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.

After breakfast we had a walking tour of Trinidad. Apparently it is largely a Unesco world heritage site, probably because it is so run down and there's no other money available to repair everything. Visited the cathedral and saw other buildings as we walked around. After lunch (sandwich, which was toasted tough bread outside a slice of ham and …
... go there then; buy an access card (valid for 1 hours use) with a code and use it for the time on the card. That is if you can get onto the site and there is some time left on the card. But, as there is so many people trying to log on its difficult to make a connection, and when you buy a card you need to make sure there is time left on it. They tell you there is but often I think it’s almost used up. All too hard to ...
... at the top we were rewarded with wonderful panoramic views over Trinidad and the surrounding countryside.
Dinner at Graceland…casa Norelvis y Liubetsy
We dined at casa Norelvis y Luibetsy in the evening; our meal included: pumpkin soup, pork, roast potatoes, salad, rice and beans. It was certainly wholesome and very filling, not least because of the huge portions of meat piled onto our ...

Back to the little village and we turn left, because according to the map, that’s the fastest way to Trinidad, when we discovered a mind-blowing view down from the town center. The Turn-off didn’t work out, since it is a no Drive through…. So we went back the way we came and enjoyed the wonder full views this way.
