|Tours & Links
While our rooms offer a peek into the history and heartbeat of our
people, we are excited at the prospect that you learn just a little more
about our country during your stay with us. In light of this, Coblentz
Inn Boutique Hotel has designed several island tours centered on our room themes.
Through the Front Desk
The National Trust of Trinidad and Tobago conducts a drive/walk tour
through Port of Spain and the surrounding areas, including an
enlightening drive around the Savannah to see our Magnificent Seven and
the President's House.
The Angostura Tour – Internationally acclaimed for its
award winning rums and home of world-famous Angostura Bitters, Angostura
offers a tour of its rum factory. The estate also features a museum
devoted to the history of the Angostura and Fernandes distilling
operations and an art gallery displaying the works of Caribbean artists.
For you avid cricket fans, the Queens Park Oval is already known as the
site of historic matches and individual performances. We can't imagine
that you would miss the chance to see Brian Lara at the crease, but the
only time to do so would be in the international cricket season of
course, which runs from March to May. If you would like us to coordinate
tickets to one of the matches, please don't hesitate to ask at the Front
The River Lime tour is a challenging one, so prepare yourself for some
hiking. Starting at the Asa Wright Nature Centre, a premiere location
for bird watching, this jaunt offers a drive along the scenic Arima
Blanchisseuse road, a visit to a century old swing bridge, a hike
through the Marianne River to the Avocat waterfall, and the option of
lunch and a dip in either the fresh water Marianne River or the
Available everyday but Sunday.
Central/This Old House/Cocoa House
There are several options for this tour that include a drive through the
sugar cane and cocoa estates in Central Trinidad to visit the oldest
wooden church on our islands, a trip to old coca lands up to a
refurbished cocoa estate house and through the Brasso Seco village, or
hike up Tamana Hills past our world renowned bat caves to, what Geoffrey
describes as the most magnificent view in Trinidad, across Central
Trinidad to the Gulf of Paria and the entire Northern Range including
the Atlantic ocean. If you time it correctly, on your way back down you
are witnesses to the thousands of bats leaving the caves at sunset.
Down the Islands
The five islands situated off the North West tip of Trinidad have
mesmerizing histories. With the coast of Venezuela as a backdrop in the
distance, you will take a boat ride through the islands and hear of
their natural and social history, eventually stopping off on
Chacachacare island, once a leper colony. This is an all day tour to the
islands that culminates with a trip to our Military Museum.
Tours can be arranged through our Front Desk Agent..

there, we assure that you will quite snap happy on any of these tours,
