Clear blue waters, charming hotels, horseback riding and much more. There is so much to do in Tobago. Caribbean Airlines flights may be sold out but you could brave the three-hour ferry ride there. Some of the best beaches are located in Tobago like Englishman’s Bay, Pirate’s Bay and Buccoo Beach.

A Dining Experience 

Enjoy a culinary experience, stop by Chaud wine bar or Bottles & Bites for sushi –  check first if they’re open, some businesses honor Ash Wednesday.

Before you leave Trinidad, make sure you try some Trinidadian delights. You can enjoy a self-guided street food tour. Stop by spots like Nelly & Son’s for soup, Georgie’s Gyro or D’original Fly Over for doubles.

Have a Spa Day  

I love everything spa and wellness, it is one of my favorite ways to spend my time. I would highly recommend a massage treatment to soothe your Soca intoxicated muscles. Here are some spas to check out while you’re in Trinidad.

Beauty and Body Spa located in Woodbrook, Port of Spain, is a full service spa, which offers a complete range of pampering and beauty services. At La Mere,  you can journey to the spa for relaxation or a detoxifying facial. Lastly,  if you’re staying at the Hyatt, be sure to visit Spa Escencia; the staff promises to  soothe and revitalize your mind and body.
