“To be a world-class Eco-tourism destination . . . we hope to succeed in attracting new families, couples, athletes and recreation seekers to the peninsula, where you can be assured of a safe, clean and secured environment . . . that is Chaguaramas… the place to be.”
With a vision like that, everyone’s excited! The Chaguaramas Development Authority (CDA) has always been a leader for Eco-Tourism in Trinidad and Tobago. In 2011, they captured the top award for the Best Kept Heritage Landscape. The Gasparee Caves on the island of Gasparee Grand, maintained by the CDA, contributed to T&T receiving the World’s Best Tourist Destination for 2012!
So what’s the latest with the CDA and the Chaguaramas Ecotourism Park?
