If you have already decided and plan to travel to Trinidad, do not forget these 4 tips that will serve you well …
4 Tips for traveling to Trinidad:
- Bring Hawaiian (flip-flops) to parties. Colonial cobblestone streets abound in the colonial streets, so if you wear high heels to walk through the city, they will make your way difficult. We recommend you to do as the Trinitarian women. They walk in Hawaiian (flip-flops) and wear their heels in a plastic bag and when they get to the dance they change their shoes.
- If you have the flu take Canchánchara. If you have a cold, do not worry too much, drink Canchánchara (cocktail composed of honey, lemon, brandy, ice and water), and in a few hours you will be ready again to join the parties and the dance.
- For after party, visit La Piadinam. If you go out dancing and you get hungry at dawn, at the corner of Maceo (Gutiérrez) and Simón Bolívar (Desengaño), it is open until 3:00 am “La Piadinam” cafeteria with pizzas, hamburgers and piadinas (a type of Italian wrap with cheese, ham, vegetables, meat and nutella).
- Take care of the waters that you will not drink. When it’s Saturday you have to be careful if you go out to walk around the city. You can soak in the water that comes from the balconies of the Trinitarian houses, since that day is the only one of the week that is allowed to draw water for the street, then all the Trinitarian also throw water buckets around the house, the sidewalk and the street.
