Trinidad – A Time Travel

Trinidad is a 500-year old Cuban city warped in time. Walking around, in narrow streets covered in cobbled stones, I didn’t find it difficult to convince myself that I was living and breathing in the past.

Time travel, in Trinidad, is indeed, possible.

Try to wake up early–before everyone does–and walk around the empty streets and you’ll find yourself losing in its morning silence, between long queues of multi-coloured houses, punctuated by narrow intersections. Classic 1950’s cars sit idly, waiting to exhale. The sounds of the horses’ hooves running about is music to your ears.




When the first rays of the sun glisten through, the painted houses dazzle and come alive. Their colours are slowly becoming bold like permanent rainbows God had installed to keep the city gloriously fabulous!

As the locals starts their daily chores, the roosters crow incessantly like trying to piss off the sleepy heads under their sheets. And before you know it, the irksome sounds of cars and motorcycles–and the appalling amount of fumes they vent–awake you from your time travel.

And just like that, in a blink of an eye, you’re back in the present-day world.

The cobble-stoned streets are good for walking but never for taking a pedicab or taxi. It’s going to be bumpy on a transport.

  • I think this is the kind of city I’d love to walk in miles and miles. Pretty interesting.

      Fred,
      You’ll love it there. If you’re tired of it, you can just go to the beach, Playa Ancon.

  • Nice photos, as usual.

  • I like how you capture the streets with colourful houses. It must be like walking on a rainbow! 🙂

  • Is two days enough here?

    • TheSojourner

      Hey Ranier,
      I stayed there for 2 days and a half and I’ve done everything I wanted to do and see.
