Queen’s Park Savannah

Queen’s Park Savannah, also known as "The World’s Largest Roundabout", is a public park in downtown Port of Spain. The park is located across the street from the Magnificent Seven, which are large mansions built during the colonial period. The busiest time at the park is usually in the early evening, when the intense heat has diminished. Locals gather at the park to play cricket or football. If you walk around the perimeter of the park, you will find local vendors selling coconut water, however, if you want to try some of the street foods and drink, there is an open air night market in the car park of Queen’s Park Savannah.

Port of Spain is a thriving, major city in the Caribbean.

The city boasts a range of activities such as cricket and football matches, shopping centres, an art and history museum, historic landmarks and of course, the Trinidad Carnival in Easter. What is also worth checking out during your visit to Port of Spain is Calypso music, an Afro-Caribbean musical tradition that emerged in Trinidad and Tobago.

There are several stunning beaches in the region, ranging from the ones most frequented by visitors on day trips from Port of Spain to peaceful and secluded spots, which are preferred by the locals.
