Due to the fiascos of our tour organisation, instead of spending time in forests and waterfalls, we spent the day in the town of Trinidad de Cuba,  This turned out to be a good thing.

      Very fortunate. I don’t think the “wilderness experience” we missed was going to turn out to be that special. Conversely, I didn’t appreciate the historical significance of Trinidad de Cuba when we were there.
