A brief intro to Trinidad Carnival
Trinidad and Tobago Carnival – Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago
The vigor and flair of the Caribbean take center stage at Trinidad and Tobago’s annual carnival – a swashbuckling display that starts at 4am on the first day (J’ouvert) as revelers gather for what once was a rebellion against slavery.
Step into your carnival costume, treat your tummy to some of the delicious grub sold from roadside vendors and nod your head to the melodic rhythms of the many steel pan bands on the streets. Give yourself a few days of rest once the mayhem subsides in Port of Spain, with a trip to nearby Tobago, where pristine waters and sedate beaches offer a welcome respite.
