Trinidad was probably our favourite place on Cuba. The colourful colonial architecture, cobblestone streets, horses with carriages and an overall feeling that time has completely stopped in this town, makes it wonderfully authentic. The amount of private homestays in beautiful homes with high ceilings and living rooms that look like museums make even room-hunting an interesting experience. Forget about booking Cuba lodging online, the nicest spots are found walking around and knocking on doors.
We slept two nights in Trinidad, spent an afternoon at Playa Ancon beach, and took a number of nice strolls around town – including at night. Trinidad felt even safer than La Habana. Actually, all of Cuba felt very safe.
