Airports in Trinidad and Tobago

Think of Trinidad and Tobago as fraternal twins – they are alike, but different in many ways. The smaller Tobago enjoys a very slow paced-lifestyle and is quite undeveloped. On the other hand, Trinidad is largely populated with sophisticated people and a unique vibe only found on this island.

Travelers booking flights to Trinidad and Tobago are heading into one of the wealthiest countries in the Caribbean. The country’s capital, the Port of Spain, resides in Trinidad, and is flanked by mountains to the north and scenic beaches along the north and east coasts. Flights to Trinidad and Tobago will land in Port of Spain and tourists will find themselves surrounded by skyscrapers, mosques, cathedrals and a Bazaar that would leave even the best shopper weak in the knees. Trinidad and Tobago flights drop visitors in the birthplace of steel drum bands and calypso dancing. Hop off the flight and join the fun!
