The firSt day you can visit the city of Cienfuegos, founded on april 22, 1819 with families from Burdeos, New Orleans and Haiti. It is called La Perla del Caribe ( Pearl of the South) and the City of Benny More, his famous singer of son ( cuban rhythm).
This place seduces travelers from around the island with its elegance, enlightened French spirit and feisty Caribbean panaché. It is the Paris of Cuba. Including in this tour a promenade in a ship all around the blue and beautiful Bay of Cienfuegos.
We will stop to see The Jagua Castle, a bayside fort made by spaniards in 1745 to protect the bay against pirates, at that time the third most important fortress in Cuba. Lunch in a restaurant in front of the bay ( mainly seafood). Return to the city to see the Parque Marti including the Terry Theater, Prado Promenade, a wealthy neighbourhood “ Punta Gorda” and the amazing Palace of Valle.
Take a shower in a private house, the same you will use to sleep (price around 40 cuc per couple). Dinner in a different restaurant (maybe in the same house). Night time in the Benny's Bar.
The second day we wake up and have breakfast ( included in the price) and we go to the city of Trinidad ( 1514), declared by UNESCO in 1988 World Heritage Site. It is one-of-a-kind preserved Spanish colonial settlement where the clocks stopped ticking in 1850 and-bar the odd gaggle of turist. Built on huge sugar fortunes amassed in the adjacent Valle de Ingenios the early 19th century, the richest of the town's pre-War of Independence heyday are still very much in evidence in illustrius colonial-style mansions bedecked with Italian frescoes . Wedgewood china, Spanish furniture and french chandeliers.
