Trinidad is relatively easy to negotiate on foot as most
attractions are in the historic hub, centred around the Plaza
Mayor. It is a charming and generally very safe town for walkers
and getting around on foot somehow suits the ponderous pace of life
in Trinidad. Playa Ancón's beaches are serviced by
minibuses, usually from about 8am until dusk, running along Maceo.
Taxis are available, as are car rental agencies, though streets can
be somewhat labyrinthine and are known by different names which can
make driving confusing. You won't struggle to hire a horse-drawn
wagon either, should the urge strike you.
A novel way to explore the area is on the vintage steam train,
dating back to 1907, that travels to Valle de los Ingenios. The
train generally leaves Trinidad at about 9.30am and returns at 2pm.
There are also very popular horseback tours of the valley and many
people get around the area on bicycles. All in all, it is a small
and friendly place, and very easy to get around.
