What to Take
- Insect repellent, especially given recent zika/chikungunya outbreaks.
- Walking shoes, if you plan on hiking/birdwatching.
- High-factor sunscreen and UV-protective swimwear.
- Party clothes and shoes – Trinis dress up when they go out.
- A flashlight (torch) – power cuts are quite frequent.
What to Wear
Natural fabrics work best in the heat, and you'll appreciate a UV sun vest if you plan on snorkeling. Trinbagonians can be quite conservative, so keep beachwear for the beach, and cover up with a T-shirt or sarong when ordering drinks from the beach bar. Many of Port of Spain's clubs require smart-casual clothes and disallow hats, sneakers or flip-flops ('slippers'), though these rules are sometimes waived for visitors. Otherwise, you'll be fine in casual shorts and a T-shirt or sundress. Jeans/trousers and a top with long sleeves can be useful for cool evenings and protection against bugs.
