Tour Ariapita Avenue

Duration: Half Day

Tour Ariapita Avenue

Explore the culinary delights of the Caribbean during your holiday in Trinidad as you stroll down Ariapita Avenue. This vibrant main street runs through the residential suburb of Woodbrook in Port-of-Spain and is one of the best areas to drink and dine in the city. From fast food outlets to fine dining, there is something to tempt every taste bud.

Located on the northwest coast of Trinidad, Port-of-Spain is the historic capital of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, and the most developed city in the country. If you decide to take a walking tour whilst you are here, Ariapita Avenue is as good a place to start as any. Located in the large Woodbrook neighbourhood, west of downtown, this is one of the most commercialised districts in the city and a great place to head for a night out on the town. The area was formerly a flourishing sugar estate, owned by the Siegert family, but over the last 20 years it has been transformed into a popular and relatively upmarket dining and entertainment strip. Numerous wine bars and nightclubs are located here, which you can guess from the thumping beats of Calypso and Soca (Soul-Calypso) filling the air.

Ariapita Avenue is more famously known as the city’s biggest restaurant district. In fact, it is often described as a smaller version of New York City’s Greenwich Village, which is regarded as one of the greatest culinary and cultural centres of the world. As you walk down the Avenue you will find an excellent selection of venues and restaurants featuring every conceivable type of cuisine, at a range of prices to suit every budget. French, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Spanish and Thai food are just some of the International options available, whilst the local Caribbean fare is also extremely popular. Visitors are certainly spoilt for choice here. Just remember to dress smartly for the fine dining restaurants, and book in advance to secure a table.

One of the best times to visit Port of Spain is during the Trinidad Carnival, one of the oldest and largest carnivals in the world. At this time, Ariapita Avenue comes alive with colour, music and dancing as thousands of visitors, locals and costumed performers take to the city streets for one of the biggest parties of the year. Not to be missed, a walk down Ariapita Avenue is a unique cultural experience not to be missed.
