The Aperitif & Digestif Trek
Aperitif Trek: Point Gourde & Digestif Trek: Tucker Valley
Plan to have a day with a difference. Firstly take a hike, before sitting down to an appetizing breakfast. Take a cool drive from there, then begin an interesting, historical walk to culminate the day with cuisine at an open air restaurant. Capture breathtaking views of the Gulf of Paria and birders can spot lovely varieties of birds in the forest and surroundings.
Journey to Chaguaramas and start at "Point Gourde" along a wide, clear trial and savour occasional panoramic views of Gulf of Paria. On the main trail proceed to "Water and Sewerage Station". At the top of a platform admire the great views of historical "5 Islands".
Towards the Gulf, get the distinct view of limestone rock formation of the land. On the sea shore, focus on more beautiful views of "Prison Island- Carrera Island" and neighboring "Kronstadt Island".
Venture into a cave which is believed to have been built by American Armed Forces during World War II. This overall trek takes about 1 hour 45 minutes. This presents adequate time to head on to "Sails" in Chaguaramas to enjoy an appetizing breakfast.
Drive through Tucker Valley on to "Macqueripe Bay" and spend a short time at the beach. Digest a meal, before heading on to "Samaan Park"
to begin the second leg of this trek. Walk on
flat road into forest until the terrain leads
up a gradual incline, along well maintained surroundings. This trail is a circuit.
Now depending on the time this walk is completed, there are two options : Explore another trek or drive to tour other areas of Chaguaramas before going to "Crews Inn" to dine at "Lighthouse Restaurant" where the cuisine is excellent.
