Reasons To Visit Tobago
Tobago is one of the two islands that makes up the country of Trinidad and Tobago. Tobago is the smaller of the two islands and enjoys a more peaceful and relaxed atmosphere compared to the busier Trinidad. Many visitors come to Tobago to enjoy time on its idyllic beaches or experience its rich biodiversity, with the island offering just as much to the laid-back travelers as it does to the thrill-seeker. Some of the top attractions on the island include the Caroni Bird Sanctuary, which sits in swampy terrain, or the Emperor Valley Zoo, which is ideal for families. Despite being quieter than Trinidad, you will still find plenty of restaurants and bars around Tobago to enjoy yourself in the evening.
Arriving In Tobago
A. N. R. Robinson International Airport is the secondary international airport serving Trinidad and Tobago located on the island of Tobago around 10 km from the capital Scarborough. Although the airport handles a few different long-haul routes, you will not be able to find any direct flights from the UAE to Tobago. However, A. N. R. Robinson International Airport has regular connections from multiple airports which handle direct flights from the UAE, so you can conveniently make the journey with just one transfer.
A. N. R. Robinson International Airport is comprised of two passenger terminals including a dedicated international terminal and offers very little in terms of amenities and facilities, so come prepared and bring any essentials you need with you. However, there is a café and snack bar on site where you can enjoy something to eat as well as a couple of souvenir shops. Once you have arrived at the airport the easiest way to reach your destination is to hop in a taxi, although there are also bus services available offering a cheaper alternative. Alternatively, you could consider renting a car in Tobago.
