Prepare to be dazzled by a blaze of colors and calypso music the moment you set foot in Trinidad. A real metropolis, this charming island offers an exciting mix of modern hustle and bustle and the laid-back Caribbean attitude.

Visit Port-of-Spain, the bustling capital city of Trinidad and one of the busiest harbors in the Caribbean. Explore the 200 acres of Queen Savannah's Park, complete with soccer, cricket, and rugby fields. See the famous pink and blue Queen's Royal College and the clock tower. Nearby stands Whitehall, a former private mansion that served as headquarters for the United States during World War II. Walk a short distance to visit the National Museum and Art Gallery, which presents an impressive exhibit of work by Trinidad artists. Browse the Central Market for an array of colorful wares including silk, crafts, liquors, and the famous Trinidad spices.

Known to locals by names such as "The Greatest Show on Earth" and "The World's Most Colorful Festival," the Carnival in Trinidad presents a spectacle of dazzling colors, costumes, and parties including Caribbean Moko Jumbie dancers. Beginning right after Christmas, the celebration lasts until Ash Wednesday with festivities raging to the sound of soca music. Book your ticket early to one of the all inclusive parties where thousands of people gather for food, drink, and some wild dancing.

One of the most popular attractions in Trinidad, the Asa Wright Nature Centre presents a lovely 200 acres of plants, trees, and flowers. Find over 200 species of birds including the rare blue-crowned motmot and the nocturnal oilbird. Take a guided hike through the foliage or bird-watch from the inn's veranda. For another birding spot, visit the Caroni Bird Sanctuary, a large swamp bordered by mangrove trees and full of waterways. Look for the scarlet ibis, Trinidad's national bird.

A must see for tourists, the Point Galera Lighthouse stands to the island's northeast. Constructed on a cliff in 1897, it still actively warns ships in the distance. Nearby lie several lovely beaches, ready for swimming and tanning.
