Trinidad is a colonial town about four hours South East from Havana. It’s a beautiful, colorful town with a more slow-paced way of life and was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1988.

Where to stay:
||DINNER AT LA BOTIJA
Satisfy your hunger at La Botija for dinner, which is open 24 hours but commands quite a line around dinner time, so make sure to arrive before starvation sets in. They have quite a large selection of tapas style food — definitely one of the better meals we ate while in Cuba.
||DINNER AT LA RADDICION
Get back into town for dinner at La Raddicion, which has great lobster and vegetarian options as well. Their service can be slow (an expectation in Cuba), so make sure you’re not on a tight schedule before dining here.
||DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY IN A CAVE
End the night at the Disco Ayala, a semi-cheesy but have-to-see-once kind of nightclub, inside a cave. Check with locals about the best night to go because sometimes they do a show earlier in the night as well.
Things to do in Trinidad, Cuba:

There is also the large city of Cienfuegos very close-by. So, if you grow bored of Trinidad, it could be a nice change just to hop over to Cienfuegos for an afternoon or a night. You can easily find a private taxi in Trinidad to take you to Cienfuegos for about 20$ per carload. There are also some communal taxi services (found around the Viazul terminal in Trinidad) which can take you to Cienfuegos for about 1$ per person.
