Hi there!!! I am the owner and founder of Gio's Cuba Photo Tours. My friends call me Gio and I have been a local guide since 2012.But I have been living here since 2001.So,I know every inch of my beautiful city and I would love to share it with you. Come with me and meet my friends and neighbors as we explore Trinidad together from the inside. As a local history buff, I am in a unique position to conduct tours the city of Trinidad. My goal is for you to leave with a better understanding of what it really means to be Cuban.

About the Tour

In this experience, you will witness and actively participate in the process of roasting, grinding and brewing coffee just as our ancestors did and even today the Cuban peasants do.

What does the experience include ?:

  • Fresh Cuban and organic locally harvested coffee.
  • Sweetened with raw organic Cuban sugar or Cuban honey.
  • A travel gift of organic Cuban coffee.


For this, we will use coffee harvested in the neighboring mountains of the Escambray Trinitario . The stove that we will use to roast the coffee beans will be a wood stove, then we will proceed to grind the roasted coffee beans in a hand mill or in an artisanal pestle.
Finally we will taste the authentic Cuban coffee when we finish straining it in a cloth strainer.

While we are participating in the experience, I will tell you how coffee got to the Escambray mountains and also how almost a century ago my family came here to these mountains from Asturias, Spain.

The Experience will take place in my house , the same meeting place.
Although most of the time we will be in the patio, where I have the wood stove and the other utensils for roasting and grinding coffee, you can also go up to my roof to enjoy the beautiful view of the Santa Rosa Valley , the section smallest in the Valle de los Ingenios.

In our conversation we can also include other topics of the culture and history of Cuba.

Come with me and I guarantee you a time of authentic immersion in Cuban culture and history !!!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: I will be right at the portal of my house, which is the meeting point. My neighbors call me Choli. My address appears on Google Maps as Gio's Cuba Photo Tours.
