4.5 42 Reviews | Add your review

Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean are perhaps an odd pairing of islands. While Tobago is a sleepy and less crowded island, its sister Trinidad is the exact opposite – a bustling, crowded island with many cosmopolitan influences. Port of Spain, the capital city, attracts thousands of tourists who use it as a hub before venturing into the more historical and colonial areas of the islands, and of course to the beaches.

Day 1: Take a Tour

Trinidad and Tobago’s capital, Port of Spain, is a bustling city dotted with forts and colonial ruins and posh marketplaces and art galleries alike. Perhaps the best way to find your way in this maze of excitement is to embark on one of the city’s many introductory tours. The Port of Spain City Tour will take you through many of the island’s old and new sights such as the Red House on Abercromby Street.

Day 2: Beach Drive

One of the most popular pleasures in Trinidad and Tobago is to drive along the beaches, stopping by at beaches along the way for a shack meal or some fun and frolic. The Trinidad Highlights and Scenic Drive is a nice tour that allows you to do just that as you journey from the famous Maracas Beach to Saddle Road. Other tour highlights include a short drive to Lady Young Lookout and a visit to coffee and cocoa plantations at Santa Cruz Valley.

Day 3: Nature and Sightseeing

If you’re a nature lover, Trinidad and Tobago offers plenty to keep you busy. Head over to the 200 acre (81 hectare) Asa Wright Nature Center bird sanctuary and conservation center to experience an unmatched ecological diversity. Alternatively, make a trip to Buccoo Reef in Scarborough where you can witness unparalleled marine life either as you snorkel or aboard a glass bottomed boat.
