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.
