When is the best time to fly to Trinidad?
The climate in Cuba is wonderfully warm and sunny all year round. The most popular (and hence the most expensive) times to visit are from November to April, which is the dry season, when skies are usually clear throughout the day and night. A cheaper time to travel would be between March and October, during the 'rainy season': don't worry, though the rainy season is a mild one and by no means does it rain all day. Festivals and parties are a way of life, and a regular occurrence in Cuba. Trinidad is especially known for the colourful and traditional way that it celebrates Catholic holidays, so why not visit during the Easter period to see how it's done?
The city of Trinidad, Cuba, dates back to the 19th century, and is a UNESCO world heritage site. Historic cobbled streets, delicious restaurants, a wealth of cultural attractions, vibrant bars playing reggae music into the early hours, and the majestic Escambray mountains all combine to make Trinidad a wonderful destination. Head down to the white sands of Ancón beach, and when you are done swimming and sunbathing make sure to try out some local fish in the traditional fishing villages nearby. The Museum of Archaeology and the Museo Nacional de la Lucha Contra Bandidos (which is filled with fascinating exhibits recording the country's struggle against counterrevolutionaries) are amazing places to while away a morning before sitting down for a delectable Cuban lunch. The Museo Nacional de la Lucha Contra Bandidos also has a lovely old tower, which you can climb to enjoy panoramic views over the city. Keen hikers will adore exploring the various trails through the Escambray mountains, and will be rewarded by sights of colourful indigenous species of birds, lush greenery, and some of the very best views in the country.
