Maracas waterfall, Caroni swamp and Tobago

We decided to stay in Trinidad over the Christmas period and spend some time exploring with our boys. One of the highlights was Maracas waterfall, much higher than expected and with a fair amount of water falling. Joe and Dan took a good shower.

A trip to look at the scarlet ibis was also made, the light was poor and the sky cloudy but the brightly coloured birds made a spectacular show.

For Christmas day and Boxing day we visited Tobago. The weather was poor and our planned boat trips were cancelled. However we managed to enjoy the island and the moments of sun. The waves were huge and snorkling was impossible.
