Day 2: Trinidad

Breakfast. City tour through Trinidad, which was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The colonial city of museums Trinidad was founded during the early 16th century and it seems as if almost nothing has changed since then. The ‘Villa de la Santisima Trinidad de Cuba’ has a medieval feel to it with its vaulted arch bridges, timeless medieval places, very well preserved buildings with neoclassicist and baroque influences. This unique city does not only enchant with its many sights and museums, but also through the proximity of the see and the mountains. The refreshing cocktail called ‘Canchanchara’ made of limes, honey and ice which is offered in the world famous restaurant of the same name is not the only thing that will amaze you!

Tour guide:
We would like to point out that the tour guides’ knowledge of the German language can vary. Especially during the main season (November-April) demand for German-speaking tour guides is very high. Therefore it may be the case that tour guides have knowledge of the German language but cannot speak it fluently. Generally English skills are very good, so there should not be any communication issues.

General information and program changes:
Please consider that sights, gastronomical facilities can close last-minute and without advance notice. In cases like that we will try our best to find an offer of equal value within the limits of resources available.

Regarding hotels, please note:
Cuba is in a difficult situation when it comes to hotels. Due to overbookings it can come to last-minute reservation changes. The hotels cannot be compared to the standards of hotels in other countries despite their category specifications (Stars) and/or the affiliation with international hotel chains. Due to the colonial construction method of many city hotels, not all rooms have windows.

Changes, fallacies, transmission or typos are reserved.
Our announcements, confirmations and travel conditions are essential for our offers.
