Fodor's Caribbean Cruise Ports of Call
Plan Your Trinidad and Tobago Vacation
These lush islands lay claim to being the economic powerhouse of the Caribbean. Vast oil and gas reserves have led to a high standard of living, where tourism is not the mainstay of the economy. Indeed, the word tourist is seldom mentioned here; the preference is for the much friendlier visitor. On Trinidad, the best beaches are on the north coast, with peach sand, clean blue-green water, and the forest-covered Northern Range as a backdrop. On Tobago, tourism is much more a part of the island's economy, and you can find excellent resorts and facilities.
