Pitch Lake Picnic

July 15 @ 7:30 am - 6:00 pm

On Sunday 15th July join us as we visit the Pitch Lake, the one of Trinidad’s natural wonders . It is the largest commercial deposit of natural asphalt in the world – one of only three in known existence – and holds approximately 10 million tonnes of asphalt.

Lets walk on the living surface with its hissing and burping sounds. Small pools of water form on it during the rainy season and you can bathe in them. They contain high levels of sulfur and villagers claim they are the fountains of life, good for curing anything from skin conditions to joint pain.

We spend the time lounging and rejuvenating in this unique spectacle.
