After breakfast at the hotel, we depart for Cienfuegos, where we take a panoramic tour of Cienfuegos, and have lunch in the area.
Cienfuegos was founded in 1819 around a spectacular natural bay - the only city in Cuba to be founded by French settlers. It is known as the "Pearl of the South" or the ‘’Paris of Cuba’’.
We then depart to Trinidad, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best examples of colonial architecture in the Americas.
Trinidad is a beautifully preserved Spanish colonial settlement built on the back of the sugar and slave trade. At the peak of the sugar industry there were 56 sugar mills in the region. The city is lined with cobble-stoned streets, mansions adorned with Italian frescoes, and troubadours strum their guitars in the square at night.
After a tour of Trinidad, we head to our accommodation for tonight, either a colonial hostel or private houses, with dinner included.
