This is a feature tour of all tours of Trinidad. Pick up from wherever you are staying and we drive to the very historical Borough of Arima where from here, we drive into the countryside up the Northern Range where beautiful views of the various valleys are seen. A couple of stops are made where photography is excellent.
- Our first official stop off is in a very quaint village
of “Morne La Croix” where we have a 3 course local meal at a very cozy home of the Richmond’s. Time permits, we can take a tour of the beautiful flower garden maintained by Mrs. Richmond.
Drive time from P.O.S. to Morne La Croix: 3 hours
Duration at Morne La Croix (lunch & socialising): 1.5 hours
- Departure from Morne La Croix, our second official stop is in another very small village of “Avocar Village” where we park by Pops and we then enjoy an short, but very interesting walk to the Marianne River that will eventually lead us to the popular “Grand Fond Waterfalls”, popularly known locally as "Avocat Waterfalls" where swimming here is memorable. Rating of hike (2) easy.
Drive time to Avocar Village: 1 hour
IMPORTANT: At Avocar Village, we change our attire into hiking outfit....that is, short trousers that can get wet, shoes/sandals that can get wet, extra
jersey that can also get wet. Our change of clothing will be left in our vehicle.

- Our third official stop off is at the well-known “Maracas Bay” where having the world famous “Bake and Shark Sandwich at Richards” is certainly a MUST, together with a cold beverage. After that sumptuous meal, once time permits, we can have a short sea bath or even a walk along the very sandy beach front admiring the mountains that surround the bay hereby making here extremely scenic indeed.
