Cayo Macho is a nature reserve off the coast of Cuba not far from Trinidad. It has only one old guy living there to look after the endanged lizards, which are quite tame and will happily run over your feet. It takes around 45 minutes to walk around the island, but watch out for the stretches of path covered with baby crabs.
Catch a ferry from from Trinidad.
To visit the valley just outside Trinidad you can take a taxi-tour for 20 cuc or the train (which doesn't run everyday). It's beautiful.
In Trinidad stay at Ruth's, she is very friendly gives you huge portions if you have dinner there.
