Port of Spain City TourOften referred to as the Capital of the Caribbean, this tour offers to the visitor, over a dozen wonders of rich European Architectural History, built in the early 1900’s, which one would hardly find anywhere else in this part of the world. Seven of them you can find together around the Queens’ Park Savannah. A rich diverse culture, a cosmopolitan society, a people living in harmony you must experience to believe. A visit to the museum is a must or a stroll through the well-kept parks or an eco walk through the oldest Botanical Gardens in the Western Hemisphere will certainly make your stay enjoyable and educational. But that is not all. Your tour ends at the Lady Young Lookout where you can see the capital from up in the air, and once the weather permits, we will see a bit of Venezuela of which we were once part of. This tour is a must.

Port of Spain City Saddle Maracas Drive

Tropical Splendor is at its best. This tour commences with a drive around the city and highlights all the main points of interest, including the architectural buildings, the Botanical Gardens and the museum. After you have seen the City from up in the air, the drive continues through sub-urban villages on our way to the “ Saddle “, a valley subdued between two hills. For most times of the day, the Saddle also known as Santa Cruz, is peaceful and very cool, ideally suited for the successful cocoa and coffee plantations. You may just be lucky to see someone at the side of the road to show you inside a cocoa pod and offer you a sample of the beans inside. As we continue our drive to the North Coast to the beautiful sandy Maracas beach, we can’t help but to stop and take in this breathtaking view of the 18 holes Moka Golf Course from up in the air. This is a refreshing eco drive through the mountains. The birds, the butterflies, the flowers including the national flower the Chaconia, even the breathtaking Caribbean Sea can all be seen along the way. Research has shown that one in ten visitors return to Maracas Beach not only to suntan and bathe in our warm waters, but also to enjoy the freshly prepared bake and shark. Return to Port of Spain through Maraval that is the other side of the Saddle.

October 1912 and set out their monastic life second to none.

Caroni Bird SanctuaryBreathtaking is the only way to describe this sight as thousands of our Scarlet Ibis lit the skies as they come in to roost late evening after being out all day feeding in the country’s second largest swamp, the Caroni Swamp. This swamp is a very fine example of our eco wetlands and is protected by law. The Scarlet Ibis, the national bird of Trinidad, of which there is a population of over 10000, has been considered an endangered species since 1962, and is protected by law. There are at least three examples in this natural habitat that reflect the same colours as that of our national flag, namely Red, White, and Black. Over 180 species of birds have been recorded, and from day to day, one can see other fauna such as Cook’s tree boas, caimans, and anteaters. The slow sail inside is on a flat bottom uncovered boat guided by experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly guides. This tour is guaranteed to have you gasping for words when the blue skies suddenly turn red, as you sit in the boat waiting for them to come in to roost for the evening.

North Coast TourThe Pitch Lake is considered by many to be another natural wonder of the world and certainly one of the strangest tourist attractions at that. After being excavated, once time permits, you can actually stand there and see the dug area being replenished. Used years ago to caulk ships, today it is exported around the world to build roads. It is located in the southern part of the island in an area called La Brea, which is well within the oil belt. It is soft in some areas and hard in others, and so there are always experienced and very knowledgeable tour guides to guide you along the way. On our return to Port – of – Spain, we use another route, which highlights the customs and religious practices of the Hindu community. Two short stops are made in Waterloo to see the Siewdass Sadhu Temple built in the sea and the 85ft. Hanuman Murti built by Indians of India. They are less than ten minutes apart from each other. Time permitting we can also see the Lion’s House in Chaguanas, which belongs to the Capildeo family that Sir Vidia Naipaul immortalized in his book “The House for Mr. Biswas”. A combination of these tours is for the adventurous and the inquisitive mind.
