    Trinidad by foot

    by Saringuis Written Jan 10, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Trinidad is a very small town which is best explored by foot. The old center is a pedestrian zone so you can walk almost carelessly. If you want to visit places right outside the center, there is a large amount of (coco) taxi and cycle carriges. Don’t forget to bargan the asking price for you transportation too!

    Particular cars are not always the best way

    by Saringuis Written Jan 10, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Going to Trinidad by private car might not be the best option. The particular rides aren’t really cheaper then the bus and because it’s illegal to get a ride with them, you can’t make the driver stop wherever you want to enjoy the view . Right before the enterance of Trinidad there is often police checking the cars entering town. Your illegal driver might then dump you on the side of the road and ride off at high speed, leaving you wondering what the hell just happened… This is real, people!

    Old and New Street Names!

    by ainsleigh Updated Dec 30, 2007

    After the revolution, many Cuban cities and towns changed the names of their streets to honor people who were integral to the revolution's success. Trouble is, in Trinidad, there is a major focus on the town's historical heritage so many maps and guide books will have the old names. We felt they were used sort of interchangeably.

    New names --> Old names

    Antonio Maceo --> Gutierrez
    Jose Marti --> Jesus Maria
    Simon Bolivar --> Desengano
    Camilo Cienfuegos --> Santo Domingo
    Fidel Claro --> Angarilla
    Ernesto Valdes Munoz --> Media Luna
    Fernando Echerri--> Cristo
    Jesus Menendez --> Alameda
    Lino Perez --> San Procopio
    Piro Guinart --> Boca
    Francisco Gomez Toro --> Pena
    Frank Pais --> Carmen
    Gustavo Izquierdo --> Gloria
    Juan Manuel Marquez --> Amargura
    Ruben Martinez Villena --> Real
    Santiago Escobar --> Olvido

    well there wasn't much traffic, but the road was surfaced with large river pebbles. these have to be the bumpiest surfaced roads in the world, with the exception of Burma.
