Wondering if it is safe / efficient to rent a small car (likely from the POS airport) to venture around the island? I only have 2 days, and was thinking about heading 30 min out of town to Maracas Bay.
How are road conditions?
Local law enforcement?
Rates of car theft?
Traffic in POS?
Ease of navigation?

Hi dear all,
I'm traveling with my 2 lady friends coming June (14days) to spain.
We will be landing at Barcelona, then travel to Madrid and Andulucia, then back to barcelona again for our return flight.
As this is the 1st tiem we are traveling to Spain, any recommendations on:
1) Good, clean, convenient budget hostels/apt/hotels
2) Places to visit in these 3 cities (each city we will stay around 4 days) nature/shopping/architectures- What are the must not miss places to go?
3)Is it convenient to travel by train to these 3 cities? How much will it roughly cost to book a train ticket from Barcelona->madrid->andulucia->Barcelona(sevilla). is there return train tickets available for within 14 days' travel?
4)I understand there's free entry to various museums/toursim sites..is there any website i can know which day/timing can we go in for free?(we are on a budget you see...)
Thank you so much in advance :)

A friend and i will be visiting Port of Spain in March 2007 for the cricket world cup, nearly all of the hotels are fully booked already and one of the only ones I could find was the Sundeck Suites. Its in the town centre on Picton street. Does anybody have any views on this hotel? What is the area like, because I've heard that some parts can be quite rough. Is it safe to be walking the streets at night.
My husband and I along with two other couples will be in Port-of-Spain in January 2007 arriving on the Regal Princess. We are interested in a city tour, along with any other places that we can squeeze into a day. We would like to find an English speaking private tour guide to take us around while we are there. Does any one have a name of someone who does this? Any help will be appreciated! Thank in advance, Lu

Grr.... this is not travel related, but can anyone suggest an online website, safe and secure, where I can buy a CD of the best test innings of Brian Lara. Or can anyone send it to me..i'll pay them for it!!!!!!!
I'm going to be in Port of Spain from May 29-June 2 for a conference being held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in downtown -- but I don't want to stay at a big chain hotel or pay the big hotel prices. I'd rather find a local guesthouse or small locally run hotel (or even resort). I don't really know what's available. I would like something within walking distance of the Crowne Plaza, or easily accessible on public transport. Can anyone recommend any place?
Also, are there good places to visit around the island if I extend my stay? Where is a good place on the island to spend a couple days (out of Port of Spain)?

I'll be stopping over in Port of Spain for one night. Does anyone have any recommendations about where to stay? Cheap and safe is all I'm looking for.
I once found a forum in the net that was hosted by some Trini company, and it was full of locals discussing local matters. You know, something like a NY based forum populated by New Yorkers. Now that I'm going back to Trinidad I'm searching for some inside info on local events - does anyone know the web address of this or a similar forum?
how can i get a free road map of trinidad?
