Trinidad de Cuba – a Cuban Must

Trinidad de Cuba is a town in central Cuba. Together with the nearby Valle de los Ingenios it has been a UNESCO World heritage site since 1988.

Trinidad de Cuba is my favorite place in Cuba after Havana. It has a colourful and inspiring atmosphere as Havana but with a small town feeling. During the day you can wander around and get lost. You can capture great holiday photos from the well-kept colonial buildings or relax and taste La Canchánchara, a drink that originates from Trinidad.

Before the sunset you can hit the beach, south from the town. Take some rom, food and friends with you and watch the mother nature painting the sky with amazing colours.

Head back to town for some live music in the small plaza midway up the steps leading to the Casa de la Música. It doesn’t matter whether you are a rookie or a pro, just crab a partner and go move your hips with the beats of salsa. Take a break and have a Mojito while cooling down from dancing.

Once you are ready for some serious party, climb up the mountain asking  for Discoteca Ayala, one of the most amazing dance clubs you have ever been. It is also called La Cueva, the Cave. It is a club carved out of a deep two-level cave. The party there gets hot and crazy. When the party is over and if you still have energy, just follow the crowd back to the town for some after party.

I had amazing time and met some really cool travellers as well as locals. Trinidad is a must while in Cuba!
