2. Tour Port of Spain
Now booming with oil money and Trinidad’s successful industrial economy, Port of Spain is a city of two sides.
On the one half are the ports, depots, modern high-rises and traffic-choked highways.
On the other are the charming arrays of Victorian and Georgian mansions, neoclassical builds and elegant plazas.
Hit this historic part of the capital to see the wonderful likes of Christopher Columbus Square, peppered with babbling fountains and lanky palm trees.
Or, wonder at the magenta Red House: the seat of the country’s government.
Finally, be sure to check out the so-called Magnificent Seven – a row of opulent colonial homes from centuries gone by!
