The Colors of Trinidad and Tobago
6/19/2014 4:17:12 PM

The nation of Trinidad and Tobago is a cultural crayon box of different peoples. Even the names of its cities – Guayaguayare, Pointe-Pierre, Charlotteville and San Fernando, for example – reflect a mix of languages and historical influences. Trinidad and Tobago are the two primary islands of the nation, with most of the population living on Trinidad. Trinidadians may trace their heritage from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Carib Indians. English is the official language, though some Trinidadians also speak other languages.

Trinidad and Tobago is renowned for its pre-Lenten Carnival celebration. An observance with roots in medieval Europe has become an elaborate street festival marked by lively music, dancing, costumes and exotic entertainment. Other religious and cultural holidays also bring out public festivities throughout the year.

Nature lovers and introspective travelers can enjoy the serene aspects of Trinidad and Tobago’s nature centers and sanctuaries, as well as its mountains, forests, waterfalls and beaches. You’ll never get bored between hiking, sunbathing, snorkeling, surfing, flora and fauna watching, fishing, sporting, boating, cave exploring or any other recreational options. There are also many museums of the islands’ artworks, historical artifacts and buildings.

Is your stomach growling by now? Trinidad and Tobago’s cuisine comes from all over the world. One of the nation’s popular foods is “doubles,” a chickpea sandwich. Indian, African, Creole and Chinese food, seafood, spices and condiments all dot the landscape of the Trinidadian menu. With so many opportunities, you must give ample time to both islands to get the full experience of your trip.
