Rincon Village is a secluded settlement located just before the Las Cuevas Beach. At 250 ft/76m Rincon Waterfall is Trinidad’s second highest cascading waterfall. It flows over a steep cliff and cascades down a series of rock steps into a large basin. Great for a swim!
The hike from the village to the base of the falls will take about 1.5-2.5 hours. The terrain includes a pretty steep uphill climb for approx. 1 hour, followed by a mellower downward hike of approx. 20 minutes – the duration is according to the fitness level of the hikers.
The trail has a variety of exotic fruit trees, for example Mammie-apple, Mango, Cashew and Cocoa as it leads through abandoned estates from colonial times.
Echoing distinctly in the forest is the loud call of the black and white male bearded bellbird. His sounds are to attract a female and at the same time ward off any rival males.
Now it’s on to your culinary treat – the ultimate Bake & Shark fish sandwich at Maracas Beach (cost on own). A crispy flat-bread with fried fish and delicious sauces! Beware of the hot pepper, Trinidad boasts the second hottest pepper in the world!
