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 …
... first but it was amazing with a cold beer. The ribs were fried and the black rice was amazing. Highly recommend. We hung out here for quite some time on the island and just chilled in the cooler air before heading back to the very warm 35C Cienfuegos.
We arrived back in Cienfuegos at our homestay B&B to find fresh lobster waiting for us. Amazing everything we had at this B&B was caught fresh that day (the fish I mean).
... the longer you are the water the warmer it gets, it was cooler in the shade. The Cuban heads must be sore after all the rum and sun at the end of the day. Rubén said there used to be showers and toilets at the beach but since 1994 with the government going bankrupt a lot of infrastructure has been left to wrack and ruin. The more we travel, we realise that Australia really has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Then we enter Trinidad, the town centre in a car ...
Sliding Bed sheets:
Something we discovered here in Cuba are the annoying bed sheets. Once they were too small for us, so one of us turned the other had no sheets and got cold. Then as today we had it often, you have the sheet which is big enough, but the cover on top of it is so light and slippery you still wake up in the night because you’re a little ...
... and checked out the beautiful buildings of this colonial town that doesn't appear to have changed a great deal for over 100 years. After killing my camera battery, I decided to go for a bike ride to check out the surrounding area. Megan was put off by the heat and stayed back at the casa particular, whilst I went for a ride and saw the vast majority of Trinidad and the surrounding area in one afternoon - I got some great photos that I otherwise ...
