Trinidad and Tobago may be sister islands, but perhaps they were separated at birth because the pair’s differences greatly outweigh the similarities. Trinidad is the much more developed of the islands, with a strong emphasis on business which makes this island one of the wealthiest in the Caribbean, but not the most easy going or relaxing. For a more traditional island experience, visitors should head to Tobago which is much more laid back and less developed, making it home to some of the nation’s prettiest views. It also provides plenty of open space for those wanting to explore the rainforests, take a hike, or bike around the island.

All of these distinctions can be thrown off the boat when Pre-Lenten carnival rolls around. The islands erupt into a frenzy of dazzling colours, up beat steel drum music accompanied by the swishing of beads on the clothes of women dancing in the streets, and the wondrous aromas of cooking food. Traffic lights are turned off and people, locals and visitors alike, take to the streets for a dancing riot of music and splendour that lasts as long as your feet allow.
