Did you know this fact?

Trinidad and Tobago is the birthplace of steelpan, the only musical instrument invented in the 20th century. Originating from the African drumming traditions of enslaved people, steelpan emerged in Trinidad’s impoverished communities. Recycled steel drums were repurposed into melodic instruments, revolutionizing music worldwide. Today, steelpan is an integral part of Trinidadian culture, celebrated through vibrant festivals and performances globally.

About Trinidad and Tobago

Nestled at the southern end of the Caribbean archipelago near to the eastern tip of Venezuela is the country of Trinidad and Tobago. It consists of two islands: the larger, Trinidad and a smaller, Tobago, garnering it the nickname of the “twin-island state”. It is one of the most populous countries in the Caribbean having 1.4 million inhabitants. Many may have heard of it as a massively popular destination for its annual cultural festival of Carnival – a two-day period where people fill the streets and revel in fantastical costumes making a grand parade full of colour, music and excitement. Although this period is the country’s most famous, it just scratches the surface of what these islands have to offer. The nation is a unique destination in the Caribbean and stands out from other islands due to its unique topography, rich culture and wonderful flora and fauna.

Trinidad and Tobago are known as some of the most cosmopolitan areas in the Caribbean, having a vast range of cultural and ethnic diversity that is celebrated by its people. Because of this, it is often called a “melting pot” of culture. This is reflected in the wide range of beliefs practiced on the islands with the Protestant, Roman Catholic, Hindu, and Muslim faiths being most common. This diversity can be seen around the country, with there being cathedrals, statues and temples scattered around the islands for travellers to view.

The islands exist in a tropical climate and have two seasons, a wet and dry season. Despite this, the weather is consistently warm with a constant cool breeze from the trade winds that travel over the islands. Year-round, one can expect average daily highs of 31.3 C/88F and daily lows of 22.7 C/72.9F. The islands have a diverse natural landscape producing a wide variety of sights, from waterfalls to wetlands to add to the many gorgeous beaches that they are known for.
This destination is filled with forested mountain ranges which have created magnificent formations such as high waterfalls and beautiful caves which are great spots to hike to. There are even locations where you can zipline through the treetops. As a Caribbean destination, it hosts several beautiful beaches where you can swim, sunbathe, and relax. Past the shores, there are also wonderful natural phenomena like the Buccoo Coral reef and the natural crystal-clear Nylon Pools that travellers can experience on a glass-bottom boat ride.

“Nature is also very present on the islands as there exist several different species of wildlife that cannot be found in other parts of the world. These include the vibrantly red cousin of the Flamingo, the Scarlet Ibis (so iconic that it is the country’s national bird), the leatherback turtle which comes to nest and lay eggs on the nation’s beaches, and 14 different varieties of hummingbird (the most found in any part of the world). The experiences available to a traveller to this twin-island destination are as diverse as the people and cultures who inhabit it. From culture to nature, to adventure, there is something for everyone and the country is filled with sights, sounds and moments that will leave you breathless. And, being listed as one of Vogue Magazine’s hottest travel destinations for 2017, it is clear that many others agree! Trinidad and Tobago is no ordinary Caribbean destination, and you will see that right after you set foot on its shores.

La Brea Pitch Lake

South-Western Trinidad is home to the largest naturally occurring asphalt flat on the planet, fondly called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” by locals. It is one of only three in known existence and contains an estimated 10 million tons of the black sticky material which spans 100 acres with depths of 250 feet. While on a tour, visitors can walk on the surface might feel as if the lake alive, with its hissing and burping sounds.

L’eau Michel Mud Volcano

A natural phenomenon where mud slowly flows out through active vents spanning approximately an acre. This mud is cool and smooth to the touch and so dense that it keeps visitors afloat. The area is touted as a unique spa experience, and the nearby L’eau Michel Beach allows for a refreshing sea bath. The surrounding scenery is comprised of cane fields and teak forests.

