Full-Day City Tour, Maracas Bay & Caroni Bird Sanctuary

by Island Experiences Duration 8h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$145

Spend a day exploring Trinidad with a tour across the island from Port of Spain, along the northern coast to Maracas Bay, and on a flat-bottomed boat in the Caroni Bird Sanctuary. Sample Caribbean treats—including pineapple chutney—and marvel at the glorious coloration of flocks of the scarlet ibis.

Get picked up from your hotel and begin with a tour of Port of Spain. Admire the many historic buildings downtown before arriving at the Queen's Park Savannah. This massive, 200-acre (81-ha) park is lined by exotic trees, colonial-style mansions, and the handsome structure that houses the National Academy of the Performing Arts.

Drive on the North Coast Road to admire views of the Caribbean, and stop to snack on fresh pineapple chutney and a sweets made from sugarcane molasses. Settle in at Maracas Bay, a sandy beach framed by mountain rainforests and dotted with coconut trees. Walk, swim, or relax on the beach, and even get the chance to taste a crispy shark sandwich prepared with home-made bread (not included in cost).

Continue to the Caroni Bird Sanctuary. This wetland, home to a stunning variety of bird species, covers much of Trinidad's western coast. Board a flat-bottomed boat to explore the waterways, marvelling at oysters clinging to mangrove roots, non-poisonous snakes wrapped around the branches overhead, and—most impressively—the vibrant scarlet ibis. Watch flocks of these red birds soaring against the sunset and settling into the mangroves before you head back to your hotel in the evening.
