Santa Clara & Trinidad
Both Santa Clara and Trinidad are cities that should not be missed when traveling to Cuba. Santa Clara is home to several historical attractions, including the mausoleum of Che Guevara, the hero of the Cuban Revolution. Trinidad was previously a significant sugar processing city. In its city center, you will see many buildings from this time period. Plus, only a few kilimeters from Trinidad is one of the most beautiful hiking regions of Cuba, which you will also get to experience. This mini trip perfectly combines two great cities, while providing enough time in each to really explore and sightsee. What are you waiting for?
