Havana seemed like a time-warp with it's art deco and vintage cars, but this place is probably even more of one. As soon as you arrive you feel transported to the colonial era. Yes, it has countless souvenir shops, but in the original buildings so the look of the town is not spoiled in any way. It's a photographer's delight for sure.
Note :- our guide informed us that most souvenirs from Cuba are made in Trinidad so to buy here as things are cheaper, however, I found Havana to have the better selection of quality gifts and am glad I didn't hold off purchasing there. What Trinidad does have though are people selling homemade things from their front porch and you can get some lovely, unique items that help the local people.

Small and indeed very clean (when compared with the streets in Havana)! Entertainment, music and restaurants focused in two areas: Plaza Mayor and the Bus Station square. Excursion to Valle de Igenios is an excellent add-on, at least have a break from the hangover!

Trinidad is between the Caribbean Sea and the Escambray Mountains and is one of the oldest Cuban cities. It boasts much colonial baroque architecture and features many brightly coloured buildings. Narrow uneven cobbled street that can cope with heavy rain lead to the beautiful main square with its important buildings. There is one of the oldest houses in Cuba plus museums, the Catholic Church. the former Convent, the 'House of Music' and the oldest car in Cuba which is a 1914 Ford which is being restored.

We visited in Trinidad in February 2020. Trinidad is historical city. You can feel and see time of Colonialism.

Well preserved area for those interested in the architecture although some may dislike the original paving of whatever stones were laying around a few hundred years ago. It’s easy to trip. Lots of resturants as well as shops and historic spots. Don’t buy the cigars from street vendors, they are fakes made with banana leaves.

I stayed in Trinidad for the summer of 2019 and it was a magical, dynamic and unforgettable experience. This place is not perfect and it will ask a lot of you (especially living here as a tourist) however it is worth it. I stayed at El Artesano (airBNB) (casa particular) and had the most wonderful, trustworthy and caring hosts, Olga and Yenia. The summer was unbelievably hot at times.. be ready. If you are here for a long time make sure you have the right shoes to walk on the cobble stone roads. I loved going to Cafe Don Pepe for the Bon Bon Frio .. everyday (MUST HAVE) I enjoyed eating at La Botija, Los Conspiradores, El Paraito, (as a Vegetarian) and going to Playa Ancon, either finding a Taxi/ Collectivo, or going with a Motorcycle Taxi (There is also a bus for 5 CUC).... so fun. But be careful at the beach because I was often stung in the water (Agua Mala) You can find the Motor-taxi at the corner of the Iberostar/ by the park. I also frequented El Jigue for late night Pizza after dancing my heart out at La Cueva (BRING HAND FAN PLS). People love Rincon De La Salsa and Casa De La Musica too for dancing/ salsa. if you are looking for cheap drinks at night, the bars below Casa de la musica sell them for 1 CUC.
I enjoyed listening to the beautiful musicians on the street at night and drinking Rum with them and learning about their lives. I also loved learning Spanish. I would totally recommend an extended stay in this Magical, Vibrant City, as well as my very special Hostal

We visited Trinidad in January of 2020 under the Visa “ Support of the Cuban People”. The owners of our lovely Casa Particular, Perla Negra, recommended the services of the amazing private guide Duviel Lopez. We recommend him highly because, if you are traveling under this US Visa, he will take you to visit the privately owned studios of Trinidad’s best artists and to non-governmental points of interest, of which there are many in this beautiful and interesting town. Duviel speaks English beautifully, is very well-informed and will give you an amazing look into the art, culture and history, all the while being sure you are supporting the Cuban people, who are friendly, talented and kind! Duviel also has other tours and he can recommend the very best privately-owned restaurants (Paladars) in Trinidad. We ate very, very well as a result! Duviel gets our five-star vote for the private guide of Trinidad! He can be reached at duviellopez@gmail.com or WhatsApp +535 8194065

Trinidad was my favorite city in Cuba. It was great fun to stroll around and enjoy the shops, bars and restaurants. The architecture was beautiful and the shopping was good. There are lots of outdoor activities around Trinidad--we went horseback riding, hiking and to a nice beach, Playa Ancon. You can rent scooters to go there. We didn't get to do that because the rental place was closed the day we went.

On a recent trip I got to experience Havana, Las Terrazas, Cienfuegos, and Trinidad. All are beautiful and distinct in their own fashion, but walking around Trinidad, climbing a church (now museum) tower and looking at the beautiful cobblestone streets and architecture was a special treat. Colorful, music playing, kids running around, and delightful eateries made for a magical experience.
