The What…

This beautiful island is home to some of the most breath-taking scenic views and to one of the wonders of the world. But don’t let that trick you into thinking that sand and the horizon are all it has to offer. Trinidad is an undercover world full of experiences to discover and enjoy, with one that rises above the rest: Carnival!

Trini Carnival is a Big Deal™, with the 2018 event happening between 12th – 13th February. If next year should find you parading the streets of the capital (Port-of-Spain), we can guarantee you’ll be having the experience of a lifetime! And you probably won’t be alone in the revelry.

Although Carnival itself is only two days long, for the rest of the island it’s an entire season, with back-to-back parties and events to keep you busy for at least two weeks. Keep an eye on these reputable ticket sellers for updates on the 2018 event schedule.

The What to Wear…

To really get into the height of the spirit you’ll want to be part of a band. Trinidad carnival bands are jam-packed with fun and flavour, and the best way to participate in the islands’ festivities. Joining up will earn you a carnival costume for the day/days as well as all-inclusive drinks and food.
