Cheap Flights to Trinidad and Tobago 

Visit Trinidad and Tobago for the beaches and festivals, stay for the authentic Creole and Caribbean culture and rare bird sanctuaries. Trinidad and Tobago are the names of the two islands that make up this small nation, with Trinidad being the much larger of the two where most of the commercial activity and transportation hubs are located. It's amazing that so much diversity can be packed into such a small area when it comes to food, biodiversity, and both indoor and outdoor activities. The official language of the country is English, as the islands were under British control until they achieved independence in 1962. A history of colonialism and slavery also brought languages like Caribbean Hindustani (a Hindi dialect), French, Chinese, and Spanish to Trinidad and Tobago.

What to do in Trinidad and Tobago

There is really something for everyone on these islands, whether you're a sports fan, a foodie, keen on watersports, a party animal or a dedicated naturalist. This inclusive and all-encompassing culture extends to different income levels, even though the area has a reputation for classic Caribbean prices. Most of what you see online are on the luxurious and expensive side, and the more undeveloped and cheaper options for accommodations and activities are located on the smaller island of Tobago. Bear in mind that accommodations in Port of Spain tend to be the most expensive in the country, especially during festivals.

Best time to fly to Trinidad and Tobago

As the weather is sunny and temperate all year round, any time of the year is a great time to visit. If you're interested in festivals, the Carnival celebration here is one of the most vibrant in the world, with holiday-related activities starting after the Christmas season and finally culminate in Carnival on Ash Wednesday. Events, parties, and parades start at 4 am and literally go on for days.  

Airports in Trinidad and Tobago

There are two international airports to take you to or from either island, Piarco International Airport (POS) in Trinidad and A. N. R. Robinson International Airport (TAB) in Tobago. The national carrier Caribbean Airlines has a presence at both airports and handles both domestic and foreign travel. POS is the larger of the two, and if you're flying directly from Canada or with an American no-frills airline, this is where you'll arrive. TAB does handle long-haul international flights, but only with four airlines heading to London, New York, and points in Germany during the high season.  

Tips and Additional Advisory

Although the climate stays consistent throughout the year, things can get crowded and expensive during the holidays. Travelers who are planning their visits during Christmas, the easter season, or anytime in between should book well in advance. The location of both islands is outside of the Hurricane Belt, which means one less thing to worry about if you're meeting a cruise ship or traveling by boat. When you're traveling in the city, only use licensed taxis, and only take tours with officially certified guides.
