Colonial town of Trinidad is one of the most recommended travel destinations for 2014!

Located in the central Cuban province of Sancti Spíritus, Trinidad was founded in the early 16th century. Often called “the museum city of Cuba”, this perfectly preserved Spanish colonial settlement has been protected since 1988 by UNESCO for its outstanding examples of 18th- and 19th-century architecture.

To truly enjoy your time in Trinidad, make sure you adjust yourself to the same pace as the locals. Slow down...

Private entrance to the apartment

Casa El Tulipan is a lovely one-bedroom apartment with a private entrance and a spacious rooftop terrace where you can enjoy your breakfast in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening... Colourful design and attractive location make it an excellent choice for your Trinidad trip.

Marga and Bernardo, the friendly owners of Casa El Tulipan, go an extra mile to make sure that all guests enjoy their stay in Trinidad and have exceptional time exploring the city. It is worth mentioning that they speak Spanish, English, German, Dutch and Russian so you won't experience any communication problems!
