Trinidad Diving

Where is it? Cuba’s most colonial city, Trinidad, is on Cuba’s south central shore about 80 km from the city of Cienfuegos.

Getting there: The Trinidad airport does not receive international flights, so many passengers fly through Cienfuegos or make a domestic connection through Havana or Varadero. Land transfers are available or you might consider a rental car to maximize your local exploration possibilities.

Accommodation: Ancon, Trinidad del Mar, Costa Sur.

The Scuba Diving: The area is especially characterized by high medians and narrow channels that form tunnels in some areas. Dive center is the Cayo Blanco International Dive Center located in the Marina on the Ancon Peninsula.
