Paria Bay Camp Out

July 27 @ 8:00 am - July 28 @ 5:00 pm

Hikers Get ready for another camp! This time we head to the exotic Paria Bay!
On Satuday 27th- Sunday 28th July, 2019, come enjoy a mini staycation and unwind from the hectic beat of everyday life.

Hike through lush forest to the secluded turtle nesting beach.
The journey is three (3) hours long one way (walking) that treks across dirt roads, transcends the Caribbean Sea where picturesque views and photos can be taken on the “Coconut Tree in the Sea” and the “Church Rock”…not to mention the evergreen rainforest that presents the steep leg cramping “Mount Kilimanjaro”.
The hike is rated 7/10 (difficult).

Camp under the stars on the warm sand of Paria Bay! Sit in the moonlight roasting marshmallows while listening to the crashing waves of the Atlanic Ocean all being warmed by the raging bonfire.

At the campsite Paria offers you a little of everything; a cool river, beach and waterfall attractions to bask in.
