    Staying in Castara it is quite easy to cook food yourself, for longer stay.

    Small shops are open almost daily , at different time.

    For a better grocery you have to take the local bus to scarborough..quite along experience!

    From central Castara, walking along the local stadium, then a 20minutes walk in the forest along the river.

    Have good shoes as you have to cross the river on slipery rocks.

    There have a nice refreshing bath in the falls

    Good position on beach but no menu with prices which if one wants to be charitable could explain why Vera's prices vary not only from day to day but also from customer to customer. If you are new to rotis you will probably enjoy them here, but if you have experienced better as for example as served by the Pancake House you will see how stodgy they are.

    If you are really hungry a handy tip is to ask a local to buy for you.... marked price difference. (Yes I visit Castara regularly).

    Hard to compare prices given they vary however 100$TT, paid by friends 2 years ago, for a couple of small pieces of chicken and handful of chips was definitely more expensive than average.

Castara Nightlife

  • by xanderd Written Apr 22, 2008

    D Lime is a local bar which is currently the most popular place in the small fishing village of castara.

    At first we didnt know what to expect as there are lots of locals 'hanging around' outisde, and if youre not of carribean origin yourself you will stand out as being an obvious tourist. However, the place couldnt have been friendlier. The people of castara embrace the relatively few tourists they meet and locals were coming to our table to 'lime' with us (talking/hanging out).

    We were surprised to find we could help ourselves to drinks from the bars fridge, and pay at the end of the evening, with the barman having miraculously kept track of everything we'd taken.

    This bar is small but has a great friendly atmosphere and tyhe chance to meet other tourists and local residents of castara so dont be shy! Prices were about 7TT (70p UK) for a bottle of Carib lager, or you could even buy bottles of spirits to take to your table and spend the evening drinking! (about 25TT / £2.50 per quarter bottle of black label trinidad rum).

    Dress Code: Anything you want!
