Are you visiting Trinidad soon and want to do something fun outdoors in the sun and in water, but without the sand or hike to a waterfall or the drive to a far off river? Well, there are a number of waterparks that offer fun in the great outdoors. You can shoot down a turbo slide splashing into a pool of water or close your eyes while you float on an inner tube down a lazy river.
Harry’s Water Park
One of the largest water parks in the twin island, located on 30-acres of land on the Tabaquite Road, Rio Claro, it is about one and a half hours drive from Port of Spain.

They provide much needed shade, seating, BBQ pits, running water. That way you and your crew can drive up through the park to your designated shed. Once there, a big welcome sign greets visitor’s which leads to the ample car park which facilitates visitors to park for the day. The park is vast and includes a boating pond which offers paddles boats for three persons or kayaks for one, numerous waterslides, Lazyman River – tubing and hammock area, three swimming pools – two large, one small and zip lining across the lake. And for your little ones who aren’t quite ready to plunge down a waterslide you can take them to the Nature Trail and Wildlife Park- mini zoo or for some ice cream in Harry’s Food.
Located in south Trinidad on the M2 Ring Road, Debe, Fun Splash offers a modern state-of-the-art waterpark.
