Trinidad and Tobago
Private jet charter to Trinidad and Tobago
The twin-island republic of Trinidad and Tobago is a land of vibrant contrasts – the larger island of Trinidad is a bustling multicultural melting-pot with buzzing nightlife, while tiny Tobago is a laidback paradise of unspoilt landscapes and outstanding diving opportunities. Thanks to a burgeoning oil and gas industry, there’s much less of a tourist drive here than in other Caribbean destinations, leaving visitors to explore unfettered rather than ensconcing themselves in gated all-inclusive resorts. Charter a private jet to Trinidad and Tobago.
Capital city Port of Spain is located on the northwest coast of Trinidad, the larger of the two islands. This diverse urban hub, a hotchpotch of old and new where thronging bazaars and ornate mosques jostle with modern skyscrapers, hosts the country’s raucous carnival on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. During the annual extravaganza, revellers in colourful costumes dance to calypso and soca rhythms as flamboyant floats pass by.
Away from the hubbub of the city, visitors can unwind on the beautiful beaches of Trinidad’s north coast, where powdery sands are hemmed by emerald water against a backdrop of forest-cloaked hills. Sunbathe on palm-dotted Maracas Bay, explore the caves of Las Cuevas Bay and look out for leatherback sea turtles on Blanchisseuse Beach. Further inland you can hike through tropical rainforests, swim in cascading waterfalls and discover lush wetlands teeming with wildlife.
Diminutive sister island Tobago offers a much gentler pace of life than its brash big brother. Here the coastline is dotted with charming fishing villages and hidden coves, while spectacular coral reefs draw divers from around the world in search of graceful manta rays and brightly-coloured fish. Buccoo Reef is an idyllic diving spot, where you can stop for cocktails at a floating bar while wading through the warm waters.
Both islands are a twitcher’s paradise, with world-class birdwatching opportunities in several magnificent nature reserves. The Asa Wright Nature Centre in the biodiverse Arima Valley is home to hundreds of different species, while a boat trip to the Caroni Swamp is a rare opportunity to watch flocks of scarlet ibis nest in the mangrove.
Unsurprisingly given the country’s multicultural population and colonial past, Trinidad and Tobago’s cuisine is influenced by an array of cultures including African, Creole, Spanish, French and English. Callaloo is a popular dish made from okra, taro leaves, coconut milk and spices and served with crab, sweet potatoes or dumplings. Other popular foods include curry, fresh seafood, rice and local fruits and vegetables such as plantain and cassava.
