More attractions and variety per square meter

The province of Sancti Spíritus is located in the central zone of the island, very close to interesting cities such as Cienfuegos and Santa Clara. It is a province that you should not miss, because in relation to its surface it has more tourist attractions and greater variety than almost any other province of the island. Two of the first towns founded in Cuba are in this province: Sancti Spiritus and Trinidad.

Trinidad

Trinidad

Plaza Mayor - Trinidad

Trinidad, the third oldest village in Cuba, is one of the best preserved architectural complexes in the country. The multicolored beauty of this enchanting city was declared a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988. It is worth getting lost in its cobbled streets, with its small squares and churches, its beautiful palaces and colorful houses with colonial patios.

Named "Craft City of the World" in 2018, the province's traditions include pottery, hand and guano weaving, dances, tunes, verses and songs, the traditional canchánchara (Mambo drink), and the yayabera, a garment that gave rise to the very Cuban guayabera.

Nature

Mountains and trails perfect for nature and adventure tourism, such as the Escambray mountains, among which Topes de Collantesexcels as a historical natural scenario that starred in the Cuban revolution because it was there that Che Guevara's camp was installed.

In the North area of the province, Parque Nacional Caguanes, declared by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve, has an important system of caves in which you will find numerous places of archaeological interest.

The Presa Zaza lake, the largest artificial lake in Cuba, is magnificent for the sport fishing of trout and the hunting of ducks, quails, pigeons, etc.

The Valle de los Ingenios, also declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, was one of the largest sugar-producing regions in Cuba, but during the second half of the 19th century it went through a great decline. In spite of that decline, sugar haciendas of the time are still preserved.

An ecological and cultural system that blends monuments, society and nature. The best preserved hacienda of neoclassical architecture is the Manaca-Iznaga hacienda with its bell tower and spectacular views over the valley.

Playa Ancón

The province has beautiful beaches, located in the Ancón Peninsula and its surroundings, with areas suitable for diving and snorkeling. One of the most beautiful beaches in the south of the country just 11 km from Trinidad is Playa Ancón. This proximity allows you to stay in Trinidad and go only to spend the day, without having to stay in a typical all-inclusive beach resort.
