Welcome to Chaguaramas
The area is a popular recreation spot, with a couple of beaches, a golf course and lovely hiking in verdant Tucker Valley; a giant waterpark is under construction along the waterfront. It's also the launching point for tours to a chain of offshore islands, the Bocas. Popular options are Gasparee Island, where you can visit caves that drip with stalactites, or the most distant, 360-hectare Chacachacare, a former leper colony. Boat tours, hiking, swimming and historical excursions, can be arranged with Island Experiences or the Chaguaramas Development Authority, which manages the peninsula.
