Trinidad & Tobago Adventure Guide 2nd Edition [Portable Document Format (PDF)]
eBook by Kathleen O'Donnell

eBook Category: Travel
eBook Description: Most Trinidad and Tobago guides (and there aren't many) assume you're there to sunbathe. A list of hotels, directions to the best beach, a brief mention of the bird sanctuaries in case you're into them, and that's that. O'Donnell and Pefkaros explore the adventurous side of the islands as well, with hiking and kayaking, mud volcanoes, water falls and swamps. They're beautiful, friendly islands and worth taking the time to get to know them well. Although definitely a part of the Caribbean, these two islands are unique, refusing to conform with the stock Caribbean image created by glossy brochures and travel agencies. They are both generous and Caribbean-spirited, but quite capable of going their own way. This Adventure Guide takes you across the nation from mountains and hills to grasslands, savannahs and palm-lined beaches, offering the intrepid traveler a ticket to explore. Birdwatchers are drawn by the chance to see the beautiful scarlet ibis. Night-time excursions allow visitors to watch the miraculous egg-laying practices of the leatherback turtle. And caiman--smaller versions of the South's alligators--are a common sight. And then there's Carnival, which offers wild dances, fantastical costumes and frenzied revellers. Whatever your reason to visit T&T, you have the right guide in hand. Accommodations, restaurants, travel tips, sights, museums, excursions--it's all here. A special section is dedicated to the nation's booming yachting industry, with details on marinas, facilities and services. [AVAILABLE ONLY IN ADOBE ACROBAT PDF FORMAT.]

I've been to TNT once for two weeks and am returning again in a few months. I bought the book to refresh my memory and, more importantly, get me excited about my return trip. It's a great read, and as the back cover suggests, it really is written for the traveler who wants to experience more than just sunbathing. However, once you've been to Trindad and Tobago, you discover that they are not your generic Caribbean islands. Visiting Trindad and Tobago is more of a cultural vacation than an island getaway. Once you step foot off the plane at Piarco airport, you'll never want to leave, or you'll want to go back once every year. The two islands are full of charisma, and O'Donnell and Pefkaros do a good job of capturing this spirit in the book. You really cannot be intimidated by the cultures of TNT. From the street vendor corn soup, to crab and dumplings, "down de islands", Maracas, Pigeon Point, Speyside, fried flying fish, Caribs, lorries, maxis, wining, Trinidad's great bar/club scene, the Northern Range, etc.--this book virtually covers all Trinidad and Tobago vacation opportunities and experiences.--Amazon.com review Although definitely a part of the Caribbean, these two islands are unique, refusing to conform with the stock Caribbean image created by glossy brochures and travel agencies.

The book fully describes the culture of these island people and this knowledge would make a trip to these wonderful islands even more enjoyable. I also believe it's a good choice for readers who can't make the trip but still want to taste the culture.--Amazon reviewer
