Anyone visited Trinidad

How many of you visited Trinidad, Cuba? It is UNESCO protected area and I would like to know what should I visit once I am in Trinidad. Is there something that you enjoyed while you were there. I know Trinidad has many museums did you go to check out museums in Trinidad. Which one is worth visit?

remarkable place… only once been there , but on my list to back again.

I was there once - took a tour from Varadero in march / 93. The man that designed the Melia
Marina Varadero is designing a new complex in Trinidad but not suire if it is a marina complex.

I stayed at the bungalows of the Costasur resort on Playa Ancon several years ago. I took a bus every day into Trinidad which was only about 12 kilometers away. The bus was very convenient, and the taxis were not expensive either.

In the old section there quite a few places to sit and eat or just have a drink and listen to music. here is a link toa map of downtown Trinidad. [a href=“http://”]http://www.bedincuba.com/maps/cuba_sancti_spiritus_trinidad_1.jpg[/a]

The old section is not huge, so its a nice place to wander around, cobblestone streets, casas everywhere.

We visited Trinidad Cuba quite a few years ago and stayed at the Ancon hotel in the superior rooms. We visited Trinidad almost every day. To avoid the hustlers, we would go in to Trinidad in the mornings and do our walking tours through the town. We went in there some evenings for to listen to the music venues that were put on in different places throughout the town, they were well worth visiting. Although it was quite a while ago I’m sure the photos below are still relevant.

I preferred the daytime as well. Only went once at night to see a show at the Palenque. As Canuck130 relates,(Hi Joe and Karen, it’s me Vern in case you don’t know.) I found there were a lot of hustlers, within a block or two I must have heard about every scam there was, from needing milk for the baby, to the usual sales pitches for cigars, chicas, etc. But I was able to turn it off after a bit. The best way to avoid this annoyance is just to: either walk by and say nothing or smile and say no thanks. I found I was left alone after a while.

I went in September, it was HOT. I appreciated being able to go back to the breezes of the Costasur beach after my day in the city.

Took the hop-on-off bus 1 CUC to the public beach a couple times but it was too cold (had to wear a sweater one day), found it an interesting town definitely worth a visit, couple good museums.

Don’t remember being bothered much by beggars, certainly not as bad as Havana.

How did you like that casa you stayed? Was everything good and satisfactory?

The casa was excellent, the best I stayed at in Cuba for room, view and food. Ate brekky & cena there everyday with street food for lunch. :sunglasses:

Went once, stayed in a casa, travelled from Cayo Guillermo.
One of my favorite side trips and I’d love to do it again
