Trinidad and Tobago

Hailed as the true Caribbean, the dual-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago offers a very unique holiday experience found nowhere else.
On this holiday we will experience the best of both islands, starting with smaller island of Tobago  - a relaxing tropical paradise where time almost stands still.  Beautiful beaches, active coral reefs and lush rainforests with exotic flora and fauna make Tobago a nature lover’s dream.  During our stay here we will enjoy a full island tour and a glass-bottom boat adventure, which will show off the island’s endless beauty.  Our hotel for our 6 nights in Tobago will be the Coco Reef Resort & Spa - a perfect combination of Old World charm and modern amenities.  The private white sand beach (with its specially built lagoon that serves as a tranquil swimming area) is one of the best on the island. You can choose from a range of water sports, book a spa treatment, or simply relax by the pool. Excellent local cuisine is available in the onsite restaurant.  Comfortable guestrooms include a balcony or terrace.

We then take a short flight back to the “big” island of Trinidad for an 8-night stay in the bustling capital of Port of Spain. This exciting city hosts the famous Carnival Festival, offers great restaurants and shopping, popular Cricket matches, historic buildings layered within a multicultural setting and homegrown calypso attitude.   While in Trinidad our touring will include a city tour of Port of Spain, a breath-taking coastal drive and beach excursion, renowned wildlife sanctuaries, a cultural tour highlighting the island’s strong Indian influences, and an evening “Panyard” visit to experience the original steel drum music the country is passionately dedicated to.  In Trinidad we stay at the Hilton Port of Spain, ideally situation in the hills overlooking the city. The hotel features all the amenities of a First-Class Hilton hotel, including a restaurant, bar, gift shop, room service, pool, tennis court and fitness room. Guestrooms are modern and include a private balcony.
