The twin-island republic of Trinidad and Tobago offers visitors the best of both worlds. This nation is bursting with a rich culture. Stemming from a history of European colonialism. West African slavery and East Indian indentureship.
Trinidad, the larger of the two islands, is an entertainment centre with a wide selection of nightspots, restaurants and shopping destinations. Coupled with world-famous ecotourism sites.
Trinidad has something to offer nature-seeker as well as the party animal. Tobago on the other hand, is a wonder world for the nature enthusiast.
Alive with nightlife, Trinidad boasts myriads of options from Irish pubs, to live theatre and modern dance clubs. But if Trinidad is the energetic heart of these islands, Tobago is its serene soul, just two hours away from Port-of-Spain by fast ferry or 15 minutes by air.
A host of beautiful beaches, waterfalls, wetlands and diving sites await visitors. Tobago is Trinidad and Tobago tourist capital, with exotic accommodations and activities designed specifically for guests.
The secluded beaches and overall slower pace of life have the ability to settle anyone’s mood. Combined, these two islands undoubtedly offer a one-of-a –kind island escape.
