... creatures. The ocean museum was interesting though with an amazing collection of shells. Also there to greet us was a lovely green parrot native to the island called a ‘Guacamaya’ a laughing parrot apparently.

On the way back we saw many flamingos and lots of small herons. In all it was a superb trip and we are looking forward to seeing a greater variety of birds tomorrow on our trip to the Caroni Bird Sanctuary.

was heaving! Unfortunately this attracts the touts and their sickening patter

communal cooking/eating area. I had been concerned it might be noisy but had it
to myself. The lovely breeze continued all night so mossies were blown into

... Trip Advisor – maybe they were before wifey died and things have been let go since, but the room was dirty, way overpriced, the fan like it's owner was barely operational and the fridge took off & climbed to 30,000 feet for about 5 mins every quarter hour!!
