      13 year old flying on their own from Canada to Trinidad

      Trinidad and Tobago May 3, 2014 at 12:35 PM

      My daughter is going to be visiting a family friend in August. I'm wondering if there is at all a possibility that she might have problems once she arrives at the Trinidad Airport. My parents are concerned that she could be turned away for some reason. They want to know what I would do then. I would go insane if anything at all happened to her at the airport and I wasn't there to help.
      Also does anyone thing that she is too young to go there own her own? Her dad's side of the family lives there. She will be meeting siblings and possibly her dad (if she decides she wants to once she's there). Plus the one I'm sending her to, is someone I trust very much.
      Any advice or info you may have about a young one traveling on their own, would be greatly appreciated.
      Just so you know, she has traveled on her own since she was 6 (in canada), so she is very comfortable with all the procedures.
      Thank you for taking the time to read this, and hopefully responding. :)
      Taylor (the mom) ;)

    • Need visa to transit for 2 hour wait ?

      Trinidad Apr 18, 2014 at 1:42 PM

      In Port of Spain airport do you need a visa in order to transit there? It is only 1-2 hour wait till the next flight. In the past they stop me and also have let me through even without visa. I want an answer set on stone for this.

      Budget Accommodations North End of Tobago?

      Trinidad and Tobago Mar 18, 2014 at 10:31 PM

      Hello All,

      Looks like a nice site. I'm glad to be here!

      I have to travel to Trinidad for work and want to make a side Tobago for some SCUBA diving. I am hoping one of you fine people can offer suggestions for budget-friendly accommodations on the northern end of the island, where the more interesting diving seems to be. I'm open to any other suggestions as well, as I've never been to the area.

      Thanks in advance!

    • hotels / guesthouses in Port of Spain

      Trinidad Oct 12, 2013 at 1:42 AM

      I am looking at staying in the Port of Spain area from Dec. 31, 2013 to Jan 2, 2014. There will be 4 adults and our budget is about $100-$150 for the room per night. We have short-listed the hotels to the following: The Gingerbread House, Forty Winks Inn, and Inn at 87.

      So far, it seems that Gingerbread and 87 are our frontrunners as Forty Winks seems to be East of Charlotte Street. I have read that East of Charlotte Street and the 'jungle streets' of Port of Spain are not as safe.

      Thoughts and experience would be much appreciated. Or if you have any other accommodation suggestions, that would be great. Thanks in advance!

      Renting a car.

      Port-of-Spain Oct 5, 2013 at 8:36 AM

      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?


    • accommodations

      Trinidad and Tobago Sep 11, 2013 at 12:26 PM

      Hello, Everyone! We are looking for accommodations in Trinidad and also in Tobago for 4 adults.

      We thought apartment rentals or self-catered apartments would be the most budget and best value option. However, we're open to hotel suggestions, or any other living arrangement suggestions. We were hoping to spend between $100 to $150 per night.

      Any suggestions on areas to stay in? We're pretty active, love activity (ie. hiking, exploring, nightlife, ecotourism), etc., and also enjoy the beach and relaxation.

      I presume that the islands are small enough to get around that it would make the most sense to stay in one place, and drive to the various parts of the islands to check it out. We would get one place in Trinidad, and another in Tobago.

      Thanks in advance!

      Hello I am a UK citizen and I am hoping to come to Trinidad & Tobago for an unforseen amout of time, the reason for this is that I am travelling all winter and my return ticket is for May 9th when I will fly back to England for the summer. I will be flying back to the UK from Miami, USA. I am in Panama city, Panama at the moment and I hope to fly to Port of Spain on the 14th February. When I asked questions about flying to TT in Panama they asked me did I have an onward flight ticket, I said I dont need one because I have my Miami ticket back home also when I get to Trinidad I can make up mind how I want to get back to Miami. I am hoping to visit a good few of the Caribbean Islands on the way but I dont want to have to book onward tickets as I might want to stay longer in various places. I am a pensioner and I have adequate funds to do trips like this every winter, my question is ..... do I have to book an onward flight from TT or is my Miami return ticket okay. Bob Smith
