International transportation

I flew Caribbean Airlines from Kingston (KIN) to Port of Spain (POS). I flew Caribbean Airlines from Port of Spain (POS) to Georgetown (GEO).

FOOD

Many local options are available throughout the city, as well as restaurants that cater more to tourists. Spanish food is the most common - I enjoyed some tasty croquettes!

PLUGS / ADAPTERS

Trinidad and Tobago use standard U.S. plugs - no adaptor needed!

VISA REQUIREMENTS

None for U.S. citizens. 

 

SAFETY

I was never out walking in Trinidad, but I felt safe whenever I took an Uber in the city. It probably would be smart to avoid walking alone at night, but during the daytime it is a relatively safe country.

SHOULD YOU VISIT?

I would! The country has a lot to offer. It is both Caribbean with beautiful beaches but also has modern cities like Port of Spain. There are many flights to Port of Spain from the U.S. daily. It is a unique place with lots to see!
