Why Trinidad and Tobago is the Next Best Caribbean Destination

Posted on June 30, 2014

Now trending: Trinidad and Tobago as the ultimate vacation destination. From going snorkeling at the beautiful coral reefs to bioluminescence tours, we know you want to try something different than the usual.

Hotels

Some of the hotels Trinidad and Tobago has to offer us are more interesting than most you would visit anywhere else in the Caribbean, because they’re not all the typical chain hotels. Two of our favorite hotels are Coco Reef Tobago and Castara Retreats; both boast great views of the ocean and an authentic experience.

Coco Reef Tobago features your classic old school design, which adds more of a tropical feeling that the resort already has. The views of the ocean and its white sand beach are exquisite, too.

As for Castara Retreats, it’s hands down one of our favorite places to stay at. It features several apartments that have breathtaking views of the ocean, and if you even happen to get tired of being at the beach, you can take a walk around the Retreats’ gardens.

Activities

Once every decade, the Ortoire River in Mayaro begins to glow, attracting hundreds of tourists from all around. The glow began in February, and it seems as if it’s going to vanish quite soon, so book your flight as soon as possible. In addition to that natural wonder, the turtle watching season in Trinidad and Tobago is from March to September. Over 12,000 leatherbacks migrate here just to lay their eggs every year.

Instead of taking that summer vacation you’ve been longing for — where everyone else goes — explore Trinidad and Tobago and experience something new.
