Trinidad in Cuba

 

Trinidad, Cuba

The town was quiet except for the sound of the horse’s hooves as it trotted quickly along the cobbled stones. Flashes of pastel colours passed by in a haze as we turned sharply into streets, each one as pretty as the next. Then we arrived and standing before us was a round smiling lady; ’Welcome to our home.’

This is Trinidad in Cuba and it really is like stepping onto a film set. A set with cowboys in Cuban hats, striding horses carrying carts, with pedal rickshaws and cobbled streets lined with colourful houses and live salsa blaring from every street corner.

If you’re looking for culture in Cuba, Trinidad is your place. You can spend hours just wandering around the pretty streets or sat in one of the bars drinking rum and listening to Cuban salsa.

Cubans love to dance (they even dance on the streets!) and it seems that nearly everyone you meet is either a salsa teacher or a musician. Going to music halls by yourself is so safe and all you have to do is just stand (or sit) around looking pretty and within minutes, a Cuban man will approach you and ask you to dance.

Staying in a Casa particular is the best way to experience the hospitality of the Cuban people who open up their home to tourists and cook you breakfast and dinner. If you need more interaction with locals then just wander around and speak to the locals playing games outside or just sat on walls watching life in Trinidad go by.

Trinidad has got to be my favourite place in Cuba. The best thing about it is that every single picture you take will look amazing even if you're not a great photographer!

    Cuba is a wonderful place. I was in Havana and Varadero a few days ago .. I stayed in private houses. My vacations were very good. I recommend private homes and private restaurants. I also recommend traveling in private cars to get around the city. In Cuba, people are wonderful. Old Havana is a place to visit if you want to know about colonial architecture. Next time I hope to visit the city of Trinidad.
