Trinidad & Tobago – A TOURIST IN THE CARIBBEAN

Trinidad & Tobago

The Caribbean is packed with fabulous destinations but probably the most exciting and unique destination of all the islands is the most southerly of all the islands, Trinidad and Tobago.  Located just about seven miles of the coast of Venezuela, this little island is one of the Caribbean’s hidden paradise. This beautiful gem in the Caribbean Sea is a country like no other!

The island is known for its incredible natural diversity and dynamic cultural spectacle. The land of Steelband and calypso, the steel pan is widely regarded as the only major musical instrument in the world, to be invented in the 20th century. Trinidad and Tobago stand out for its fabulous beaches, lush greenery, cascading waterfalls, beautiful coral reefs in the aquamarine and azure waters of Tobago, and its beautiful array of flora and fauna at the island’s Botanical Garden and a very tropical unspoiled rainforest suitable for all family members.

One of the island’s favorite attractions, among others, for visitors is the Emperor Valley Zoo with its rare species of animals and a wide assortment of beautiful birds species including the islands’ native birds, the Trinidad Hummingbird, and the Tobago, Cocrico. Some consider the beach at Pigeon Point, Tobago to be one of the finest in the world with its sandy shores stretching for miles with waters so clear that one sees the fishes as they swim by. But there is nothing like setting aboard a glass-bottom ‘party-style’ boat at Buccoo Reef and head out to the Nylon Pool, an area of about two feet deep in the ocean, to see the beautiful corals and bathe in the effervescent waters which some believe would restore youth and good health.

Trinidad and Tobago is recognized as a high-income economy by the World Bank. The country’s economy is primarily industrial, with an emphasis on petroleum and petrochemicals. The country’s wealth is attributed to its large reserves and exploitation of oil and natural gas. The island’s robust economy has made the island a powerhouse among its Caribbean neighbors. Then there is the dynamic nightlife like no other and its unique culture exhibited by its world-renowned carnival and yearly festivals.

It is impossible to visit the islands without getting a feel for its diverse culture, in its Calypso and Soca music, and of course, the various ethnic dishes serve on the island. But mostly, the island is surely represented by the warmth and energy of the sun, the beauty of nature, the vitality of the land, and the courage and friendliness of its people. Culturally the island is equally diverse with people of ethnic mixes and religions. A wide variety of Afro Caribbean, Indian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern dishes are available on both islands.

With its beautiful beaches, plenty of natural resources, a plethora of entertainment, great shopping, and a wide array of cultural activities all year-round, the two-islands state is a vacation paradise for winter vacation seekers. But the beauty doesn’t end with just the two islands, there are other smaller islands, ‘known as Down the Islands’, that surround the main island that is also very fascinating. If you ever have the chance at having a vacation you should grab the chance to visit the beautiful islands of Trinidad and Tobago.
