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!.
Trinidad is a city where you will hear salsa music on every corner. Dancing is an important expression of Cuban culture. The dance steps and hip movements are already inherited from childhood. Taking one(or two) salsa lessons may be an unforgettable experience, even if you are not fond to dancing. You can find a professional teacher almost in every corner of the city.
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.
Dinner at Estela's
It is one of the paladars (home restaurants) most famous city. A nice 1830 colonial house on 557 Calle Desengaño, with tables on the patio where they serve simple but quality Cuban cuisine, one of the best 'ropa vieja'(shredded meat) of the town. Made of lamb with lemon and pumpkin, its taste will be hard to out beat along the isliand. Cocktails, local wines and excellent service, infinitely better than state and private restaurants in the vicinity of the main square.
