Trinidad & Tobago Top 12

Recently I was lucky enough to escape Old Man Winter’s mean chill on the ever-so tropical islands of Trinidad and Tobago.

In a desperate attempt to escape winter with little money to spend, I started searching day and night for cheap flights ANYWHERE on my go to cheap-flight website, Skyscanner. When I came across a great deal to the Port of Spain, I notified my research team (my boyfriend) and we did some digging and decided yes, this is somewhere we wanna go.

It was a lot different from other trips I have taken to the Caribbean in that I wasn’t at an all-inclusive resort with a team ready to cater to my every need, but this just made it all a little more exciting (and admittingly, a little more stressful at times). As always, everything worked out and we had a wonderful time on our semi-spontaneous Caribbean adventure.

Some of our favourite things we did on this trip were snorkelling at Buccoo Reef, driving around the mountainous island through a tropical rainforest, discovering beautiful beaches, eating fresh fish and local delicacies (like doubles, crab & dumplings and roti) and just relaxing in the sun/warmth at our welcoming guesthouse, the Seaside Garden.

We spent one day in the Port of Spain and the remaining six in Tobago (beaches man, gotta go for the beaches). I was extra camera happy on this trip and had a lot of fun taking pictures around the islands. Out of hundreds of photos, I’ve narrowed it down to 12 to share. As always, I welcome your comments and would love to hear what you think. Enjoy!
