DAY 3: Cienfuegos and Trinidad

This morning you will be taken to Trinidad, southeast of Havana. Along the way, we’ll include a stop at the Peninsula de Zapata for a visit to a local crocodile farm before arriving in the colonial port city Cienfuegos. Here you will enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, then embark on a guided tour of this laid back maritime city, known as the 'Pearl of the South', due to its lovely location on a picturesque Caribbean bay. You’ll see the city’s well preserved colonial centre and learn about its proud musical tradition and its famous musicians such as Benny More. You will arrive in Trinidad in the late afternoon.

DAY 4: Highlights of Trinidad Tour

Trinidad, often referred to as the Soul of Cuba, is a highlight of the island and today we’ll include a walking tour of the main sights of the town. Founded in 1514 by the Spanish conquistador Diego Velasquez, Trinidad was, for two hundred years, a major centre for trading sugar and slaves. The wealth generated by the landowners during the region's dark past is reflected by the stunning colonial architecture found in Trinidad's historic centre, which has been completely restored and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

After exploring the cobbled streets of the town, and having lunch in a local restaurant, you may wish to consider a short trip out Playa Ancón, the beautiful beach just a few miles out of town – your guide/driver will be happy to take you. In the evening check out an Afro-Cuban cultural performance or some traditional live music before perhaps heading to the Disco Ayala – a local nightclub located in a cave!

DAY 5: Day at Leisure

Today is at your leisure to relax on the beautiful beaches of Playa Ancon or further explore the town. If you’re feeling more energetic you could consider a day trip to the Gran Parque Natural Topes de Collantes, a forested natural park known for its hiking and bird watching where you’ll also find refreshing rivers and waterfalls where you can swim. There are several other interesting places locally that your guide/driver can take you to.
