- The Plaza Mayor of Trinidad is located in the center of the historical center of the city. It has been key in the Trinidadian life since the foundation of the city in 1514, being its central and most important point.Written June 23, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Very nice beach located 15 minutes drive from Trinidad. We have taken taxi collectivo for 10 eur for 2 people round trip. Sunbed 100 pesos each.Written June 23, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Wonderful park! You can hike on your own here. And my advice would be to hike without a guide. You can go at your own pace, admire the beautiful nature and relax. I went with my sister. The path was clear and there is really no chance of getting lost. 😌🌴Written July 31, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- That was amazing trip. I was always dreaming about swimming near waterfall in the jungle. We were alone there. So much more attractive. Please take good shoes, a lot of climbing way back.Written June 23, 2022
- Quite scenic. We enjoyed our visit to the area as well as learning the history behind the valley. Recommend visiting and taking in the sights.Written March 15, 2020
- Enjoyed walking through the village. Did not attempt to go up the tower as it did not look safe for a senior to do.Written March 15, 2020
- Interesting sugar plantation, with large
owners house, and a 5 storey tower….
Lots of rickety wooden ladders….Written May 16, 2022
- We climbed the tower and it was beautiful! The views were amazing and the time to enjoy and relax while at the top was great!Written March 27, 2020
- I did not visit the museum inside, but the building is very nice, and one of the main sites in Trinidad.Written January 16, 2020
- If you’re visiting Trinidad head here at the outset – you’ll get a useful context on the exploration and colonisation of the region, and the tower provides a useful view from above of the layout of the town.Written March 31, 2020
- Early days for tourism to return so very quiet-only 8 passengers for this day trip which for us was great! Catamaran could probaWe stayed in a Casa Particulares in Trinidad and hopped in a €10 each way Taxi down to the Cayo Iguana Jetty at Casilda. Catamaran set sail for a couple of hours out to Cayo Iguana where we anchored for a pretty choppy snorkel - shame it was so choppy but looked lovely nonetheless. One of the crew was fetching Lobster fresh from the sea to serve for lunch.
We then pulled up at the Jetty on the flat calm side if the small island and disembarked for a stroll along the beach. There were several iguanas of varying size dotted around, and if course when lunch was announced many more came from the bushes. One grabbed our phone when we got too close for a piccie.... likely mistaking it for food. Food was a nice rice & seafood dish with a potato dish and white cabbage accompaniment. Lobster was also served but found out later that the Lobster was an 'extra' not included. The €10 charge was requested in our return - we weren't the only people not aware but paid up anyway - my fault for not listening properly in Spanish to the Cuban guy who offered it. It was a bit tough though which was disappointing.
We hadn't been told how long we were able to stay so after lunch and a while on the beach, most of us returned to the Catamaran but we didn't cast off for another hour or more. This was fine though... We had beer/vodka on the boat, and as there were only 8 guests on board we had ample room to stretch out and enjoy the sun.
The return journey was faster and smoother and overall a lovely dayWritten February 13, 2022
- Very nice park with quite many places to sit down and relax. You can always find interesting people there. Park is located near exclusive Iberostar hotel.Written June 29, 2022
- Retaining much of its sugar plantation equipment and property, this is well worth visiting to understand how the wealth of the sugar barons was created, and what the process was.
The rather unsettling part was seeing how terribly the slaves were treated, accommodated, hunted down when they tried to escape, and punished. Climb the high tower they used to keep an eye on the slaves in the fields.
On a lighter note it is interesting to find out how the sugar cane was processed after cutting.Written November 7, 2019
- We visited Judith Faife's gallery in February 2019 as part of a Viking cruise tour. She is a lovely talented person who opened her gallery and home for us to see and explore. Today I picked up a piece I bought from her which I had framed. It is now hanging in my home and will always remind me of beautiful Cuba, Trinidad and the Cuban people.Written June 5, 2019
- The museum is located on old Trinidad's (small) main square and worth taking a half hour or so to go thru. There is good signage. Be sure to see the toilet (patented by Thomas Crapper) and the complicated shower. The museum is housed in a colonial mansion, which is interesting in its own right.Written March 26, 2020
