Cheap Flights to Trinidad and Tobago

Trinidad and Tobago is a twin island country off the northern edge of South America. It lies just off the coast of northeastern Venezuela and south of Grenada in the Lesser Antilles. Usually considered part of the Caribbean, it shares maritime boundaries to Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, and Venezuela, and has a total land area of 5,128 square kilometres. The islands consist of two main islands Trinidad and Tobago - where the name of the country comes from – as well as numerous islets. The two main islands are divided into nine regions and one ward. It was originally a Spanish colony before the British ceded both islands in 1802 through the Treaty of Amiens.
Trinidad and Tobago is the third richest country per capital in the Americas after United States and Canada, and is recognized as a high-income economy by the World Bank. And unlike most of the Caribbean nations, the country's economy is primarily industrial, with an emphasis on petroleum and petrochemicals.
The country is more known for its Carnival though, and is the birthplace of steel pan, limbo, and the music styles of calypso, soca, and chutney.
What to see & do
Port of Spain - an absorbing and highly urban spot at the heart of the Caribbean, the Port of Spain is more than your average Caribbean capital. The Port of Spain is filled with market stalls and shady squares in the morning, vibrant bars at night, and a whole heap of fun when the Trinidad Carnival season hits. As soon as the Carnival commences, the city transforms into a huge party venue where huge fetes rock all corners, steel-pan music fills the air around the panyards, and the atmosphere becomes electric. The buzzing capital will school its visitors on the most comprehensive crash course on partying, and the booze game is on.
Crown Point - located on Tobago's south-west tip, Crown Point poses as Trinidad and Tobago's 'Land of Lotus Eaters', having a wide range of accommodations, restaurants, and nightlife which typically lure tourists to stay. But for those who yearn to appreciate the island of Tobago better will have to plan fast and push eastward to explore other parts of the islands.
Chaguaramas - a short drive or water taxi ride from the country's capital, the Chaguaramas peninsula was the site of a major US military installation during World War II, and was only fully handed back to Trinidad's wing in the 1970s. Today, the string of marinas along the ocean is a favourite area and spot for yachters, who came to the country to take advantage of the marina and dry-docking facilities, or wait out the weather. The island is also the launching point for tours to a chain of offshore islands, the Bocas.  
How to get around
Travellers may go around Trinidad and Tobago via various transport modes. Taxis, buses, ferries, car rentals, and other forms are all available for inland travel, while inter-island transport is covered by ferry or by charter planes. Note that travelling around the area requires paying in Trinidad and Tobago Dollars, but a few drivers and operators accept other acceptable forms of cash such as US Dollars, Euros, and others. Be careful though, as other operators do not give favourable exchange rates, and some drivers on the island can be reckless.

Direct services are provided by Caribbean Airlines, American Airlines, British Airways, Conviasa, COPA, Liat Airlines, Surinam Airways, United Airlines, West Jet, and Jetblue.
