Unique Experiences in Trinidad

Guide at Pitch Lake, Trinidad, West Indies

  • Driving a rental car with 300,000 kilometers on it (about 190,000 Miles).
  • Seeing an outdoor cremation during a Hindu Funeral near the “Temple in the Sea”.
  • Seeing what looks like a huge parking lot but in reality is the “Asphalt Lake” or “Pitch Lake”.
  • Watching the colorful Scarlet Ibis and Flamingos in the “Caroni Swamp”.
  • Viewing the humming birds at “ASA Wrights Nature Center”.
  • Wandering everywhere in the capital city, “Port of Spain”.
  • Eating fried Shark with baked bread called “Bake and Shark” at Richard’s at Maracas Bay Beach.
  • Having lunch in the “Woodbrook Restaurant District” after seeing a wonderful doctor and a dentist.

We will remember all these wonderful times. We are heading north to Grenada today. I will miss all the Trinidadians we met during our stay, especially at the boatyard, “Peake’s Yacht Services”.
