Cienfuegos & Trinidad - Overnight
Price (2014): Adult 142 CUC / Child 106 CUC
This excursion will take you to two beautiful cities of the south-central part of Cuba (Cienfuegos and Trinidad) and to the “El Nicho” Natural Park that lies in the heart of the lush mountains of the Sierra Escambray.
In Cienfuegos, known as “the Pearl of the South” due to its architecture influenced by the French (who were the founders of the city), you will do a panoramic tour and a sunset boat ride through the Bay of Cienfuegos (the largest in Cuba) and then spend the night at hotel Pasacaballos.
The next day the route through the beautiful Cuban countryside will take you to the colonial city of Trinidad founded in 1514 and declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. It's one of the best preserved cities in the Caribbean from the time when the sugar trade was the main industry in the region. This tour will take you to the picturesque Old Trinidad (aka Colonial Trinidad) with its cobbled streets, colonial squares, church, museum, monuments, colourful colonial buildings, and handicraft market; this is where you will get the chance to try the traditional cocktail of the region, the Canchanchara.
Inclusions: Tour guide, transportation in air-conditioned bus, all meals, accommodation for one night, a traditional Canchanchara cocktail in Old Trinidad.
