La Vega

La Vega Estate is located at 726 Gran Couva Main Road, Trinidad. Contact: 1 (868) 679-9522. email:

Located in central Trinidad, La Vega Estate is a 250 acre paradise with outdoor activities and interests for the whole family. Originally a cocoa estate, La Vega is now home to a unique combination of a garden centre, plant nursery, nature and recreation park.

La Vega is much more than a business venture to owner, Bertram Manhin, whose lifelong love affair with plants and nature led him to purchase the estate in 1983. An avid plant collector, Manhin soon established a nursery which he stocks with plant material from both local sources and his travels around the world.

Also a great lover of fruit, Manhin has successfully introduced and cultivated a wide variety of rare and exotic fruit in Trinidad. Among his favorites are rambutan from Malaysia, giant dongs and sweet carambola from Taiwan, abiu and giant peewah from Brazil and Costa Rica. If anyone reading this post has seen or even tasted this giant peewah I am very interested in knowing if the taste is the same as the traditional peewah, better or just a bit over rated.
