Being on a one day trip from a cruise ship we asked what we could do here. The answer for the 6 of us was take a taxi to Caroni. Se we did. The first great happening was that the taxi drivers were helpful and agreed to leave us for 3 hours and return to take us back to the ship or elsewhere. The second was that the Caroni Park was agreeable to give us foreigners their price for seniors which was sooooo small.
Into the park and immediately noticed how clean and well kept everything was. One of our group was a member of a rescue bird place in Western Australia and was bird crazy. He drooled at the wealth of species and spoke to them all lovingly. A keep pointed out the notice to not put fingers through holes in wire but when he saw our friend he realised that he had a connection and after a chat let him stroke and speak to the birds.
We walked through the aviary and had the birds alight on our arms shoulders and heads while they waited to be fed., We stayed in the aviary to watch and it was a glorious site.
Then to the bird show. The strangest we had ever seen with the type of birds not normally see doing turns in a show.
A relaxing cup of coffee and snack in the coffee shop and outside to our waiting taxis. A lovely time that had not been pre organised. This still gave a a few hours at the shopping area before the ship sailed. A Great Day
