Trinidad

Defying the passing of time, little in Trinidad seems to have changed since the 1800s. Grand colonial mansions preside over the central neo-baroque Plaza Mayor. Pace of life here is slow, hooves clatter while Cubans sit chatting in doorways. The city’s cobbled streets and colourful facades are perfect for afternoon meanderings punctuated by coffees and Cuba Libres.

15 minutes from the powdery beaches of Playa Ancon on the Caribbean Coast, Trinidad is set to a backdrop of emerald-clad hills. Explore the surrounding Escambray mountains by bike or on horseback. Waterfalls offer respite from the heat and are peaceful spots for picnics and a midday dip. The former centre of sugar production, visit the Valle de los Ingenios to discover the history of the industry.

Tranquil by day, Trinidad pulsates at night when bands pile into restaurants, bars are packed and locals dance salsa out on the street.
