This day of the cycle Tour cuba is resting in Trinidad. Passengers have the option of diving or swimming in the turquoise blue waters of Ancon Beach. Or just hang out on the beach with mojitos or coconut water. There is also a three-hour horse ride through the mountains of Trinidad led by our friend and expert rider Reinier.

Then there is the option Topes de collantes. Located approximately 19 km from Trinidad, it is a serious and challenging ascent of 8 km with an average of 15 or 20% slope. It is truly unforgiving and speaking from experience, rivals everything that Europe has to offer. It will climb 3,000 feet in about 10 km. If you like to climb challenge yourself, this is an essential experience for you. As it rises to Topes, the jungle’s vegetation becomes denser and the temperature drops slightly. There is nothing but lush jungle bordering its steep slopes and cattle around it.
Arriving at the top you will enjoy an excellent viewpoint with a truly Olympic view of the valley of the mills. You will see Trinidad in the distance along a wide strip of the southern Caribbean coast. Once our work is done, we descend (carefully!). We return to the accommodation to rest and relax on the beach to do the afternoon tour in Trinidad.
