One of the side trips you can take from Trinidad, Cuba, is a day trip aboard an old sugar mill train that runs from old town Trinidad out into the countryside to some of the old and now disused sugar cane factories. The train ride is rather fun with Cuban singers for entertainment. The valley used to be dotted with... More

A valley of sugar cane and sugar mills, the views from up above are nice, but that is about it. Some of the sugar mill ruins can be visited, with OK tours in English. Not much is left.

A horse back trip into the valle and onto the waterfalls was a good day out to see traditional subsistence farming, according to Cuban friends this community is likely to become merely a tourist attraction within the next few years with the income from tourists outstripping their farming so visit now. February is the dry season and the waterfall was... More

Worth a visit if you are travelling from Trinidad to Santa Clara. It's a quick stop to climb up the tower (steep steps, not suitable for everyone) and have a nice view of the countryside around. The place is quite turistic, with many locals trying to sell tablecloths and craft goods

This valley is worth a quick stop if staying in Trinidad. In fact, we visited as we left to go to Santa Clara. It is an old sugar cane plantation, where they used slaves to work the land. The best part is ascending the tower to see the views, which costs 2 CUC.

apart from the view from the top of the tower, though definitely not worth the long drive out of Trinidad. Nothing else worthwhile to see

We went to the valley by a diesel train. The ride was probably the only positive experience. The train goes slowly so you can watch countryside. It does not go to hacienda Guachinanga and Valley of the Sugar Mills anymore as the railway is in bad condition. The first stop is a place called FNTA. It is a small village... More

Gives you a feel for what a sugar plantation was like. The story of the 2 brothers and their father is amusing. Unless you go on the train, which we didn't, the highlight is the view from the top of the tower which will cost you 2 CUC.
