Where: Let’s go Trinidad and Tobago
Far away in the West Indies there lies the southernmost twin island state of Trinidad and Tobago. Undeniably, Trinidad is the “Manhattan” of the Caribbean stimulating international business investment in public and private sectors. Tobago is more laid back but the idyllic dream of a corporate paradise with little to zero hassle or hustle. The energy in the city is phenomenal. If not the only, this is the most multiethnic Caribbean society in its hemisphere. The history of its people depicts a tale of battles for colonial power and ownership. Today, the country is an independent Caricom state dominating powerful interests in oil and gas territories governed by the first ever female Prime Minister and coalition government politics in the Caribbean. Don’t worry you’ll fit right in, just take a look at a line from our national anthem, “Here every creed and race shall find an equal place.”
Sooo many choices:
This island was formerly part of the beautiful Amazon jungle. The topography is sculpted with lush mountains, forests, cascading waterfalls, tranquil mangroves, rivers, brown sugar cane sandy beaches and picturesque bird sanctuaries. The beauty and bounty of these islands will sweep you of your feet and take your breath away.
Menu? Tantalize those taste buds
This melting pot brews the most exotic food from gourmet dining to road side hot spots tantalizing your taste buds with a frenzy of dishes from our rich culture and interracial heritage. Just ask host and food extraordinaire of Bizarre foods, Andrew Zimmerman. The gastronomy is mind blowing enticing visitors with the national dish pelau, a one pot meal that reflects the kaleidoscope of the people who came. Tobago, the sister isle lures you with crab and dumpling another mouthwatering delicacy. Bake and shark, doubles, corn soup, callaloo, dhal and rice, roti and pastelle are just a few more signature temptations to tease your sense of taste and leave you yearning for more.
Wedding theme? I hope you can keep up
There are the typical options; beach, rainforest, church wedding but what if you can do so much more. The cultural and spiritual background of Trinidad and Tobago caters to you.
