Trinidad and Tobago records impressive growth in cruise arrivals

The tropical destination of Trinidad and Tobago has received a huge increase in cruise arrivals over recent months, according to new data released by the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO).

During the first six months of 2015, 44,949 cruise passengers visited Trinidad and Tobago, which is a 104 per cent compared to the same period in 2014. The twin-island country recorded the largest rate of increase in cruise tourism of any destination.

In the CTO report, the next-fastest growing destination for cruise holidays in the Caribbean was the island of Martinique.

Trinidad and Tobago is a country situated in the south Caribbean, 10km off the coast of Venezuela. Tobago is located 33km northeast of Trinidad, and both islands are popular tourist destinations.

The islands boast magnificent attractions including the natural coral reef of Buccoo Reef, Caroni Bird Sanctuary, the Emperor Valley Zoo, Botanical Gardens, and Fort George.

Holidaymakers can unwind on pristine palm-fringed beaches, hike up lush green mountains and rolling hills, explore the colourful coral reefs, and party at the vibrant annual carnivals such as Divali, the Hindu festival of lights and the Tobago heritage festival.

Popular activities that tourists can take part in include golf, snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, hiking and horse riding.

Tobago is just 26 miles long and 6 miles wide and geared towards tourism. The island boasts beautiful palm-fringed quiet beaches, azure waters, coral reefs that are thriving with diverse marine species, and protected forest reserves. Trinidad is the business hub of the nation, but it is home to plenty of thriving nature parks, rainforests, cascading waterfalls, and Asa Wright Nature Centre where vibrant butterflies, toucans, parrots, and iguanas live together.

Travellers can cycle along the rugged Northern Range, take a tour of Fort George and learn about Tobago’s colonial history, or relax and enjoy delicious food on Brian Lara Promenade.
