The July / August vacation is here!  The big question?  How are you going to spend the next 60+ days on the beautiful islands of Trinidad and Tobago? Here are our picks of the best experiences to make your vacation awesome.

Covigne Gorge, Trinidad
1Covigne River Gorge Tour
Discover a hidden gorge in the Tucker Valley forest, Trinidad, which was carved out of the mountain by a river flowing through an old cocoa and nutmeg plantation.
This hidden gem located deep in the Tucker Valley in Trinidad was carved out of the mountain rock by a branch of the Cuesa River which winds through an old cocoa and nutmeg plantation. A popular hiking destination, the trip to the gorge can take just about an hour as you walk through the undergrowth and then up along the river bed. The wet rock reflecting the sunlight that slips through the forest canopy above makes for a spectacular sight as the surrounding thick greenery combines to produce rich shimmery gold-green hues. But the real treat is at the end of the trail where an invigorating rope-assisted climb up the rock face brings you to a waterfall and plunge pool where you can take a revitalising swim in the cool fresh mountain water. Along the way you are constantly intrigued as you encounter a variety of insects including caterpillars, spiders and ants. But best of all, you are occasionally greeted by emperor butterflies that flutter by as you trek to your destination.
