Trinidad and Tobago is located in the southern part of the Caribbean Sea and consists of two main islands. Tobago is considerably smaller than the larger and more populous Trinidad. As the birthplace of calypso, soca and steelpan, it’s no surprise that thousands of tourists flock to these two islands to experience its rich culture and flavours.
Adventure seekers and nature lovers have a long itinerary of hiking, bird watching, turtle watching, kayaking and biking in store on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Cave exploration is also a popular activity as Central Trinidad is home to a number of cave systems. Cumaca Caves, Gaspar Grande and Tamana Caves all provide a wealth of geological formations such as flow stones, stalactites and fringed curtains.
To capture all the beauty and wonders of Trinidad and Tobago, cruising around the outer edges has become hugely popular. The Brian Lara Promenade is in the heart of the city and is a meeting place for cruise seekers and companies. For a trip above sea level, visit Mount St. Benedict Abbey that is 800 feet above sea level and it is the oldest monastery in the region.
Whether on the beautiful islands of Trinidad and Tobago for an adventurous nature expedition or for a quiet and romantic honeymoon, there are accommodations to meet almost every need. Fully serviced bed and breakfast options are popular throughout the islands while those on a tighter budget can opt for self-service facilities.
If travelling from the US, Caribbean Airlines, American Airlines and Delta have flights from cities such as Miami, New York and Houston to Trinidad and Tobago’s Piarco International Airport.
