If you want to be at the center of the action – or if you want to get away from it all – there’s a place for you in the lovely sister islands of Trinidad and Tobago!
Trinidad and Tobago are twin islands with a split personality: one puts you in the heart of non-stop action and partying, the other places you right at the edge of the natural world.
A hub of multiculturalism created by Africans, East Indians, Europeans, and Chinese, Trinidad’s perpetually festive atmosphere has given birth to the calypso, the steel drum, and the limbo, and it hosts one of the world’s most scintillating Carnival celebrations. Port of Spain, the bustling capital city, is packed with nightclubs, pubs, and bars, and is a shoppers’ paradise for jewelry, perfumes, china and crystal, handicrafts, local artworks, and books. The island is lined with spectacular beaches – many of them blissfully secluded – that are made for surfing, swimming, body-boarding, scuba diving, kayaking, fishing, and sailing.
Smaller, quieter, and prettier, Tobago is largely undeveloped. You’ll find laid-back villages and uncrowded beaches, and in the center of it all, the oldest rainforest in the western hemisphere. Sailing and sport fishing are the choice diversions at the shore, lined by reefs that are prized by scuba divers. Scarborough, the island’s little capital city, is worth a visit for its lively produce market, Georgian architecture, and fabulous views of the harbor from the restored 18th-century Fort King George at the top of the hill.
Whether you are seeking adventure, culture, or nightlife, Trinidad and Tobago is waiting to amaze you!
