We tried to do this but found it impossible. Ended up using a taxi.

So there is no other way?

Do you remember how much a taxi might cost?

i second gengen ...

took train from Havana to Santiago de Cuba 2 years ago - a most interesting experience that gave a whole new meaning to the word interesting.

Be prepared for an adventure.

THere is also a Viazul bus connenction at Santa Clara to Trinidada with the Viazul bus from Varadero thats not listed on their website.

Believe it leaves Santa Clara around 130am and gets into Trinidad about 230pm.

Btw, the train station is almost at the other end of town from the Interprovincial bus terminal in Santa Clara

yes the bus leaves Varadero about 820am.

Goes via Santa Clara and Cienfuegos to Trinidad.

There' is (or was?) also also a 24 pax afternoon bus that goes by a more direct route bypassing Santa Clara, but dont know if it goes via or bypasses Cienfuegos.

This same 24 pax bus bus leaves Trinidad in the morning again bypassing Santa Clara with teh afternoon bus which leaves at 430pm or so goes via Cienguegos and Santa Clara (believe it was there around 630pm) arriving back in Varadero around 9-930pm

keep in mind my info is 18 months out of date (last time I was in Varadero) so may have changed since.
