Trinidad's main industry is tobacco processing. The older parts of town are well preserved as the Cuban tourism industry sees benefit from tour groups. In contrast, some parts of town outside the non-tourist areas are very run down and in disrepair, especially in the centre. Outside the city lies the Ancón peninsula with a long sandy beach (Playa Ancón) and several resort hotels. Ancón was one of the first new resorts to be developed in Cuba following the 1959 revolution.
