Trinidad and Tobago

This twin-island paradise is a country of its own accord, snuggled between the Caribbean and the north-eastern coast of Venezuela. While Trinidad is incredibly popular and visited, Tobago is the a little more visitor-shy, so the two isles offer diverging scenes and vibes.

Tobago for the Relaxation

Tobago, on the other hand, is like her quiet, unassuming cousin, where all that is cosmopolitan and commercial is traded in for unspoilt wilderness and a very chilled out atmosphere. The contrast of the two island is perfectly complementing and the primary reason Tobago and Trinidad yacht charters are so popular, especially at Carnival time.

Knowing that on Trinidad yacht charters vacation, you’ll have plenty of chances to unplug for a while, and delight in some blissful rest, is simply priceless.
