For the first time in my life I visited the Gasparee Caves in Gasparre Island, Chaguaramas. It is an experience worth effort and for the price, once cannot go wrong. I couldn'r believe that there was such an intiguing cave sysytem so close to the city of Port of Spain. To get there you have to take a boat from the CDA jetty and travel across. Your fees include a guide who, I think Mr. Gordon was very helpful. But seriously to the Caves: one would be amazed at the natural treasure of these caves. It a nice hike so you better be moderately fit. When you get to the cave you decend like 200 steps down into the grotto to view the underwater pool and stalagmite and stalagtire formations. In the main caves, you will se some very interestings and intriguing shapes carved into the limestone. These include the phantom's bedroom, the kissing couple, the starfish and the face up to the roof. The system of sinkholes gives a unique lighting to the cave.
Overall I found the total experience: the boat ride, the hike to and from and the visit to the cave to be a very good ecperience. And heres the best part: you can do this adventure in 1/2 day give or take and it will not ocost a familiy of 5 not $500. I trust that going forward, the CDA would ensure preservation of this location and encourage more visitors, both local and foriegn.
You can walk with you cooler and snacks since there are adequate facilities for the public.
