The eclectic culture island where exquisite nature meets exotic vibrancy
Trinidad is the culture capital of the Caribbean. This eclectic island is a fusion of ethnicities and cultures and one of the most exciting of all the Caribbean islands. Sway through the streets with the revellers of carnival, join the masquerade bands jumping up in their dazzling costumes and witness a steel band competition from the best seat in the house- right there in the heart of the action. Carnival in Trinidad is known as the biggest street party on earth, and is an unmissable blaze of colour, life and sheer joy.
Delve even further into Trinidad’s inimitable culture at the Indian Caribbean Museum, where the island’s East Indian and South Asian influences are celebrated and preserved. You can even taste the diversity of the island from the huge range of flavours on offer in the island’s eateries, traditional Caribbean to Indian and international fare.
To experience another side of Trinidad, take a trip to the Bush Bush Wildlife Sanctuary on the south east coast. Explore the Navira Swamp by kayak as the red howler monkey swings above and the blue and gold macaw sings its song. Many of the species you find here like the West Indian manatee, the anaconda and the capuchin monkey can be found on no other Caribbean island.
The north coast of the island is home to its Northern Range rainforest, and here you can venture 1,200ft into the mountains to visit the Asa Wright Nature Centre where butterflies and birds are king. Or, from capital Port of Spain, take the short trip to the Caroni Bird Sanctuary for a rare glimpse of the protected Trinidad Scarlet Ibis soaring above the swamps.
Trinidad is an island of contrasts, of exquisite nature and exotic vibrancy, blended together into one glorious Caribbean destination. Journey to Trinidad for the cultural adventure of a lifetime.
