For this adventure, we visit a magnificent cave on an island off the north-western coast of Trinidad.
On board our boat, we cruise from the marina in Chaguaramas past the smaller islands off the north-western peninsula for about ½ hour, before arriving on Gaspar Grande island. Here, we disembark for a short guided hike (easy to moderate, slightly uphill) to the cave entrance. We make a stop at the visitors’ center for a beautiful view (also bathroom stop). This island has a rich history — it was sacred to the indigenous people of Trinidad and was for many years a whaling station — and the caves are its crowning glory.
With our experienced guide we venture down into a system of limestone caves and caverns approximately 85 feet underground (via a sturdy metal stairway, with railings for extra support). There we experience the marvels of the natural formations created over thousands of years, with stunning stalagmites and stalactites in shapes of animals and people - even one that inspires the nickname “The Buddha”. We then descend to a deep mysterious tidal pool, open to the sky above called “The Blue Grotto”.
After our exciting adventure it’s now back to the boat. We enjoy another beautiful boat ride back to the marina.
