Trinidad offers a range of hiking trails, with hikes varying in difficulty from level 1 to level 8. Covered by rain forest, the island's Northern Mountain Range is a favourite with hikers for its variety of trails, waterfalls, rivers, streams and limestone caves, but the wetlands of Central Trinidad and wildlife rich southern mountain range, are also great for exploring.
With tropical savannah, rainforest, woodlands and mangrove swamp, Trinidad is a paradise for lovers of diverse bird life. More than 430 bird species, from the elusive Speckled Tanager to the spectacular Scarlet Ibis can be spotted on the island.
During the months May to September, the sandy beaches along Trinidad's northeast coast are transformed as hundreds of marine turtles clamber to nest each night in an awe inspiring spectacle. Five species of turtle nest in Trinidad - Leatherback, Loggerhead, Green, Hawksbill and Olive Ridley. The leatherback turtle is the most visually dramatic of the turtles that nest in Trinidad, with adults varying in size from 600 to 2,000 pounds.
Trinidad's network of old oilfield roads and hiking paths provide a range of surfaces and environments for cycling. Terrain ranges from flat land to rolling inclines to hillsides. If you have a preference for a paved surface, almost every area of Trinidad has country roads with reduced vehicle traffic. The cross-country rider will be able to find undulating land with natural vistas. The mountain biker can find forest trails with fallen logs, bamboo and streams across the trail requiring navigation skills and dexterity.
Kayaking in Trinidad provides innumerable pleasures for those who do not want to contend with large waves, ocean swells and unpredictable sea currents. Chaguaramas, on the western peninsula and Godineau River in south Trinidad are popular kayaking sites.
Trinidad has several fascinating cave systems. In the Northern Mountain Range lies the Aripo Caves, Trinidad's largest accessible cave system and home to a colony of nocturnal lbirds. In Central Trinidad, the Tamana Caves, a complex boasting a wide 30-foot entrance and 11 species of bats, and the Cumaca Caves provides exciting opportunities for hikers. Off the western peninsula, on the island of Gaspar Grande, a network of underground caverns called the Gasparee Caves provide a wealth of geological formations including stalactites, flow stones and fringed curtains.
