Details

THIS TOUR IS ONLY FACILITATED FROM MONDAY TO FRIDAY


Welcome to the "Petroleum Capital" of Trinidad and Tobago where unlike the Northern parts, Southern Trinidad is the hub that mainly supplies oil, gas and gas related products.

Our first visit in the South land is at a small bustling town of "Princess Town" where here holds significant bits of history dating back in the 1880's.

Our second visit is south of Princess Town, through the historical "Company Villages" to a coastal village where Christopher Columbus landed when he visited Trinidad. Moruga Village is historical as far as local folklore is concerned. More interesting historical facts about this village will be revealed.

Our third visit is to very little known "Rancho Quemado" in a little village known as Palo Seco. We first drive through beautiful villages of Penal, Siparia, Santa Flora and Los Bajos where general information will be revealed about each village. At Rancho Quemado, we will be treated to educational tours of their cocoa estate, aquaculture, epiculture.....a bit of walking along their nature trails, and they even boast a mini zoo.

Our forth visit is at the southern coast beach "Los Iros Bay" which is the Columbus Channel. At this beach, nearby Venezuela is clearly in sight. A nice walk along the seashore is well deserved. At Los Iros Bay, here is also an ideal place to eat our tasty local lunch what will be purchased at a nearby small restaurant. From the beach, we drive on to the little known "Los Iros Mud Volcanoes" that is neatly hidden in a small forest not far from where we park.

Our fifth visit is at "San Francique Village", located in popular "ERIN". We visit a Roman Catholic Church that is situated on a hill directly overlooking the village and the far off Columbus Channel. Beautiful panoramic view from here. When we depart Erin Village, we drive through Buenos Ayres Village onto Cap-De-Ville Village and the borough of Point Fortin that is actually the oil and gas Capital of Southern Trinidad.

Our sixth visit is at well known "La Brea Pitch Lake" where we enjoy a guided tour at part of the 100 acre lake. This Pitch Lake contains the largest natural deposit of asphalt in the world. This tour promises to be very educational from start to finish.

Our seventh and final visit is at the well known "San Fernando Hill" that is actually 192 meters. The aerial views here is simply beautiful. The Gulf of Paria, Venezuela, the Northern range and the Central Plains are all in great sight for you to enjoy and also bring the perfect end of an enthralling tour.
