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.

Today we leave Havana to travel to the central south coast. We now have a Cuban guide called Daniel and a driver Francesco who will be with us for 3 days. We finally leave the city and head onto the 3 lane motorway at 10am, we drive non stop until a bathroom stop is totally at the top of my list! Then we move further …
Observed having another very nice fruit and omelet breakfast by sparrows and lizards. Morning coffee happened on the terraced stepped plaza next to the church. There were a number of birds there and we caught a glimps of the very small humming bird. We decided to walk up to the ruin of Ermita de la Popa which we had seen from the bell tower terrace the night before. On the way up there were a number of people selling their wares, including an ...
Breakfast was fruit, with guava, sweet biscuits and pastry. Sparrows shared our bread and some odd little lizards with curly tails scampered around the courtyard. More roosters depicted, this time made from beads and buttons on the courtyard wall, we stil haven't worked out their significance. The dresser at the entrance to the courtyard had some of the local fruit and veg, guavas, cassava etc. on it. The ...
... but without breakfast (don't worry, I know how to deal with this one already ;). The place was the best I have been so far in this trip, en suite, terrace, fridge, huge TV. I'll take that!
A really good start!
I spent the first day walking around everywhere as I usually do, to know the town before the carnival starts.
All right, this carnival is not a famous one as there is not much happening in terms of chars, etc. It ...
... That way everyone is happy. There doesn't seem to be any problem with religion in this so called communist state, although Ely says that if you want a career in government you wouldn't want to be openly religious. Spend the late afternoon at the beach swimming in the warm Caribbean Sea. No beach towels as the hotel has run out of clean ones, "one hour" we are told, but when we return to our room 2 hours later there is still no sign ...
