Our Trinidad & Tobago adventure will take place from Saturday, May 23 to Sunday,May 31, 2015 (8 nights in total; 9 nights for those wishing to arrive on Friday). We will be meeting at and leaving from the Port of Spain (the capital) international airport (POS).
We ask that you plan to be on a flight that will land in Port of Spain by 7 pm on May 23. If you decide to arrive a day earlier (Friday, May 22), please plan on landing by 4 pm. Your flight home on May 31 can be at any time during the day, though most attendees prefer the early morning departure.
As noted, you have an option of arriving on Friday and spending the first weekend in Port of Spain, meeting with the tiny Jewish community and spending some time getting to know the Trini culture.
If you want to arrive a day or two earlier, or choose to leave later, please let us know how we can help you experience more of this magnificent island. We can arrange for a pick-up or drop-off in another part of Port of Spain at the beginning or end of the trip.
- Near Port of Spain, you will stay in the Pax Guesthouse, a unique building that once housed a Benedictine Monastery.
- On the northern coast of Trinidad, you will be staying in the magnificently situated Le Grande Almandier eco-lodge, right by the beach.
- On Tobago you will be staying in the secluded Footprints eco-resort.
Our Trinidad & Tobago adventure will be guided and led by Mr. Courtney Rooks, a local naturalist and tour guide, whose vision and energy is the driving force behind Paria Springs Tours. Courtney is an amazing guide, and he will be introducing us, with his unique sense of humor, to the people and nature of the islands.
