We’re on to the third part of our series – ‘What to do with children while in TnT’

Third series you say . . . it’s because we know that it takes this much . . . to entertain kids.

Our previous post dealt with water activities (Getting Wet). . . but now let’s get to the adventures!

Get Wild – The islands of TnT may be tiny but there’s so much to see and do! We’ll point you in the right direction.

Welcome to Adventure Class 101

  • Hike-ology‘ – One thing about Trinbagonians . . . they love the outdoors! So you’ll find tonnes of hiking options. Whether it’s to secret beaches, camping in caves, trekking to the heart of Trinidad or the tippy top of Tobago, you name it! If you prefer to arrange your hike directly with the tour operators, by all means . . . do your thing. Depending on where you’re staying, some hotels and B&B’s offer to arrange your trip. Some of the more well organised and safe hiking groups are listed below.
