Things To Do In Port of Spain

Thanks to the Caribbean location of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, there are many fun things to do in Port of Spain. On the island of Tobago, you'll find the oldest protected rainforest in the Western Hemisphere. The Main Ridge Forest Reserve has been an officially protected area since 1776, but there are trails open to the public that let you hike and discover the island's native plants, trees, flowers and wildlife.

Another of our favorite relaxing activities in Port of Spain is bird watching. Bring your binoculars while you hike through Main Ridge Forest Reserve, because it's home to many exotic species. On Tobago you can also see some of the island's 200 species from the Grafton Caledonia Wildlife Sanctuary. On Trinidad, visit the Asa Wright Nature Center and Lodge, recognized as one of the Caribbean's best places for bird watching.

Sport fishing is not only one of the most popular things to do in Trinidad and Tobago, it can also be one of the most challenging. Be prepared to angle for big game such as marlin, wahoo and swordfish, just to name a few. There's a good reason why Trinidad and Tobago play host to multiple international fishing tournaments.

If you enjoy the water, then you'll be happy to hear that another of the most fun activities in Trinidad and Tobago is diving. Off the coast of Tobago you'll discover reefs that are home to hundreds of species of coral and twice as many species of fish. The Buccoo Reef is a protected marine park that's home to Nylon Pool, a shallow area with warm water that is perfect for swimming and comparing notes about which types of fish you spotted under the surface.
