Trinidad Transportation on the Cheap

Story/Tip

Quote:
Getting around in Trinidad by public transport is an adventure all by itself. On first glimpse, the system appears to be confusing and downright chaotic, and it takes a bit of time to get used to. I studied in Trinidad for a few months, and it took me over two weeks to really get a good understanding of the public transportation network.I'm hoping that this review will help others who intend to visit the country, so that they can find their way around with greater ease than I did. The first thing that needs to be understood is that the system comprises of three main aspects: The route taxis, the maxi taxis and the PTSC buses.The Route Taxis:These are mainly cars or...Read More

Attraction | "Harry's Fun For Everyone!"

Trinidad is one of those few Caribbean islands, where becoming bored requires serious effort. There is always something going on regardless of the time of day. These activities cater for a wide age range, and one of the best family oriented attractions is none other than Harry's Water Park.Located deep in the Southern section of the island, getting there either requires a personal rental car, or a vast amount of time and patience to undertake the journey by use of public transportation. I visited the water park with a large group of friends, so we hired a sizable taxi for the day. For the ten of us, we paid $100 TT each, or roughly $17 US for the trip.The route to Harry's Water...Read More

Restaurant | "Great Food Every Time"

Located right in the heart of one of the largest malls in Trinidad is the Trinicity branch of J. Malone's Irish Pub. The greatest draw of the pub in my opinion, is not necessarily the drinks, but rather, the food. The menu is sufficiently diverse, and offers a lot of international choices, in addition to several local dishes. The pub has a laid back and unassuming ambience, and I absolutely enjoy eating there. The pub is quite spacious, and is capable of seating a relatively large number of person, as opposed to the majority of other eateries in the Trincity Mall. The main layout of J. Malones Irish Pub consists of a large dark wooden bar with about a two dozen matching bar sto...Read More

Maracas Beach, Trinidad

Story/Tip

There are a few spots in Trinidad which any local will insist that a visitor should go. One of these places is none other than Maracas Bay, the most visited beach on the island. Trinidad itself, is not a beach destination, as many oil rigs are scattered about the Western, Eastern and Southern coasts. However, that is not an issue in the North and that's where the famous Maracas Bay steps in.My classmates and I had a day free from studies thanks to one of the many public holidays. Due to the many different resident ethnicities of the country (Caribbean, Indian and Chinese to name a few), Trinidad actually is one of the top 5 countries in the world with the most public holidays. The local st...Read More

Hotel | "King Room at the Crowne"

I felt the need to review this hotel since my point of view significantly differs from the others posted on this site. I visited the Crowne Plaza hotel after it was remodelled, and I had a great stay there. I had no major issues with the room nor the building itself.Lobby and Front DeskThe Lobby was really nice, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. The polished tiled floor shone to the extent that it reflected all the overhead lights, thus adding to the golden ambiance of the room. There were several seats in the lobby for guests while they waited to be checked in. I arrived just before a group of flight attendants, so I had to wait for quite a while before I was ...Read More
