Trinidad for Cruise Lovers
By Viator, October 2013
Touring Port of Spain is a great option for those who want to learn more about Trinidad and see its famous historical sites like the “Red House” (the impressive House of Parliament) and get their bearings on this bustling Caribbean city. Most cruisers tend to use Port of Spain as just that, however – a port, and head off to see the island’s Caribbean treasures once they touch down. Seeing Trinidad’s Highlands and visiting the famous Maracas Beach is a popular way to see some of the island and get some beach time in, while others skip to Buccoo Reef – Trinidad’s coral reef gardens, which are famous for their abundant sea life and incredibly clear waters. The Asa Wright Nature Center is another example of Trinidad’s amazing biological diversity and this world-renowned nature center gives visitors a hands-on experience with Trinidad’s exotic birds like the tufted coquette and the Ruby topaz hummingbird.
