Viazul [http://www.viazul.com/] buses have a three times a day service from Havana stopping at [[Cienfuegos]], and a daily service from [[Santiago de Cuba]] stopping at [[Holguin]], [[Camagüey]], and [[Sancti Spiritus]]. It costs 25CUC as of January 2016. There is also a service to/from [[Varadero]] stopping at [[Santa Clara (Cuba)|Santa Clara]] and Cienfuegos that is not listed on the Viazul website. It leaves Varadero at 7:30AM and returns from Trinidad at 2:25PM. Viazul and Cubanacan offer direct buses to/from [[Viñales]] as well. You buy Viazul tickets from the air conditioned office right in front of where the buses park, not from the Astro or local bus counters. Check the viazul website for up to date schedules.

Travel via taxi, specifically, unofficial taxis is also an effective way to travel to Trinidad, typically costing the same or slightly more than the price of a Viazul ticket per person if travelling in a full taxi e.g. 30CUC per person in Jan 2016. It is straightforward to find other travellers to share the taxi with, just go to the Plaza Vieja, find a driver, and try to ask other people hanging around in the area if they are looking to travel to the same destination as you. The taxi driver will also help. It shouldn't take you too long to find someone. You'll get there in less than half the time, and in much greater comfort. When traveling with children, you might find this the preferred method of travel.
