In order to get to Tobago from Trinidad, there are two options. One can either take the boat or the plane. The boat takes about 2.5-3 hours while the plane takes 20 mins. Advantages of taking the boat include being able to take your car with you and the cheaper cost, while the obvious advantage of the plane is the short amount of time it takes. Considering I had no car to bring with me and I hate traveling for long periods of time , I elected to take the plane while some people in my family took the boat.
In all of my times of going to Trinidad I have only been to Tobago once before this last trip. I was about 9 years old the last time I went and I was taken there by one of my aunts. All I can remember doing was waking up, going to the beach, eating, going back to the beach, sleeping then repeating it the next day. I was curious to see how much Tobago had changed since my last visit and what activities we would embark on.
Once we arrived to Tobago we went straight to one of the four villas that had been rented for my family in a gated community called Samaan Grove. Our accommodations were more than what I expected. Although not right on the beach each house had its own pool, very large updated kitchen, and bathrooms in every bedroom. The pools were amazing. I’m not much of a pool girl myself, but being able to swim at all our of the night was quite enjoyable. My favorite part about all of the properties were the landscaping. It was quite peaceful being around so many beautiful and exotic trees and plants.
