I am off to the caribbean in a few weeks with my girlfriend.
we will be spending most of the time in Tobago. My friend (in england) is from tobago and she has an empty apartment in the capital Scarborough, where we will be staying free of charge. Her family live down the road so they will hopefully look after us.
We will also spend a week in Grenada where my friend from ireland is now living. I feel lucky to have contacts there as it means we will aviod the tourist traps and be in the heart of both places.
i was wondering if anybody on the forum had visited these places before and had any travel advice, recommendations or experiences (positive or negative) they might share.
also some advice on Trinidad would be great. because we will be in Tobago it seems to make sense that we should hop over to Trini, but after watching a documentary recently that made Trinidad out to be an extremely violent place (1 murder every 17 hours apparently) my girlfriend has been very turned off the idea of going there.
sorry this isnt music related
