KEY EVENT Trinidad & Tobago Carnival: February 16-17 2015


‘Making mas’ when Trinidad’s streets burst with people, music, dancing and colour gotrinidadandtobago.com


My perfect itinerary would involve a trip to Port of Spain, for Carnival, the biggest street parade in Trinidad with an explosion of colourful costumes, music and dancing. Travel to Caroni Swamp, the second largest wetland mangrove on the island and home to national bird, the Scarlet Ibis. Visit Maracas Bay and taste the local dish ‘Bake n’ Shark’. ‘Down the Islands’ is a group of small islets between Trinidad and Venezuela, for basking on beaches, fishing and cave exploring on Gasparee Island. Check out one of the many Pan Yards around Port of Spain where locals practice on the Steel Pan. These often turn into popular night spots where fans can have a drink and listen to music. In Tobago, Pigeon Point beach is one of the most scenic and stunning. Rudolph Walker, OBE of EastEnders fame
