Waterville has a plethora of floral and fauna. They have orchards of fruit trees adorning the grounds, flowers every place you look, and green lush plants in all directions. It’s pretty awesome.

Driving through Trinidad you would never think that Waterville Estate is on the same island. J and I spent some time at Waterville at the end of last year and we absolutely fell in love with the place. The pictures can’t even begin to capture the beauty.

We decided to stay at Holiday Inn Express because we really enjoyed our time there in Houston, plus it was close to the airport and there was a free shuttle from/to the airport and from/to TrinCity Mall.
