this is a beautiful plaza but when we went in january there were far too many tourists in the city. "saturated." i would visit another small cuban town in high-season. i would visit this in off-season, however.

Plaza Mayor and old Trinidad in general was a real treat. It's crazy to think places like this exist in the Western hemisphere, let alone the world. You'll definitely see a lot of other tourists here, but it is worth the trip.

Planned to spend 2 days after a 3 1/2 hour bus ride from Havana. By 4pm we had seen everything there was to see in this sleepy one horse town. Fortunately we were staying at Las Cuevas, the resort at the edge of town that had a pool, bar and restaurant. We hung out there for the next 2 nights... More

I was amazed at how preserved this town was. Plaza Mayor is not only very pretty, it's the only place to pick up Wi-Fi connection in town. Like everyone else, we grabbed a take away cocktail and sat on the steps hoping that our Wi-Fi cards might work. If they didn't, it's a fab place to hang out and people... More

Words cannot describe how charming and colourful the Plaza Mayor is in Trinidad. It's the perfect place for photo ops, taking a break to people watch, or grab a bite to eat in the restaurants around. An obvious must-see attraction if you're in Trinidad. I hope to visit again one day! The entire tourist-y section of the town really extends... More

There is nothing like walking by this area after 4:00pm or early in the morning. Hot weather in Cuba mainly during the summer time should be considered to really enjoy this place. You should avoid walk by noon time. I recommend walk around and enjoy yourself mingling with tourists and locals or just walk. The sunset time is also a... More
