Iberostar Trinidad is a beautiful hotel situated in the middle of town, opposite the main square. It consists of 40 bedrooms, a very pretty lobby and reputedly the best restaurant in Trinidad. The food is very good and the staff attentive. It is a lovely restaurant and the musicians we were lucky enough to listen to during our two dinners were excellent. Its a much smaller and quieter hotel than we've been used to in Cuba. The breakfast buffet in Trinidad is tranquility personified, plenty of choice, a helpful cook ready to provide almost anything the different visitors from various countries wish to consume. When the pictures finally get posted on here you'll see the beautiful famous pineapple lighting centrepiece in the restaurant. It really was a sight to see.
Our bedroom was lovely, perfect décor, well fitted bathroom and the double glazing at the windows looking out to the main part of town looked good but as the Fiesta got to the square outside our bedroom at 2am the noise was indescribable. It was as if they were partying actually in our room! As you'll hear me complain repeatedly throughout our stay in Cuba, getting wifi is bad. So the best time, Peter found was in the computer lounge at 3 A.M. when everyone else, me included, had pillows over their heads trying to sleep.
So once again good in parts and bad points that really could be rectified to make the place much, much better.

... got my pina colada, Sharon her beer and we ordered only one pizza between us this time. The place was definitely busier than yesterday. After lunch, we scooted back home for a little rest.
We got into our bikinis and asked our host to order a cab for us. He even suggested that we pay him once we get back, as we can ask the cab driver to pick us after our swim..which sounded like a good plan. The cab driver came in an old vintage red car and took us to the ...
... the both of us. We enjoyed our drinks after the food.
After lunch, we
went to sit near the central park area. An old guy with cigar came towards us asking for money. Sharon asked him to pose for a photo, which he did and the pic came out really good.
We walked back to our
casa and decided to take a nap. Dinner was ready by the time we woke up. The dinner started with noodle soup. The meal consisted of pineapple,
mango and papaya ...

Showering in Cuba:
So we already knew about the electric instant hot water heater in the shower…. But here they have the electric plug right in the showers…. And the best in this one here is: you turn on the water and then you also have to turn on the fuse right near the shower curtain, and it turns off after a ...
... to leave. As with so many things in Cuba, and the rest of the Caribbean, what seemed like a very casual set up without any organization delivered a great diving experience, everything just seems to work. This dive was also spectacular, amazing visibility, lots to see, a wreck at about 25 metres and some little swim thoughs in the reef.
After our dive we headed off to Trinidad and arrived at one of the most spectacular cites I have visited in ...
