Tobago: 5 places to visit on vacation

 Tobago is the smaller island of two Caribbean islands called Trinidad and Tobago. I am a born citizen of Trinidad and once a year my sisters and I visit this little paradise. You can get to the island either by boat or plane. We always travel by boat because, the scenery is far more beautiful and exciting than traveling by plane. It took us one hour to get there. We got off the boat in Scarborough. The boat harbor is situated here.

Adventure to Peechon Cove

I have lived in Trinidad and Tobago all my life and I have yet to discover all of its interesting places. Peechon Cove is one such place; a hidden gem among the many hiking spots on the island. Until a few weeks ago, I did not know such a place existed! My adventure to Peechon Cove started with a long drive along Trinidad’s North Coast Road, then a visit to Maracas Bay for refreshments before arriving at the hiking trail. The trail is located within the Maracas Forest which features exotic vegetation and many tropical insects. The trail leads to an isolated inlet which boasts picturesque turquoise water, a pebbly beach, and cool sea breezes. This inlet is called Peechon Cove.

Why Tobago?

Trinidad and Tobago, the southern most islands of the Caribbean archipelago, offer the perfect blend of sun, sand and sea and is every eco-tourist’s dream. For us Trinis, (those of us born in Trinidad), Tobago is our go to holiday spot no matter the time of year. Whether it’s for a relaxing getaway, a glamorous wedding or a fantastic beach party, Tobago never fails to deliver on fun-filled, memorable moments that leave you coming back for more, which is why the United Nations has dubbed it “The Happiest Island in the Caribbean.”

Conquering Paria the Perilous & Turtle Rock: Trinidad and Tobago

Welcome to the hike to Paria Waterfalls (or what I like to call Paria, the Perilous) as we journey from the Leather Back Turtle’s nesting beach in Matura to Paria Bay and then further into the woods to find the Paria Waterfalls…all located in the most southerly island of the Caribbean, Trinidad and Tobago.
