The city of Cienfuegos sits in a scenic natural bay, attracting visitors from across the country and further afield since its establishment in the early 19th century.

On the 26th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: make a trip to Parque Jose Marti, take a stroll through Punta Gorda, and then admire the landmark architecture of Palacio de Valle.

Built on sugar and seemingly preserved in molasses, the town of Trinidad attracts visitors with its well-aged 19th century architecture and rustic charm, showcasing the sounds, scents, and sights of days gone by.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Topes de Collantes and Convento de San Francisco de Asis. Visiting Ancon Beach and Salto del Caburni will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Museo de Historia Municipal, admire the sheer force of Parque el Cubano, and don't miss a visit to Plaza Mayor.

To find maps, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, read Trinidad attractions planner.

You can drive from Cienfuegos to Trinidad in 1.5 hours. Other options are to take a bus; or take a shuttle. In December, daytime highs in Trinidad are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Varadero.
