Dattatreya Temple and Hanuman Statue
Located in Central Trinidad and so you see a number of Hindu temples, and prayer flags in the yards of seemingly every house. See the largest (85-foot/26-meter) statue of the Hindu monkey-god, Lord Hanuman, outside of India. A tour of the site including the attached yoga center allows you to learn about interesting rituals and concepts

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

La Brea Pitch Lake
In deep South of Trinidad, we visit the small village of La Brea, where the Pitch Lake is situated. It is the largest of its kind in the world, and looks something like an elephant skin which can be peeled off! Our guide leads us around the site for one hour, making sure we don’t stand up on one of the vertical veins where the pitch is soft and sinking is easy. There are also spots for bathing in the sulphur pools (according to the weather).

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Temple in the Sea at Waterloo
Take a short drive across to the Temple in the Sea and Cremation Site and the East Indian Museum. Also enjoy a tasty, authentic roti lunch (not included in tour price)

Il faut rouler près de 2 heures pour se rendre au Pitch Lake, ce qui fait loin pour seulement voir un lac de bitume. Le guide qui nous a été assigné avait un très fort accent et il était très difficile de comprendre ce qu'il disait.
