A panoramic 90-minute drive from Cienfuegos will bring you to the colonial town of Trinidad. Enjoy a walking tour through one of the earliest towns founded in the New World by the Spaniards. Trinidad dates back to 1514 and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Explore the Plaza Mayor -- the main plaza -- and visit the Trinidad Museum of Cuba & the Caribbean. The latter offers a terrific view of town from its tower, as well as insights into local culture and history.

The La Canchánchara Bar offers a taste of Trinidad in its signature cocktail and local music.

Appease the culture vulture within you with two artistic encounters. Visit the studio of a potter to see his/her unique works and feel free to ask questions about the style and medium of work. Then, visit a gallery paying homage to a local artist -- an opportunity to examine his/her work and to ask for a personal interpretive explanation.

Lunch will be served at a local restaurant during your tour.


Actual tour duration may vary from 6.5 to 7.5 hours as the ship has to navigate the narrow channel to and from the anchorage during daylight hours.

Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair or for those with mobility limitations. Walking is required on uneven ground. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

Tour times are estimates and may be subject to change. Tours may run in different order to provide the best experience.

The community project associated with this tour is included to promote further understanding and interaction with the Cuban people. As is the fluid nature of community projects in Cuba, the location and type of community project visited may vary to provide the best experience for our guests.
