Nestled at the end of the southern Caribbean’s glittering chain, are the two lush tropical islands (one nation) of Trinidad and Tobago. Immerse yourself in the rhythms, festivals, and traditions of this complex Caribbean society. The people and customs of Trinidad and Tobago emerge from a rich tapestry of race, religion, class, and culture; from various blends of the indigenous Amerindians, of Africans, East Indians, Spanish, French, British, Chinese, Syrian, among others. Vibrant and colorful, Trinidad and Tobago’s celebratory culture will reveal the strong humanity that seeks to bind its different peoples to a shared future where – as their anthem declares – “every creed and race find an equal place.”
