A six-hour drive outside of Cuba’s capital, Havana, sits the small destination of Trinidad. Surrounded by sugar and tobacco plantations, Trinidad is a small yet vibrant town. Visually stunning with brightly coloured colonial-era houses packed tightly together, the place is full of cobblestone streets, horses, and fruit vendors.
One of the most desirable parts of Trinidad is its close proximity to the Escambray Mountains—a short taxi ride will end up at Topes de Collantes, one of the parks included in this range. The taxi will drop passengers off where the road stops, from which point it is a beautiful hike through gorgeous wilderness to then cool down at Caburni Falls.
Trinidad offers a quaint escape from the business of Havana, with the locals enthusiastic to make visitors feel right at home, and great nature just around the corner. This little town is ready to provide a welcome retreat.
