Another long weekend is on the way (Friday 13 October to Sunday 15 October) and the perennial question is asked again, “What can I do to enjoy the weekend?” Fortunately, there are always lots to do in Trinidad. Not sure what? Well here is our pick of some awesome experiences you can enjoy.
Okay, so the reason we have this long weekend in the first place is because Friday 13 October is a ‘one-off’ public holiday granted to celebrate the indigenous people of Trinidad and Tobago – you know…the Amerindians. Those great people who were here long before Columbus showed up. So why not partake in the many activities scheduled to celebrate their heritage and lifestyle. Check out the full list of activities here.
Every holiday is perfect for a visit to Gasparee Caves – a magnificent system of natural limestone caverns and caves on island of Gaspar Grande that you can safely walk through and explore. A tour to the caves is filled with a fun short boat ride to the island of Gaspar Grande, a short hike to the top of the cave and mystical descent 100 feet down into the caves. Sounds fun? Fortunately we have a tour scheduled on Friday 13 October. Come and enjoy – Book now
