Maracas Valley is filled with hidden treasures, which I’m yet to explore.

There we have the a lot of tributaries that contribute to the St Joseph River, and some with waterfalls and pools to amazing not to visit.

Maracas Valley Waterfall

One of the famous spots found in the valley, and Trinidad.

It’s well worth heading deep into Maracas–St Joseph Valley to see the Maracas Valley Waterfall, which crashes magnificently down 91m of sheer rock.

Making it Trinidad’s highest waterfall.

Unfortunately, this fall has no pool at the base, because the falls does not generate enough hydraulic pressure to form a basin due to the high altitude.

However, the water forms a shower-like spray that is excellent for a cool down on a hot day.
