  • Maracas Beach

    One of my favorite places to visit when I go to Trinidad is Maracas beach. Not necessarily for the ocean alone. But the drive up there is scenic and once you get there try the bake and shark at one of the little food shacks. Trust me its worth the drive alone :-)

    more
  • Tour around the island

    Tobago is a small island so it's definitely worth to rent a car and make a trip around the island. In one day you'll see beautiful falls, forest reserve, nice villages, very very nice beaches and maybe you save some time to Scarborough (capital) for shopping. Sure there'd be even more to see but one day was enough for us as we also wanted to bath...

  • Fun in Tobago

    First of all... you'll wake up real early in Tobago! It's hot and the sun rises very early, so you'll be wide awake at 7am and half asleep at 8pm! Things to do: well... definitely go to the beach (Pigeon Point is one of the nicest beaches-mind the water, though, there is a waste pipe very close!-, but Store Bay has the nicest water!)There are...

  • Maracas Bay

    Maracas Bay is a beach covered in Coconut trees, and surrounded by mountains with lush green jungle. It's appearance is not like most other Caribbean beaches.

  • Rain forest tour

    Another nice tour, a little bit more "cultural" than Little Tobago but as reelaxing and interesting as the other one.Stepping into the rain forest is an experience, you can go there for birdwatching, for flowers-watching, for trees-watching and so on .. it's a something-watching tour.

    more
  • Scarborough

    A quick tour of the island capital is also a must, nothing really astonishing to see but understanding the way of life in this part of the world simply means going i a city and trying daily activities: shopping in the supermarket, buying a newspaper & so on ...Believe me it's quite different than in Europe !!!
