Trinidad and Tobago Tourist Traps

  • Argyle Waterfalls

    The Argyle Waterfalls are not as impressive as the Highland Waterfalls, though everyone will tell you to visit them.Yo have to pay a entrance fee, as a guide will lead you to the waterfalls. The most impressive part was the hike to the falls, as we saw several beautiful plantand trees and a cayman. Dip in the pool....the water is really...

  • Buccoo Reef

    Suffered a lot of damage from careless tour operators and tourists who step on the corals. Let the reef heal, don’t go and add to its destruction. I hear there’s not that much to see anymore anyways. If you absolutely have to go, make sure you go with a reputable tour operator, who cares about the reef as well. Do not under any...

  • Privatising a beach, Pigeon Point

    This used to be a public beach, even a fishing beach for locals, but not anymore. The property is now owned by a Trinidadian businessman, access is stronly controlled and there is an entry fee to the beach. Locals aren' t welcome as they used to be. And if there's a cruise ship visiting Tobago this beach will be packed of people like sardines in a...

  • On Tobago, Pigeon Point isn't worth 5...

    I have a real hard time believing that anyone could prefer a contrived setting like Pigeon Point over the other beaches on Tobago. Unless you HAVE to stay near the airport and CAN'T get transportation up either coast there is no reason to pay $ to get crammed into this bug-infested beach. You could spend some time here before your plane leaves...

    Pigeon Point has a picture perfect thatch-roofed pier, makes it easier to get on the glass-bottom boat to Bucco Reef and Nylon Pool, but showers in the bathroom were not even finished, and looks like they will never be, you need to wear water-shoes to walk on the broken coral and debris strewed beach. The worst conditioned beach on the island, save...

    Always be careful on the streets. As a tourist you stick out now matter how hard you try to blend in. Keep your jewellery at home. Women should not travel alone. Don't exchange currency on the street -there are plenty of banks in Trinidad.

  • Cultural Shows put on by...

    Cultural Shows put on by Hotels are anything but Cultural. I have been to the one at The Trinidad Hilton and at Sandy Point in Tobago. I find the shows to be a watered down attempt at showcasing our diverse culture and the typical Limbo thrown in for good measure is a joke. The best way to experience our culture is to visit a festival that we have...

    If you are a tourist the local people, that sell something, think: You have money! In Tobago that is. So always try to lower your price when trying to buy something on the market. Don't pay for something you can't take or use right away, like a souvenir they don't have right now or a barbecue at the beach that will start in an hour. Yeah right!

  • Watch out for 'foriegn prices'...

    Watch out for 'foriegn prices' for car fares or souveniers. Ask the locals what it should cost before taking a taxi or Maxi-taxi. If you can, get a local to go in and buy it for you.

    Taxi's....These taxis (cars with a 'H' plate or any vehicle it would seem) with stop and give you rides along specified routes. I is about $3 T&T dollars per seat. If you want to go quick buy all seats. If want to deviate off the route barter hard. Do not pay more than $25 T&T for an off-route trip within Port of Spain (less than 5 miles). At night...
