It all started at Buenavista resort in Cayo Santa Maria, when I was picked up by a bus by Gaviota. We went though Caibarien, then through the countryside. Our guide told us that Cuba's national tree is the Royal Palm which I didn't know. There were plantations of these trees. Then we drove through the mountains to the City of Sancti Spiritus. We stopped a the Central Square and visited for 10 minutes, to continue on to Trinidad. Its a beautiful colonial city with old houses. We ate at the Plaza Mayor Restaurant. There was a buffet which was good and Cuban musicians to entertain us. After lunch we walked through the streets on to the market. At this market there were beautiful souvenirs of Trinidad to buy, as this is a Unesco designed city for architecture. We had the opportunity to take many pictures. We had two hours of free time to visit. I was surprised to see how colorful this City is by its archetecture. Then off to visit the museum which was beautiful and the colorful Central Square. The guide gave us alot of informations all along the trip. All in all I would recommend this excursion for people travelling in this area of Cuba. I find it is not to be missed.

Even if you are not interested in architecture or buildings, this is one interesting place to visit. I was amazed to see the very primitive but exact measuring devices; and joists used to construct everything from furniture to massive buildings. An easy walk through of early architectural history that needs better preservation.

This is well worth a visit, demonstrating Colonial style architecture. It has a beautiful courtyard. BUT, wait until you see the shower. Our modern ones usually only spray from above, BUT, this one sprays from above, each side AND below!!! Now that is a shower!
