Furthermore, most of the concerts and competitions are held from Christmas onwards.

How to Get around?

Piarco International Airport is the country’s major airport and it serves a number of international flights. For local commute, you may rent a car or simply hire a taxi. Government-owned buses and privately-owned mini-buses are available too. To reach the other island, one may board a private ferry from the Port of Spain or Scarborough. These ferries run daily and are cheap.

 

Accommodation Options

Travellers seeking luxury may opt for hotels such as The Villas at Stonehaven, Magdalena Grand Beach & Golf Resort, and Hyatt Regency Trinidad. Others can consider budget or mid-ranged hotels such as Chaconia Hotel, L’Orchidée Boutique Hotel, and The Cascadia Hotel and Conference Centre. They offer comfortable rooms and/or suites to the guests.

 

Safety during Carnival

Avoid carrying valuables, especially during the Carnival phase as you may end up losing costly things amidst the hectic festive atmosphere. Leave such stuff at the hotel. Carry your ID in the front pocket. Also, during the Carnival, carry water as the festival is held during summers. Drinking loads of fluids, applying sunscreen at regular intervals, and wearing comfortable shoes and light clothing is essential.
