Trinidad, my birthplace and home, is not the typical Caribbean island. While we have beaches, forests, waterfalls, nightlife and so on, the presence of oil and gas has led to us not having a very strong tourism focus. As a result, you will not find many of the common tourist trappings that you will find in most of the other Caribbean islands here. The tourist setting, however, is very prevalent in our sister isle, Tobago.
As is the case in many countries, there are societal ills which exist here in Trinidad and they are displayed prominently in all forms of media. Despite our challenges, however, Trinidad is still my home which I love and I want to share some of its wonderful secrets with you, starting with its food. The photos below highlight some of the scenes while guests are on our food tours. They reflect an island which, just like the photos themselves, is non-filtered and non-pretentious. You visit Trinidad and you instantly enter its soul; no pretty facade or window dressing. I hope these images encourage you to appreciate my country for what it is so when you visit, you will feel more like a local rather than a tourist.
You can be part of the experience as well. Simply visit our home page for a list of our fun food tours and book the one you would like to experience.
