About 5 hours southeast of Havana is the small town of Trinidad. Upon arrival, you immediately notice the cobblestone streets and colorful houses. It felt like time stopped over 100 years ago. The people seemed relaxed and life was slowly going on. At the more pleasant temperatures in the evening, the locals sat on the terrace or at the roadside. The water at Ancon beach was as warm as in a whirlpool. Along the beach where sun loungers under palm umbrellas – this is how the Caribbean’s should feel.
