There is an intricate limestone cave system on the island of Gaspar Grande, off Trinidad’s north-western coast, the Gasparee Caves. Magnificent stalagmites and stalactites line the cave and some limestone formations have taken the shape of dinosaurs and other creatures. Sunlight streams through a hole to the top of the cave, making the water in the cave’s deep blue grotto glisten invitingly.
