Tobago: A Caribbean Gem


Since living in the US, a day doesn't go by without someone asking me where my accent is from. Usually Trinidad and Tobago is the last thing on their mind. Trinidad is where I grew up which is more of a bustling kind of island but Tobago is a short 20 minute flight where we go to relax.

Tobago is my definition of paradise. Spending time there was much needed after all the hopping around in Trinidad to family and friends for Christmas dinners/lunches/parties. I also got lots of QT with my goddaughter since we all stayed in the same villa.

Our Villa
We stayed at Tobago Hibiscus Golf Villas which are nestled in a quiet spot near the golf course and had all the amenities we needed, including a full kitchen and pool.

The morning started out quite gloomy but the sunshine finally came out.




Where exactly is Trinidad & Tobago?
T&T are two islands considered one country and are the most south eastern Caribbean islands situated right above South America, Venezuela to be exact.


What language do you speak there?
It's an English speaking country, although accents can be thick with local slang.

  7. That water and the sunshine looks so amazing and I just want to hop right in to these pictures!! A twenty minute flight doesn't sound awful, even to me, who hates flying.

  10. I can't get over how clear the water is. I know I've only seen the crazy dirty gulf, but it's hard to believe that this place exists in the same domain.

  16. Oh my goodness, that water is just perfect! It's been forever since we've been to a beach with that pretty of water, and I'm thinking that a Caribbean vacation should be on the radar soon! We've never been to T&T so that would be fun to visit, plus I could get a lot of great recs from you!

  17. Beautiful island! How old were you when you left?
    Of the two islands, Trinidad is the more touristy of the two, am I right? Is there diving there? Barbados is our paradise and home away from
    Home. I know someday we’ll move there, I just know it. Probably to retire. :)
