Trinidad North Coast Tour

1 review
The scenic journey along the north coast of Trinidad is a nature lover's dream. Traverse through the lush rain forest as you head to Trinidad's most popular beach, Maracas Bay and continuing even further to Las Cuevas Bay and the picturesque village of Blanchisseuse. Spend some much needed time enjoying the sun, sea and sand at Las Cuevas Bay before returning to Maracas Bay to enjoy a local and scrumptious bake and shark lunch. A minimum of two persons per booking is required we do accommodate one person at an extra cost of 50 percent of the total cost

We really enjoyed our visit to this temple. An older gentleman and one of the caretakers of the temple took time to give us the history behind the place, he was so friendly. The grounds were virtually empty the day we went so it was nice to have the place to ourselves so to speak. Please be respectful and wear pants or long skirts, and don't take any pictures without asking first.

The Hanuman statue is certainly something to behold. I was told that this is the largest in the Western Hemisphere and second largest in the world. The statue towers over the yoga temple and is clearly visible from a distance as you approach. The statue of Hanuman is 26m tall (85ft). The statue was completed in 2001, and the new temple structure was completed in 2003. Both were designed and built by artisans from India. The temple itself is beautifully ornate and worth walking around to take in the craftsmanship of the whole building. I visited the temple and statue as part of a day trip with Sensational Tours and Transport, starting at Pitch Lake and working my way back to Caroni Swamp. The temple and statue are worth a visit, along with the Temple in the Sea, if you are heading south. But this may not be a “must see” for the average tourist. The temple was closed at the time of my visit, so I wasn’t able to go inside, however it is still free to walk around and look inside. While the statue certainly draws the attention, the intricate nature of the designs on the surrounding buildings almost surpass it in terms of intrigue.

This is along the way from the tar pit back towards PoS where you stop to take the boat on the swamp tour for the birds. You need about half an hour here. Key things to note - don't touch the flowers given this is a holy area within the initial gate, take off the shoes if you want to enter the temple, and bring some bread or crackers to feed the fish that come up to the shoreline to the right side of the temple (right side when facing it upon entering).

Very enjoyable. Can give monetary donations at each statue. Prayer and ask for what you want from specific gods and goddesses.

The Hanuman Statue was very impressive and I felt a feeling of reverance in its presence. I recommend going here if you get a chance while in Trinidad.
