Trinidad - Ancon
35km - Light
It is nice cycling ride along the sea shore and a great beach distraction from the colonial city of Trinidad. It is not long with 30 km and lots of rest.
Starting point can be the ecological lodge Ma Dolores in Trinidad.
Leaving the hotel, turn right in direction of the city centre.
Before crossing the bridge, observe the dirt road to the left. In a nice hike you can reach a beautiful waterfall in the mountains of Topes de Collantes park from here.
But we continue cycling and arriving in the centre we keep to the right with the cemetery on our side. We go straight until we come at an intersection with signs pointing to the right to La Boca.
After a few km you are cycling into a small village with a beach, La Boca.
It is a nice spot but we continue cycling along the same road. A few km further you arrive at the first beach resort, the 3 star Costasur.
To get an even better beach continue cycling and you will arrive at Ancon beach. The hotels Ancon and Trinidad del Mar (both 4 star) are located here. In hotel Ancon you can slip in and enjoy the beautiful sand white shore.
There is also a marina nearby.
To drive back to Trinidad take the road in front of Ancon hotel to the left and keep it on. You have lagoon water on your right.
At the T-junction take right and continue cycling till you join the road between Casilda and Trinidad just after the rail road crossing. Take left and continue cycling the remaining 3 km to Trinidad.
Here you find a little bit up the hill the 3 star Las Cuevas hotel. To get back to Ma Dolores follow the signs that lead to Cienfuegos. You will pass by the hotel 2 km outside of Trinidad.
