While the twin-island country of Trinidad and Tobago is just six miles from South America, it has the finest parts of Caribbean culture. It's the birthplace of such Caribbean icons as the steel-pan drum, calypso music, the limbo, and "shark and bake." Hotels in Trinidad and Tobago are a base for snorkeling, beach lounging, exploring colonial forts, and admiring the bird life of the mangroves. You can hike through the rain forest or indulge in a spa treatment at one of the finest Trinidad and Tobago resorts. If spending your days on these two islands in the sun sounds delightful, book your vacation and go!
Trinidad and Tobago are fraternal twins, with Trinidad being the larger of the two. Trinidad's landscape includes rain forests, hills, and wetlands; city-wise, it holds the nation's capital: the Port of Spain. Attractions there include the National Museum and Queens Park Savannah, a large urban park that's home to the Emperor Valley Zoo and Royal Botanic Garden. Trinidad's most popular beach is Maracas Bay, with pristine sand and a verdant mountain backdrop. Hotels in Trinidad near Chaguanas put you near Caroni Swamp, mangrove wetlands where you'll spot the beautiful scarlet ibis, the national bird of Trinidad and Tobago. With a wider selection child-friendly resorts and attractions, Trinidad is ideal for families.
Tobago more closely resembles a postcard image of the Caribbean with white, sandy beaches lined with palms and the crumbling, 18th-century Fort King George guarding the entrance to its main town of Scarborough. Its fine hotels offer couples a romantic escape. Another prime destination for seeing wildlife is the tiny island of off Tobago's Northeastern coast: Little Tobago. The shallow waters separating it from Tobago are renowned for snorkeling, and glass-bottom boat tours showcase its colorful marine life.
