Some Info

The small island has a rich history with the first human settlement around 4000 BCE. Christopher Columbus found Trinidad in 1498. Through the centuries, the island has been inhabited by native Amerindians, Spaniards, British, French, African, Pirates & Chinese merchants.

Trinidad is the southernmost island in the Caribbean and lies a few miles off the northeastern coast of Venezuela.

There is a wide range of ethnicities, religions, and cultures.

We have almost all the Holidays the world has to offer. We celebrate everything!!!

Our Biggest Event Carnival

The Road to Carnival unofficially starts January 1st every year and ends on Ash Wednesday. To some the notion that carnival ends is ludacris.

There are numerous cultural events and parties that lead up to the street parade on Carnival Monday and Tuesday.

Trinidad and Tobago Carnival is also celebrated in several cities across the world. These celebrations include Toronto’s Caribana, Houston Carifest, London’s Notting Hill Carnival, New York City’s Labor Day Carnival & Miami’s Miami Carnival.

The featured music are Soca, Calypso and Steelpan(Steel Drum).

The island loves to drink. Believe it or not being a non-drinker is somewhat taboo.

The events are crazy with scantily clad men and women and is not recommended for the faint hearted.
