When first-time visitors come to the Caribbean, they may expect to find a laid-back paradise of pina coladas and pool-sides.  Trinidad challenges the status quo; breaks the mold.  You can chart your own adventure and discover the unexpected with a vast choice of festivals, fun events and a host of other adrenaline-generating activities.

Port of Spain, our bustling capital city, is filled with an enchanting myriad of art galleries and restaurants.  At the National Museum you can delve into the culture of our country and its diverse people.

If you prefer to be more laid back and take your time discovering our treasures, we also have our share of quiet quality.  Once part of the South American mainland, Trinidad, with its boot-like shape measuring 80 by 60 kilometres, boasts an ecological and geographical diversity unmatched in the region.

The gorgeous, sandy beaches along our North Coast provide the perfect atmosphere for seclusion, rest and recreation.  Dominated by densely forested peaks, the northern interior offers excellent hiking trails framed by canopies of lush, indigenous rain forest, while the low, predominantly agricultural plains of Central Trinidad strike a fascinating contrast.

Our East Coast is home to protected wetlands and miles of beach frontage lined by groves of coconut palms, known to locals as the 'Cocal'.  The island's 'Industrial Capital' of San Fernando is a hilly, friendly base from which to explore the island's modern oil towns, picturesque fishing villages and calm, deserted beaches.
