About  Club Amigo Ancon

Hotel Club Amigo Ancon is a great place to stay for anyone wanting an all-inclusive beach holiday on a budget, particularly if they want easy access to the historic town of Trinidad.

Ancon is perfect for beach lovers & you will be spoiled by breathtaking sunsets, idyllic stretches of white sand & warm azure waters that are great for snorkelling. You will also find wonderful views of the Sierra Escambray Mountains. This may be a budget all-inclusive resort but it is clean, comfortable & great value, given such natural beauty on your doorstep.

Following renovation, the modern sections at Ancon hotel are much more bright & cheerful than the austere, communist fascia of the resort’s older parts; the whole place is like Cuba in microcosm. The food is good, though the buffet restaurant can be chaotic at breakfast. There are also Italian, Seafood & Cuban a la carte restaurants, which are much more relaxed & provide a good variety. The refreshing drinks at the pool bar are also highly recommended at any time of day.

In addition to the daytime & evening entertainment programme at Club Amigo Ancon, guests can play tennis or relax around the large pool. On the beach, you can try non-motorised watersports, such as snorkelling & catamarans, or simply walk for miles along the soft white sand, where you will find no shortage of marine life in the shallows.

Club Amigo Ancon is a good all-inclusive hotel which, while not easy on the eye on places, provides good food & drink as well as a warm welcome. You will find outstanding value & everything you need for a relaxing beach holiday, with the markets & nightlife of Trinidad just minutes away.

Restaurante El Jigüe

Set in the Plazuela de Jigüe, a tiny plaza shaded by one tree, is this colorful and historic restaurant (dating from 1720). An elegant Colonial-style restaurant, probably the best of Trinidad's state-run restaurants, El Jigüe (hee-gweh) is a brightly lit, nearly formal dining room in a handsome, airy colonial house. Its bright interior has high ceilings, chandeliers, and landscapes hung on white walls. The menu ranges from bistec of grilled pork to lobster in a red sauce (enchilado de langosta). The specialty, pollo al jigüe, is a Cuban version of chicken cacciatore, which comes in a clay pot with pasta and cheese and is served with salad and coffee.

La Santísima Trinidad

Although the city's cathedral was consecrated in 1892, the building took the better part of the 19th century to complete (it was built to replace the 17th-century church that was destroyed by a hurricane). The structure shows a neoclassic architectural style. Its interesting interior is replete with a dozen hardwood altars that date from the early 20th century and various colonial icons. Besides it preserves the famous Christ of Vera Cruz, and an altar – the only one of this kind in Cuba devoted to the Virgin of Mercy.
