About Tobago

Tobago is the smaller of the two main islands that make up the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. It is located in the southern Caribbean Sea, northeast of the island of Trinidad and southeast of Grenada. The island lies outside the hurricane belt.

Tobago is a haven for those seeking the quintessential Caribbean vacation with cozy resorts, picture-postcard beaches and a stunning marine environment.

Tobago is the destination for divers. It is a small island and compared to many other Caribbean Island destinations, it is visited by relatively few divers making it very pristine and untouched. It is a great destination for the beginner and very advanced diver alike. Sites range from gently sloping coral reefs to stunning vertical rock faces covered with encrusting sponges, gorgonians and stony corals. These sites support a wide range of life, most notably the stingrays, eagle rays, hawksbill turtles, and nurse sharks. On the smaller end of the scale you will find cherubfish, flameback angelfish, and sea horses.

The south end of this tiny island is the quieter, shallower area while the north end experiences the Guyana Current creating intense and exciting drift dives. These drift dives are fantastic. Large shoals of grunt and snapper create a swirl of moving color. Green morays, nurse sharks, turtles and the occasional whale shark complete the dream dive.

AIR TRAVEL: TRINIDAD-TOBAGO AIRBRIDGE

There is a regular air service, or air bridge, between Trinidad and Tobago. This service is run by Caribbean Airlines, Trinidad and Tobago's national air service provider.


If you are travelling to Tobago via the air bridge it is important to note that during peak periods (Easter weekend, Plymouth Jazz Festival in April and Great Race weekend in August) the service is often over subscribed and it is possible to face long delays, even when holding a confirmed ticket.

Entry Requirements

Business travellers and tourists must produce passports valid for three months longer than the intended stay and a return ticket, for entry into Trinidad and Tobago. For tourism and business related visits of up to 90 days, visas are not required for citizens of the United States, Caricom (except Haiti), European Union and British Commonwealth with the exception of the following countries:

European Union

* Czech Republic
* Estonia
* Hungary
* Latvia
* Lithuania
* Poland
* Slovakia
* Slovenia

British Commonwealth Countries

* Australia
* Cameroon
* India
* Mozambique
* New Zealand
* Nigeria
* Papua New Guinea
* South Africa
* Sri Lanka
* Tanzania
* Uganda

Travellers from countries outside the United States and European Union must hold a passport valid for six months past their travel date, a return ticket and valid visa for entry into Trinidad and Tobago. Applications for entry visas must be submitted to a Trinidad and Tobago Mission abroad or where there is no office, to a British Embassy or Consulate in a non-Commonwealth country.

Trinidad - Tobago Airbridge

There is a regular air service, or air bridge, between Trinidad and Tobago, with the first of roughly 12 daily flights leaving Piarco International Airport at 6am. This service is run by Caribbean Airlines, Trinidad and Tobago's national air service provider.

Flights on the air bridge cost US$24 one way or US$48 return. Return tickets for children under the age of 12 cost US$24. You can purchase tickets online or at the airport counter.

If you are travelling to Tobago via the air bridge it is important to note that during peak periods (Easter weekend, Plymouth Jazz Festival in April and Great Race weekend in August) the service is often over subscribed and it is possible to face long delays, even when holding a confirmed ticket.

Visitor Information and Tips

General Climate

Trinidad & Tobago has two main seasons - the dry season, from January to May and the wet or rainy season, from June to December. In the rainy season, mornings are usually sunny, followed by rainy afternoons and fair nights. During this time, the general rainfall pattern is interrupted by days of brilliant sunshine. This is similar to what temperate climes know as Indian Summer and offers a warm, invigorating change from dull weather. This mini-break normally happens between mid September to mid October.

Hotel Tax

This tax of 10% is standard to all hotels and guesthouses in T&T. In addition, hotels may add on their own service and utility fees or security deposits - but this depends on the provider. The best way to find out about these fees are from your hotel or guesthouse directly.

Value Added Tax

Value Added Tax, or VAT, is a 15% tax added to goods and services. The prices displayed in stores usually includes this tax, unless otherwise stated. Companies registered to charge VAT, must prominently display their Certificate of Registration. Information booklets on VAT are available at the VAT Administration Centre, 20 St. Vincent Street, Port of Spain, or any VAT Regional Office. Call 623-4735 or 4737 for more information.

Postal Service

Trinidad and Tobago's Postal Service provider, TT Post, offers an array of services to suit your every need, from express couriers to bill payments and greeting cards. Most TT Post branches also offer for sale a range of special collector stamps. Call 800-POSTT to find out more about TT Post’s services.

Communication

With two very competitive cellular phone service providers in Trinidad and Tobago - Digicel and the Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT) – it’s easy to remain connected to the loved ones you left at home. TSTT also provides telecommunications infrastructure that features state-of-the-art digital technology and fibre optic systems capable of supporting a wide range of services, including wireless, so bring along your Blackberry. Both companies also provide roaming facilities.

Pre-paid calling cards

If you prefer to control your telephone costs, prepaid phone cards for landline (Companion Cards) and mobile phones (Bmobile and DIGICEL Cards) are available for sale at Customer Service Centres and other vendors throughout the islands.

Internet

Even if you decide to leave your laptop at home, sending and receiving e-mail, chatting online or surfing the World Wide Web is simple and cheap.
Internet cafes are very popular in T&T and some of the more sophisticated cafes offer the option of Web-Cams. Internet access is also free at all public libraries.

Language

The official language of Trinidad and Tobago is English, although we do have segments of the population, which, mostly through culture and heritage, speak other languages, including "patois", a slang version of French that provides a window to our island's former French colonial days.

Electricity

You’ll need an adaptorfor your appliances. Electricity: 110/220 volts AC, 60Hz. Plugs are the 2 flat pin type, as in the USA. Most accommodation has air conditioning - if not, there are usually fans.

Driving

Visitors in possession of valid licenses issued in U.S., Canada, France, U.K., Germany and the Bahamas may drive for up to three months. International licenses are also accepted. Driving is on the left side of the road.

Car rental agencies are located in Port of Spain, San Fernando and at Piarco International Airport. International rental agency presence at airport. All major credit cards are accepted.

Crime

Tourists to Trinidad & Tobago find it a relatively safe destination. Authorities deal with crime against tourists very seriously - thefts from tourists are deterred by heavy jail sentences. Islanders are a warm and respectful people - but whatever country you visit, there’s always an element of crime.
Exercise the same caution you would in your own hometown. Keep your money and valuables safe. Don’t leave your bag and camera on an empty beach while you go for a swim. Be sensible. Generally, you can walk around, day or night, and not be looking over you shoulder.
