Trinidad is a city in the province of Sancti Spíritus in Cuba. Together with Vale de los Ingenios it has been a World Heritage Site since 1988. Protected between the Caribbean Sea and the Escambray Mountain, the stunning beauty of the Caribbean Sea draws thousands of tourists to the island. It was founded in 1514 by Diego Velásquez, and gained fame as a colonial sugar capital, maintaining such prestige until the early 20th century.

With vehicles banned in its protected historic area, the return to the past is even more meaningful to see only horses and carts passing through the streets. Trinidad has a number of important points to visit, some with privileged views across the region to the Caribbean Sea. Other attractions to enjoy city life include watching the musicians perform live as visitors sip their mojitos made with Havana Club.
