Itinerary Overview

We arrived on December 7th to port of Spain, Trinidad and spent one night in a Hotel close to the airport. The next morning we took a short flight to Tobago and enjoyed to views from the plane. In Tobago we spent 2 weeks in an Air BnB and mainly enjoyed the beaches.

The second part we spent in Trinidad on a farm we found via wwoof Online.

In the area close to the Farm, Moruga we didnt meet any other tourists throughout our stay which we certainly enjoyed very much.

One of the highlights was the completely empty beach in walking distance to the farm.  

 The locals were very welcoming and everyone greeted us in a very friendly manner.

We made it a point to try all the local food and every homemade hotsauce we could find. It appears everybody has their own favorite recipe in slight variations of more garlic, culantro, limejuice and peppers.
