Since the building was built at the beginning of the XIX century, the design and the original structure have almost not changed. The house retains its colonial atmosphere. Casa Meyer Hostel has an inner patio with ornamental plants and surrounded by porches, where you can rest during the warm Trinitarian afternoons. Our hostel is located in the historic city center, near all museums and squares and right down the street from the bus station. We can recommend the best places and opportunities that Trinidad offers. Come be a guest in our "Casa Particular" and feel its history!.
Casa de la Musica(Music House)
It is a beautiful and picturesque place where art, culture, traditions are stirred up with the rhythm of Cuban salsa. Here they do DANCE! Both foreign and locals all dancing with a very good band from 11am to 12 am. From this place you may have a beautiful view of the city center and on the horizon the coast of Trinidad, perfect for a mojito while lowering the sun is observed. Whether yuo like dancing or just listening to salsa, is an special place for it. In the afternoon there attentive dance teachers(bookings are needed) and you can get good music in the record store inside the place, with a very sympathetic attention from the vendor. In the night, when the live music show is finished, indoors and until 2 am, the local works as a nightclub where you can dance with Cuban and international music until 2 am.
Beach-tour in a vintage car
Beside the very popular Playa Ancón, Trinidad has also other beaches that are worth a visit. To see them, you have to made all the way through the coastline, from Trinidad to Ancon Beach. It would be a great idea to hire one of the old-timer taxis to like if you were back in the fifties. Your first stop will be in La Boca, a little fishing village, located 4 Kms from Trinidad, where you may take some good pics of the everyday life of fishermen and the nice landscape(at this point the river coming from the mountains meets the Caribbean sea shaping a very nice scenery). Next stop, Playa Maria Aguilar, it not actually a beach but some entrances of sands among the rocks, the perfect place for diving if you are fond of it, there are beautifull underwater landscapes, highly recommended. You may do it by your own, only with the mask and the flippers or maybe hire some local instructor to do it more professional, with the tanks and all the required equipment(they are actually very cheap). Furthermore there is a cool sea sighted rustic restaurant named 'EL Grill' where you may have a good lobster.
Eventually you'll be dropped off at Playa Ancón, where you can spend the rest of the afternoon, swiming, relaxing with a nice mojito in the big white sand peninsula or take a ride in a catamaran.
Salto del Caburni
It is a beautiful place in the blue mountains of the Cordillera Guamuaya, an essential tour if you travel to Trinidad. You have to take a taxi and made the 12 Km(7.5 miles) between the mountains road that leads to Topes de Collante, Once there the path that leads to 'El Salto(waterfall) del Caburní' is amazing, but recomended being in good condition, no recommended for children or elderly people because is a hard path of about 3 km(around 2 miles) downhill and a tougher coming back. But it definitely worth only for to cool down after hiking, observing the water coming down from the ridge. Ofcourse be sure you bring good shoes and swimming stuff, 'cause you may not want to miss the refresh in the natural pool.
