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.
