Travel to and Explore Trinidad



 Trinidad is the larger of the two islands which make up the nation of Trinidad in Tobago. It has a population of roughly 1.3 million and is located in the Caribbean Sea. It is the southernmost island just 11 kilometers off the coast of Venezuela. Because of its location and history, it has a rich multicultural makeup with people from African, European, and Spanish backgrounds. Trinidad gained its independence from England in 1962 and went on to become the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in 1976. It's a top tourist destination and for good reason.

 Trinidad is the second richest nation in the West Indies and offers tourists picturesque beaches and stunning natural beauty. Tourists are often surprised to learn that Trinidad is home to a modern city complete with skyscrapers. The island is a major exporter of natural gas and is home to other industries such as oil and agriculture. Also, Trinidad is said to be where Calypso music originated from along with their own style of dance to the beat of steel drums. For a real treat, visit Trinidad during its pre-Lenten carnival celebration to get a real feel for the island's culture at its finest. It's a party like no other.

 Next, many tourists come to Trinidad for the beach and the sunny weather. Of course Trinidad has these things just like any island in the Caribbean. Trinidad has much more to offer, though. If you're a nature lover, there are hundreds of wild orchids and exotic birds to be seen. Stop in to the Asa Wright Nature Centre in the Arima Valley or the Caroni Bird Sanctuary to learn more. Trinidad is also home to a stunning Botanical Garden. There are also many family activities in Trinidad such as the Port of Spain's Emperor Valley Zoo. If you're more into sightseeing, be sure to visit San Fernando where you can climb the Anaparima Hill and take in the magical views that span as far as Venezuela. While there, visit the Holy Trinity Church, the President's home, and the Hall of Justice. The island also has some interesting museums such as the National Science Center.

 Trinidad will not disappoint so be sure to put it at the top of the list for your next vacation!

 Getting to Trinidad and Tobago is made easy with Piarco International Airport being a short 20 miles outside of Port of Spain.
