The magnificent twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago is a colourful, lively and exciting place to take a holiday property, and with the growing numbers of cheap flights to Trinidad and Tobago, holidays here can be taken regularly, and not only once in a lifetime. Whether you are looking to rent self catering accommodation in Trinidad and Tobago for a sensational beach holiday or a peaceful holiday in lush tropical surroundings, there is a holiday here for everyone.
There is so much to do from a Trinidad and Tobago property that you would need many months to sample a bit of everything that there is to offer. However, on of the most notable events is the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival, which is often claimed in tourism circles to be the greatest cultural show on earth, and a delightful time to take self catering accommodation in Trinidad and Tobago as the islands come alive with the dance, music, art and the smell of mouth-watering food. However, all year round, there is always plenty of singing and dancing to see (and do), and a huge number of shops and restaurants in Trinidad and Tobago where you can get a taste for the authentic lifestyle of this beautiful country.
Of course, a huge amount of your holiday in a Trinidad and Tobago apartment will be spent on the beaches. The glorious white or pale pink sands which surround the island are simply ideal to relax on, soaking up the sun and the atmosphere, or to use as a base for swimming, sailing, surfing, snorkelling and learning the steel-pan drum! There are some challenging breaks for surfers staying in Trinidad and Tobago accommodation, and plenty to keep fishermen excited!
Nature lovers will love renting property in Trinidad and Tobago too. From the Leatherback Turtles nesting on the East Coast of Tobago to the barracudas, whale sharks, manta rays and dolphins which thrive in the caves, canyons and corals which make up the country’s shoreline. Inland, tropical forests and unspoilt swampland are the perfect locations for bird watching too.
Trinidad is the larger and noisier of the two islands. It is both the industrial and commercial centre of the Republic, with the Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago’s capital, leading the way.
However, it is the smaller of the town islands, Tobago, which is the largest draw for tourism. Tobago is the tranquil heart of Trinidad and Tobago, with blissfully quiet, pale pink beaches surround by the azure waters of the Caribbean. Tobago is a beautiful place to stay for nature lovers too, offering not only exceptional coral reefs, but the oldest piece of protected rainforest in the Western Hemisphere.
For sailors, Trinidad & Tobago are in easy reach of Venezuela, Grenada, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & Grenadines, Martinique and Dominica and other islands.
Average temperatures in Trinidad and Tobago are between 24°C and 26°C at any time of year. The dry season lasts from January until May, and the constant trade winds mean that windsurfers and sailors are happy all year round staying in Trinidad and Tobago apartments at any time of year.
Reaching your accommodation in Trinidad and Tobago is not as hard as many believe. Both Trinidad and Tobago have airports, Piarco International Airport (POS) and Crown Point International Airport (TAB) respectively. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic both run direct flights to Piarco from the UK.
