The home of carnival, calypso, limbo dancing and Angostura bitters, Trinidad and Tobago's contributions to the world have always been an assault on the senses. On a holiday to Trinidad and Tobago you'll find a calendar full of unusual events such as crab or goat racing, and for those who don’t go on holiday to relax, horse-riding, hiking, mountain-biking and kayaking can all be arranged.
Why we like Trinidad and Tobago
Both islands radiate a constant party atmosphere which you would be hard pressed to ignore. Accommodation options range from boutique city hotels to rainforest retreats and beachfront resorts with a price range to suit most pockets, making these islands some of the most affordable in the Caribbean.
What to expect on your Trinidad and Tobago holiday
The Trinidadian capital, Port of Spain, hosts a world famous annual carnival while inland birdwatching is a big attraction with swamps, wetlands, mangroves and dense rainforest hosting an excellent range of native and migratory avifauna. Tobago, the smaller sister island, is altogether a much wilder proposition and renowned for its beautiful beaches and reef-protected waters with Charlotteville, at the north-eastern tip, ranking as one of the Caribbean’s most picturesque towns.
