      Trinidad and Tobago Details

      The island of Trinidad, and its smaller neighbor Tobago, offer a rich variety of travel experiences, certainly with something for everyone. Trinidad is busier and is more popular among visitors looking to go hiking, take in some natural sights, or to visit the plethora of heritage sights the isle has to offer. Tobago offers a much slower-paced way of life, with sugar-white beaches and calm waters perfect for snorkeling or diving. The two countries do not rely on tourism but are very welcoming to travelers, and as the home of both the calypso and steelpan musical styles not to mention limbo dancing a trip here is likely to be one that stays in the memory for years to come.

      The diverse cultural and religious background of the melting pot of natives to the twin isles allows for dozens of festivals, carnivals and celebrations throughout the year, with Divali a particular treat. Cricket is the country's national game and any visit here is not complete without a visit to a local match, where the traditions are quite different to what you might expect back home! Another big point of interest is the Caroni bird sanctuary, where many indigenous species come home to roost at dusk.
