Touring Trinidad: the “Deep South”

Trinidad’s at once industrial and bucolic south is in many ways the backbone of Trinidad. The oil which has (literally) fuelled Trinidad and Tobago’s rise as the most developed country in the Caribbean, comes from here; and the fight for workers’ rights began here back in the 1930s. Although the pace of life is hectic in some parts, the south generally cannot compete with the hustle and bustle of the north.
