Explore the Trinidad

Entertainment or Unique Tours: 

Trinidad is a nightlife hotspot, filled with nightclubs, bars, and cocktail lounges. Whether you want to lose yourself in the energetic music of the dance club or you want to meet locals at the neighborhood bar, there is no shortage of opportunity in the cities of Trinidad. Some of the best “liming” spots (a.k.a. places to hang out) are in the capital, Port of Spain.

 

Queens Park Savannah

 

Queen’s Park Savannah is a park in the capital city, Port of Spain. Known locally as simply “the Savannah,” it is the city’s largest open space and also the largest roundabout in the world.

 

It occupies about 260 acres of level land, and the distance around the perimeter is about 2.2 miles. Originally part of the St. Ann’s Sugar Estate, the Savannah, now owned by the state, is Port of Spain’s main outdoor recreational park. It is also home to some of Trinidad’s major attractions which can be found around its perimeter such as the the the Botanic Gardens, the Emperor Valley Zoo, the Hollows, the National Museum, the National Academy for Performing Arts , as well as the Magnificent 7 – a group of early 20th century buildings are located.

 

These include the Queen’s Royal College; the residences of the Anglican bishop (Hayes Court) and the Roman Catholic archbishop, Mille Fleurs, Roomor Whitehall (once the office of the prime minister) and the majestic Stollmeyer’s Castle. On weekends and afternoons, the Savannah comes to life and is the destination for sports enthusiasts, health fanatics, joggers, family picnics and persons seeking to indulge in the sumptuous local street food served by vendors. It is also the main location of the country’s Carnival festival.

 

La Brea Pitch Lake

 

Located in La Brea in southwest Trinidad, the La Brea Pitch Lake is the largest commercial deposit of natural asphalt in the world – one of only three in known existence – and holds approximately 10 million tonnes of asphalt.

 

Its asphalt has been used to pave roads and airport runways around the world, including the roadway in front of Buckingham Palace in England, La Guardia Airport in New York, the Lincoln Tunnel which connects New York to New Jersey, as well as numerous roads in several countries.

 

The Pitch Lake is a popular tourist attraction. It also features a small museum and visitor center where official tour guides can be found to safely escort visitors onto the solid surface areas of the lake. During the rainy season pools of water settle on the surface forming sulfur rich ponds which are thought to have cleansing properties when you bathe in them

 

Persons can also enjoy the flora and fauna around such as water rose, nymph lilies, bird of paradise, hummingbirds, kingfishers and sandpipers.

 

Lovers of birds can get a spot with the Caroni Bird Sanctuary Day and Night Tour. This all day tour takes you through rainforests and mangrove forests to showcase the beautiful biodiversity of the island. You’ll get to see the stunning scarlet ibis, the national bird, among many others.
