Best Places to Propose in Trinidad
Just imagine: sand beneath your feet, wind in your hair, sun on your back, and the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean before you. Sounds like paradise, right? Welcome to Trinidad, the southernmost island in the Caribbean. The beautiful beaches are just one aspect of Trinidad. This island has so much more to offer, which is why it’s the next stop in our places to propose series! Whether you live in Trinidad or you plan on visiting soon, we’re giving you a list of the ultimate spots to pop the question. Let’s get started!
1. Maracas Bay
If you’re looking for the ideal Caribbean beach experience, Maracas Bay is it. Even though it’ll take you about an hour to get there from Port of Spain, it’ll feel like no time at all. The scenic, mountainous drive is all part of the experience. You can grab lunch at one of the dozens of Bake and Shark huts, which will serve you a Trinidadian native dish of deep-fried shark. After a day of lounging and relaxing on the sand, turn to your partner and present her with one of our glittering diamond rings.
2. Royal Botanical Gardens
If you’re looking for an idyllic setting for a proposal, consider the royal botanical gardens in Port of Spain. These botanical gardens are part of a larger park called the Queen’s Park Savannah. The park itself features mansions from the Spanish colonial era. After entering the park, you can stroll into the gardens for a serene experience. There’s no fee, and you’re free to do as you please. You can bring a picnic, take a close look at all the flowers, or just sit and relax. We promise you won’t be disappointed by your surroundings when you get down on one knee and take out one of our diamond rings.
3. Paria Falls
If you and your partner are up for a long and challenging hike, we recommend going to Paria Falls. This hike will take you about seven hours there and back, so it’s not to be taken lightly. However, the experience of the hike and the views of the end destination make it all worth it. During the hike to the falls, you’ll see some interesting trees and plants, as well as tropical birds like macaws and parrots. At the end of your long journey, the view of the crystal-clear cascading water will take your breath away. That’s when you should pop the question! She’ll be so exhausted and excited that she won’t expect a proposal.
4. Caroni Swamp
Boat tours are available everyday from dawn until dusk so you can experience the wonder of the Caroni Swamp. We recommend you schedule your tour at dusk because that’s when the Scarlet Ibis, Trinidad’s national bird, comes in to roost. You’ll be amazed by the number of Scarlet Ibis that will fly in and the roost like flowers on the trees. They’ll fly in during sunset, which makes for one truly romantic moment. Don’t let it go to waste. Propose right then and there.
