Overview

The Rough Guide to Trinidad and Tobago is the definitive guide to the most exciting and unexplored of the Caribbean islands. The full-colour section introduces the islands’ diverse highlights from tropical bird watching in Northern Trinidad and the secluded wave-whipped sand at Tobago’s Pirates bay, to hiking in the forested peaks of the Northern range. This updated fourth edition gives expert background on everything from exotic wildlife to Trinidad’s flamboyant pre-Lenten Carnival celebrations. You’ll find detailed coverage of Trinidad’s best hikes, where to watch turtles laying eggs and sample the island’s delicious cuisine, as well as an appraising rundown of what to do in Tobago, Trinidad’s more tourist-oriented sister isle. The Contexts section provides informed coverage of the islands’ history, politics and current affairs, as well as the low-down on soca, calypso and steelpan, religion, fauna and flora, and books, while the patois glossary unpicks local slang. This guide comes complete with clear maps and practical information on accommodation and transportation; and recommendations of all the best places for eating, drinking, and music.

The Rough Guide to Trinidad & Tobago is like having a local friend plan your trip!
