We loved travelling in Cuba and while Trinidad wasn’t our favourite place in the country, it did have a lot of charm. We loved the old Spanish colonial buildings, the beautiful nearby beach of Playa Ancon and the neighbouring Valley of Ingenios. The only thing we didn’t enjoy was the constant hassle from street touts. We’re used to it and we know that everyone is out to make a buck so we just joked with them and had a good time with it, but it did take away from Trinidad’s otherwise peaceful atmosphere.

  1. My families hostel is right by the little park in front the Iglesia and Convento de San Francisco Church. It’s a much quieter part of town. Trinidad is one of the top tourist sites in Cuba and that’s why it attracts so many people. I really enjoyed your video, it made it feel like I was there again. Thanks of for sharing.

  2. Fabulous compilation with the video – loved the old-world landscape along with a spirit of music that lends it own character to this charming city. Sad to know about the touts, wish things were better!

  3. Love it. Some serious video skills going down. That’s next on my list, lol. First gotta build the website. The kids bit was great. I intend to take a few soccer balls with me so if I see some kids without a ball I can give them one. Costs me nothing but to them it’s the world.

  4. I just loved your video! I LOVE the travel channel style with information popping up for new places! Well done! Thanks for creating all of this great content. It’s really helping me in my research for next month’s visit to Cuba.
