Then we leave on our bikes towards the UNESCO world heritage site of Trinidad via the city of Cienfuegos. We arrive at dusk in Trinidad and are treated to a heroes welcome as we ride in, processing along the old cobbled streets to our quaint backstreet villa. After a cold beers or a quick rum you can take a walk into town to take some pictures but Ernesto propping up the bar giving cigar smoking lessons is often the most popular activity!

The next day starts with a visit to the Che Guevara Mausoleum and Armoured train on the way to the island of Cayo Santa Maria. This island is part of the Jardines del Rey archipelago just off the north coast of Cuba and is joined to the mainland by a private causeway, with special permission from the police we are allowed to stop off after joining the causeway for some pictures.

There’s always time for a spot of sunbathing!
