Just astonishing colonial square! Beyond history the narrow paved streets of this old town will take you to colourful buildings, wonderful markets and craft shops and that's the right place to buy memories of all kinds. Any choice. Prices are not fixed. Then, happily tired...More

I loved the classic square, it is beautiful colonial city. The city is great with many nice AirBnB near the square. Many tours available to see the countryside. GREAT music at night.

Plaza Mayor is at the top of the hill surrounded by buildings with spectacular architectural design, church and entertainment. At night their is music nearby and it's the only WIFI spot in historic Trinidad. A lot of people on their phones.

Trust the restaurant touts: we followed two to find the best, but most hidden away restaurants. It's also a good place to just sit, listen to the unavoidable live music, and watch people coming and going
