As soon as you step off the plane at Piarco Airport (POS), just 15 miles east of Port of Spain, you're met with balmy air and the distant sound of steel drums that welcome you to this island jewel and big sister to nearby Tobago.
Accommodation here is varied, but dominated by large luxury hotel complexes. For something a little different, there are many holiday homes for rent. Most have private pools and would suit large groups or families.
The hotels are also home to most of the entertainment on the island, though the bigger towns and resorts all have their own nightclubs, which are hugely popular after midnight.
Hotels also dominate the restaurant scene, but make sure you set out to explore as you'll no doubt find some amazing dining experiences off the beaten track. Corn soup, for instance, is a local speciality that you can get from some of the food stands that dot the island. Other delicacies to seek out are saheena and the delicious “bake and shark”.
The beaches are undoubtedly the star attractions in Trinidad and you're certainly spoiled for choice. The most popular beaches are on the north coast, where Maracas Bay dominates, but a good alternative would be Las Cuevas Bay where small coves offer privacy and shelter.
However, Grande Riviere beach in the north-east is considered the best on the island. Long, sweeping sands and great snorkelling shallows sit happily near a river that's perfect for kayaking. There's also a café and changing hut with shower facilities. Grande Riviere is also a good starting point for some forest hikes if you get bored of sunbathing and splashing about in the sea.
Other popular island activities include a coast-to-coast drive, which takes in some wonderful Caribbean scenery and might just open up a whole new adventure. Sporty types will no doubt be drawn to the local passion for football and cricket, but motocross, cycling, basketball and power boat racing are all enthusiastically regarded as participation sports.
On a slower-paced note, one of the real delights of Trinidad is the hummingbirds, and there's no finer place to witness their majestic agility than at Yerette in Maracas, which is the home of a bird enthusiast who has opened his house so that visitors can view these feathered wonders.
