Best Time To Visit: January to May offer ideal sailing conditions with clear skies and no rain.
Key Cruising Areas: Trinidad and Tobago are an ideal start for a cruise through the nearby Windward and Leeward Islands.
Don’t Miss: The Caroni Bird Sanctuary. Motor through mangroves in small boats where you will see crabs and oysters. Fish and snakes nestle into the trees and the swamp is filled with incredible birds including sandpipers, egrets, and anhingas to name but a few. The highlight is the amazing scarlet ibis – take an evening tour to see the ibis glide in to roost in the trees.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The rich culture and international influences mean that you can find almost any cuisine and every variation within them in Trinidad and Tobago. De Avenue in the Port of Spain is lined with bars and restaurants, many of excellent quality. For a change of pace, head downtown from the waterfront to Chaud. Tucked behind the Botanic Gardens the thoughtfully presented food is the best of Trinidadian fine dining, try the geera-crusted kingfish with tomato choka.
