I visit Trinidad at least once a year, traveling down from Havana, and it is always beautiful to spend time in the charming old city both day and night.

It is also just a ten-minute drive away from the paradisiacal Ancon Beach for travelers who need sand between their toes daily.

At one point, Trinidad was the sugar capital of Cuba, where the Sugar Aristocracy prospered from the lucrative trade until the town suddenly was priced out of the competition on the world stage.

Because of this, Trinidad became a quiet and forgotten backwater that was excluded from modernization.

That is why the historic city is untouched and today is home to the best-kept colonial architecture and details in Cuba.

How To Do Multi Day Tours Of Cuba?

Many people want to know about multi-day tours in Cuba to visit the best and most popular destinations, like Trinidad, Vinales, Cienfuegos, Varadero, and more.

Several international tour companies are unable to offer tours to or in Cuba due to the ongoing sanctions that affect certain markets for Cuba travel.

Civitatis is a UK-based tour company that is able to operate in Cuba and is a huge and trusted tour company for the Spanish-speaking travel world (they have bilingual guides). I have done various tours with Civitatis in Cuba and have always had great experiences.

One of the multi-day tours they offer is a two-day tour of Trinidad and Cienfuegos, an organized tour that I did last year. That was a great experience, with super guides, organization, and transport. This tour includes the best of central Cuba.

You can also check out longer Cuba tour options if you have more time:

Yes, casa particulares in Cuba are legal.

That said, there are registered, approved casa particulares, and there are those renting out space in Cuba without being a registered and approved casa particular.

If your casa particular is listed on booking apps and pages on the internet, the casa is registered and approved – so don’t worry.

If you want to make sure that the casa you are staying at is registered and approved, you can look for the sign on the door of the approved casa.

That is a blue anchor on a white background, and this sign will be on top of or on the door of your casa, showcasing that it is an approved casa for rental in Cuba.
