A spot with lots of history but quite touristic. The numerous stands selling embroidery and dolls are there for a reason. But all in all, nice scenery.

Avoid to pay at the Mirador to get a view of the whole valey. A few meters away you will see the same for free from the road. Try to visit one of the old farms. Just for 1$ we visited one abandoned sugar farm...More

We took a taxi from Trinidad to Santa Clara and visited the valley on the way, stopping to climb the tower and enjoy the beautiful views from the viewpoints. It was very interesting to see this different side of Trinidad.

Lots to do in the Valle, there was the old estate, the tower and the Canopy ride. Loved the Canopy as it consisted of 4 actual cables with the final one landing you right near where you had started. Highly recommend it.

Very scenic. Can be done by train but we had a car and driver and guide so went with them. Beautiful viewpoint which has zip wires as well. Lovely to go and see the now closed sugar mills as well as the impressive plantation houses.

Pleasant day's tour with Cubatur, as the train was not working. Stop offs at the mirador (good view out to sea & across valley), very interesting haciendas & plantations etc. They organized a very pleasant local lunch at a family home.

Hi, While going with the train is definitely an option, I opted to hire a taxi in Trinidad for some three hours at the cost of 10 Euros. We passed by the mirador with a great view onto the Valle de los Ingenious before... More