Gasparee Caves

Found on the island of Gaspar Grande, 15-minutes off the coast of North-Western Trinidad – are the Gasparee Caves. This is a natural system of limestone caverns created by millions of years of wave action and slightly acid rain on the island of Gaspar Grande. The largest of these caves is known as the Blue Grotto which holds a mysterious clear tidal pool at its bottom. The cave contains interesting stalagmite and stalactite formations which have been given nicknames such as “The Buddha”, “Virgin Mary” and “The Lovers”.

Avocat Falls

Found on the scenic north coast of Trinidad, near the quaint village of Blanchissuese is the Avocat Waterfall, otherwise known as ‘Gran Fond Falls’ by the indigenous people who called the island home – meaning “the river that comes from the sky”. It is one of Trinidad’s finest and most beautiful waterfalls. The 50 ft tall curtain of water thunders down into a Jacuzzi-type plunge pool below and is landscaped by a wall of glistening bronze stone, lush vegetation, and surrounding rocks which make a great springboard for jumping into the deep blue-green water below.

Argyle Falls

Located on the Northeast side of Tobago, this 175 feet tall cascade of cool, crisp water attracts locals and visitors alike. With 3 levels, the thunderous sound of the waterfall is heard long before you see it. The first level is the tallest, but, hides the real splendour of Argyle’s upper levels. Adventurous explorers can hike up to the second level, where they will be rewarded with several natural rock tubs to relax in. Going further upward to the third level, they will be met with the smallest but deepest pool where they can dive, jump or swing into the water using nearby vines.

Buccoo Bay

Located at the Buccoo Village, Buccoo Bay is one of the main centres of Tobagonian entertainment. The gorgeous stretch of beach and clear waters are a refreshing sight for all who visit. Visitors are invited to experience this beauty even closer. This location offers many experiences such as snorkelling at the famous Buccoo Reef to witness the unique underwater flora and fauna first-hand; and glass-bottom boat tours which glide through the waves, giving riders a view of the ocean beneath their feet through a plexiglass screen on the boat’s floor.

Macqueripe Bay

Along the North-Western Coast of Trinidad is this small and relaxing stretch of beach, hugged on either side by forest. The view of the bay is spectacular and on a clear day, you can see the Venezuelan mainland in the distance. It also contains one of the island’s best eco-adventures. Here, visitors will have the opportunity to traverse pathways created in the forest canopy and zipline from point to point. This experience shows the location from a completely new angle as visitors zip above the beautiful bay and the beachgoers below them.

Caroni Bird Sanctuary

The 12,000-acre Caroni Swamp and Bird Sanctuary is the natural nesting home of the Scarlet Ibis, one of the national birds of Trinidad and Tobago. The major attraction at this mangrove is the opportunity to observe, close to sunset, the ritualistic roosting habits of thousands of these bright red birds. At this location, visitors can take a guided boat tour through the river channels and see first-hand why this location has been called one of the most beautiful mangrove wetlands in the Western Hemisphere.

Fort George

Formerly called La Vigie, Fort George is situated on the hills to the North of Trinidad overlooking the Gulf of Paria. The fort is the best destination for one of the most spectacular views of Port of Spain and the sea. At this well-preserved structure, one can see the original cannons, dungeons, and a signal station built in 1804 under the direction of then British Governor, Brigadier-General Sir Thomas Hislop. This fort was considered well-nigh impregnable at the time and it was the major defensive position in Trinidad, but it was never to experience military action.

Bush Bush Wildlife Sanctuary

The Bush Bush Wildlife Sanctuary is situated in the South-Western region of the Nariva Swamp in Eastern Trinidad. It is home to more than 200 species of birds and animals. The Sanctuary sits on Bush Bush Island – an area of high ground that is approximately 3 meters above the swamp that is bordered by palms and covered in hardwood and silk-cotton trees. Here, red howler monkeys are often seen swinging between these trees which also serve as the nesting place for colourful parrots, the red-bellied macaw and an array of beautiful butterflies.
