We took the tourist train up the valley from Trinidad and realy wished we hadn't. The countryside is pretty enough without being anything special and, as an event, the trip on the train is completely underwhelming. The trip costs 15 CUC per person and, if...More

You take an old train along the valley and see great scenery and local villages. Lots of people selling poorly made souvenirs at exhorbitant prices all along the route. There are more and more tourist attractions like this in Cuba and things will get worse...More

It's an attraction that lots of people would do it, there is a lace market there. You walked up to the top and have a view of the place. It's interesting.

Wonderful place that we visited by horse thanks to our host in casa font. Worth the money, nice place with a bath in a natural swimming pool, where we unfortunately not alone but this was still fine

We went with "Eddy" of Casa Elda y Roberta. He has his own little taxi. Contact through his wife Mercedes: mdelcarmen@infomed.sld.cu
Hola, Sevmar queria preguntarte, que precio tiene el tren y donde es que se paga? Yo queria agarrarlo pero si como dices es tan carro y no vale la pena, tal vez no. Gracias por la informacion, Saludos.
