Maracas Waterfall Adventure

June 30 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

On Sunday 30th June, 2019 we visit the towering Maracas Waterfall.
Maracas Waterfall with an altitude of 91.5 metres is Trinidad’s highest waterfall. Not to be confused with Maracas Bay/Beach on the North Coast, the falls is located in the Maracas St.Joseph Valley and the source comes from the southern foothills of Mt. El Tucuche. Its close proximity to Port-of-Spain makes the waterfall a favorite tourist destination.

The journey on foot will take thirty minutes, and the uphill path crosses two little streams.

Traditionally, the fall’s is a place for spiritual worship and lining the route are melted candles, flowers, and fruits.
The cascade encircled by giant boulders that add brilliance to the colorful scenery. The spurts of water cascading on the rock form a shower-like spray that is cool and exhilarating.

After taking in the beauty of the cascade we shall divert midway on the trail and explore a small pathway on the right where on the river are two Jacuzzi–like pools.
