Colors of Trinidad, Cuba
We’ve stayed 6 nights in Trinidad, Cuba, and it was hard to leave at the end, thats how beautiful it is! The city is rich from historical point of view – it was founded 500 years ago, when Cuba was colonized by Spanish and Trinidad’s main industry was the sugar trade. The Spanish Colonial Architecture is what makes this city a wonderful tourist attraction and is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites.
Am stat 6 nopti in Trinidad, Cuba, si nu mai voiam sa plecam, asa de frumos este! Orasul este mic, dar bogat din punct de vedere istoric. Fondat in urma cu 500 de ani, Trinidad a fost un important punct comercial datorita comertului cu zahar. Trestia de zahar era cultivata in zona, plantatiile fiind muncite de sclavi adusi din Africa. Bogatii vremurilor si-au construit frumoasele case in stil Colonial Spaniol care se gasesc acum in centrul istoric din Trinidad, in jurul Plazei Mayor.

Trinidad looks amazing! I was planing to visit Cuba this Spring. Would you recommend spening 6 nights in Trinidad or other cities too?
Hi Virginia! It depends how much time are you planning to spend in Cuba. We stayed 20 nights – 6 havana, 4 vinales, 2 cienfuegos, 6 trinidad, 2 havana again. For me 6 nights(5days) in Trinidad were amazing, the city is relaxing and beautiful, and also you can do day trips to Valle de los Ingenios (old sugar mills) and also at the beach (playa Ancon). If you have mor questions please don’t hesitate to ask
We are hoping to go there next year and you have really whetted the appetite here Cory. Some great colourful images, …..MM 🍀
Hi Mick, They say to go before things change, so the sooner the better. 🙂 I really loved Cuba, it was unexpectedly beautiful
With relations seemingly warming with the states I think the urgency is increased. Next year it is then. 😎
These are some of the most colorful images I have ever seen from Cuba 🙂
It’s a real visual treat, Cori 🙂
