Playa la Boca - Trinidad (Sancti Spiritus)

Playa La Boca offers charming and tranquil surroundings and lots to check out....

 Lazy dazing in and around La Boca...

• Rent a bicycle and spend the day lazing at Playa Ancon only 7 kms from La Boca.   This is a  beautiful white sand beach and is an easy bicycle ride. Along the way stop for a mojito at a beach bar or a dip in the emerald sea at one of  the many little playitas along the way. The views og the mountains are mesmerizing.

•Topes de Collantes (20 km from Trinidad) is a small village in the Mountain range of the Escambray. Taxi will drop you off at this National Park and return later after your hike down into that waterfall where a cool pool of fresh water awaits..

• Valle de los Ingenios (7 km from Trinidad) is also a worldwide inheritance proclaimed by UNESCO and has a unique landscape. In this valley there are also the ruins of the talents of azucar, old houses of slaves and an ancient 44 meter tower. There is a steam railroad that leaves Trinidad towards the Valley of the Talents. This excursion that passes through the Escambray Mountain range.
