With the July/August vacation in full swing and with the relaxation of several public health measures, this year’s vacation will see parents and children alike, making up for all opportunities lost over the last two years.
However, while many parents may have to work or may not be able to take their children on international trips, there are several fun activities that are available locally, and here’s the best part- they’re budget-friendly.
If you’re from Central Trinidad in particular, feel free to check out some of the places we have listed:
- La Vega Estate
Located in Gran Couva, La Vega Estate is a unique combination of a garden centre, plant nursery, nature park and pool facility. Their Nature and Recreation park features acres of green, scenic spaces for picnicking, playing, relaxing and enjoying the refreshing outdoors.
There are also several ponds on the compound where you are afforded the opportunity to fish for tilapia and crayfish (at a small cost). They’re open daily from 9am -5pm and are currently running some specials.
Phone contact- 679-9522.
- The Well Fun Park
This water park is located in Cunupia, on the corner of Welcome Road North and Raghunanan Road to be exact. There are several specials running throughout the week and they’ve recently introduced a free pool-side movie night. However there’s limited seating, but persons are invited to bring their own chairs. No outside food or drink are allowed and the offer does not give access to the pools.

3. Kalpoo’s Fishing Tours
Hosted by Kalpoo’s Bird Sanctuary Ibis Tours and located in the compound of the Caroni Bird Sanctuary, this family-run business currently has several offers available, one of the more popular being their fishing tours.
