About Us

Maracas Bay Agri Tourism Park is Trinidad's newest outdoor attraction. We are dedicated to presenting the various kinds of agriculture along with the flora and fauna of Trinidad and Tobago. We cater to tourists and locals simultaneously; creating a unique and multicultural setting that is an interesting and beneficial learning experience for all. The park is one minute away from Maracas Beach, making it an excellent place for tourists to stop in and check out Trinidad’s fruits, veggies, wildlife, and even experience a river lime. We provide some unique and interactive experiences such as our 9-hole mini golf course, tilapia fishing, caiman pond, educational tours and other special events.

What is Gone Green! to Maracas Bay Agri Tourism Park?
For us being Green means to be environmentally conscious with decisions. We view this in a moderate way and try our best to maintain a balance among business, the environment and costs.

There are obviously some things that are not possible in regards to meeting business objectives and safety for guests, however the fact that we are aware and are consciously trying to have least possible impact on the environment is the main point.

We believe being Green should be fun and stress free. We are aware that change is a gradual process and will only be adopted if it is so. For us it is not about taking it to extremes where one becomes uncomfortable or make others uncomfortable. It is not a competition to see how many faults you can find in another person who by the way is trying to do something to benefit the world and everyone in it; for us it is about making as many people as we can, aware of the environment, nature and sustainability in their daily choices. We are on the planet together and we should do as much as we can for the natural environment while maintaining happiness in ourselves and our friends.
