The Ministry of Tourism for Trinidad and Tobago, in collaboration with the Trinidad and Tobago Incoming Tour Operators Association, has launched a sustainable eco-tourism trail project that will enable visitors and nature enthusiasts to enjoy and experience more of the dual island’s natural beauty.
Over the next five years, the ministry will work with local residents and communities to restore around 1,000 km of untouched landscape in the North Coast of Trinidad with the aim of opening up a number of hiking and biking trails. Walkers and biking enthusiasts will be able to experience new trails through the rainforest and along the coastline, with lunch stops at different communities along the way.
Warren Solomon, general manager of marketing for the tourism development company, said: "We are seeing a rise in visitors who are attracted to Trinidad and Tobago due to the strength of its adventure and sports offering and the new eco-trail shows our continued commitment to developing and investing within this area. We are also looking forward to working closely with the local communities to create a number of long term jobs.”
