The fascinating Mud Volcanoes are located in Piparo. I visited these volcanoes a few years aback and as I recall my experience it was wonderful. The drive was also long but it was worth it because I had never seen a mud volcano before. There are more than one mud volcanoes on this location some may appear to be small... More

This is a site to behold. An active volcano (mud), but quite some distance from port of spain. It took me 1.5 hours from port of spain with a guide. The mud is said to have healing properties - I am surprised that it is not marketed to tourists and spas locally.

My review comes not from a visit but from the experience of living through the amazingingly terrifying yet magnificent act of nature. This is the village where I grew up and which I had to leave in the aftermath of the eruption. I was awakened in the wee hours of the morning by rumbling sounds eminating from the volcano. It...

As a long time resident of this tiny hamlet in Trinidad, I was amazed to find all the references to my small village all over the internet. It is a small town with simple people living a simple almost archaic existence. There is nothing to do there unless you live there. There is the former drug baron DOle Chadee's residence... More
