When last yuh went Maqueripe...


Last week Sunday the family and I headed west to the Chaguaramas peninsula to take a bike ride and then head to Maqueripe. My boys have NEVER been to Maqueripe as most times when we say beach, that means Maracas.

Though my boys have bikes, I had to rent one so we made our way to the bike rental place...which was closed. And looked like it had been closed for some time. So that was my first surprise on Sunday!

We decided to head straight to Maqueripe. Now I have not been to Maqueripe in over a year (or maybe more), and the last time I went there they were just starting the renovations.

Let me tell you Maqueripe has had a complete makeover and the place is lovely!
Makes me feel like I could visit more often! (if only male sea bathers didn't wear their boxers shorts in the ocean).

Here are some shots I took.

WOW! I haven't been there in probably 15 years as well, and I love what they've done with the place! Now if only they could get some good bake and shark vendors...

Not while I was there. And in the years I used to go there before I never heard of any vehicles getting broken into.

The renovations were needed but I'm not sure it warranted the destruction of the entire hillside. IMHO the beach is too small to accomadate the number of people who now frequent it. I have tried to go since the renovation but each time I turned back because it is too crowded. Something has been lost.
BTw Love the new look to your site
