City Information

History
Named for the tobacco cultivated by the original Carib population, Tobago existed separately from Trinidad for centuries. While the explorer Christopher Columbus sighted the island in 1498, he did not land and no attempts were made to colonize Tobago.

Carnival

More than steelpan, masqueraders and calypso, Tobago's Carnival celebrations embrace many of the island's traditions. Speech bands, whip wielding devils called jab jabs (from French diable), bottle and spoon bands and African drumming are incorporated into the island's celebrations. Tobago's Carnival is laid back when compared to the frenzied festivities in Trinidad.

Dining
Like much of the culture, Tobago's traditional cuisine is heavily influenced by the African heritage of its inhabitants. The island's delicious specialties include crab and flour dumplings simmered in a thick curry and coconut sauce, and a thin, spicy drink touted as an aphrodisiac called pacro water (prepared by boiling sea cockroach, a local shellfish). Store Bay, a 10 minute walk from Crown Point International Airport, is home to some of Tobago's best cooks who sell authentic local fare out of beachfront kiosks. In the resort districts of Crown Point and Buccoo, stylish gourmet restaurants serve menus incorporating international styles with local spices and ingredients.

Weddings

With unspoiled beaches, colourful reefs, pristine rainforest, historic forts and quaint hotels, Tobago offers countless possibilities for romantic weddings and delightful honeymoons. From the historical Ole Time Tobago wedding procession to traditional nuptials or an underwater exchange of vows, the island offers the perfect ambience for your dream wedding.
