Trinidad: Pitch Lake and Chaguanas Sightseeing Tour

Highlights

  • Explore the less-traveled region of Central Trinidad
  • View the bright pink Hindu temple and huge statue of Lord Hanuman
  • Purchase fresh produce from markets and bazaars in Chaguanas
  • Visit Pitch Lake, the world's largest natural asphalt deposit

Description

Journey to Central Trinidad to marvel at the sticky tar of Pitch Lake, shop at the lively markets of Chaguanas, and admire the many Hindu temples indicative of the region's East Indian population. This tour gives you a chance to learn more about the heart of Trinidad as you explore its communities. After being picked up from your hotel, you will travel through Central Trinidad's flat plains and rolling hills. Take in the country life as you pass through island villages, and stop for a drink or some fresh fruit from a local stand before you arrive in Chaguanas and get the chance to visit a bustling produce market and lively bazaar. At the local temple complex, you will get to encounter the towering statue of the Hindu god Hanuman, the largest outside of India. The bright and eccentric pink color of the temple itself reminds many of a wedding cake. Many Hindu temples and prayer flags can be spotted in the region, thanks to Central Trinidad's large East Indian population. You will receive some suggestions for lunch and some free time before you head onward to Pitch Lake. The surreal surface of the lake appears like elephant skin, but is actually the largest natural deposit of asphalt in the world. Explore with your guide as you learn about the sticky tar lake, which is said to be nearly 250 feet (75 meters) deep. After this unique natural experience, you will be transported back to your accommodation in Port of Spain.
