A tour in Trinidad explores natural wonders that can rekindle sex lives.

Those vacationing in the Caribbean frequently sign up for tours focusing on history and culture, but in Port of Spain, Suzan Gail has come up with a six-night Tropical Sensations & Temptations tour, which revolves around local products long reputed by locals to be aphrodisiacs.

Gail suggests traditional tour sites which take in well-known historical landmarks and locations are often “saturated” with visitors which is why she has created what she says is the first in the Caribbean devoted to local products that, among other things, can boost sexual prowess. “I had to make a difference to my industry here in Trinidad and Tobago, and be innovative by creating a new product offering,” says Suzan of Exclusive Tour Services

“I believe this tour can rekindle romances, boost honeymooners’ experiences, give spark and spunk to the over-50 travellers and excite the curious vacationers who like to explore new territories.”

Gail says this is a kind of health and wellness tourism and the overall package has therapeutic massages, some yoga and organic meals in between the mix of things. The perspective is not only about sexual desires.

The itinerary includes a visit to Blanchisseuse Village, where a resident will help the visitors make a drink with sea moss, believed by locals to help men and women increase their libido. (Added Carnation milk and island spices “add zest to the final concoction,” Gail advises.)

Another feature is a visit to the Avocat Waterfall, where a relaxing swim provides what’s billed as a “sensational massage. It’s very rejuvenating.” And then there’s the late afternoon hot cocoa tea made with area cocoa and a “shot of bois bande tree bark” that is said to enhance male stamina. (“It must be taken with caution,” we are cryptically advised.)

Gail – who says that the tour is being done in an environmentally sensitive manner – is convinced there’s no question that showcased aphrodisiacs are effective, with locals having used them for centuries and having created a “series of unique and natural products. Travellers are fed up with the standardized, cheap holiday packages, which most feel are boring, filled with the same-old, same-old.”

She says those with a “one-track mind “might be a little skeptical” about the tour. Her response: “Remember that the true definition of aphrodisiac is the arousing of all the human senses – taste, touch, feel, sight and sound. The package has all these elements in it. The arousal part depends on the individuals and their interpretation when they experience the contents.” The tour was launched in late January, an ideal time, says Gail as it spilled over into Trinidad’s raucous Carnival season and appropriately, continued on to Valentine’s Day.
