Caroni Lagoon National Park

One of the few popular natural attractions on Trinidad, the Caroni Lagoon National Park makes up for the lack of other parks by packing a intense and wildlife full experience in this one. Guests hoping to see animals up close will not be disappointed.

The most popular thing for visitors to the park is to take part in a boat tour down through the forest. As you slowly move down the river under a canopy of trees fill of birds, mammals, (and maybe a snake or two), you'll get an idea of how close you actually are to the rain-forests of South America.


Located in the vicinity of Port of Spain, 5.6 miles southeast of downtown Port of Spain, Caroni Lagoon National Park welcomes residents and visitors lodging in this section of Trinidad. Even if you are not staying in the vicinity, you are free to stop by to enjoy a great time. In case you're wondering, Chaguanas is to the southeast.

You shouldn't have any problem getting to Caroni Lagoon National Park, as it has its own exit off of Uriah Butler Highway that leaves south out of Port of Spain.
