Twenty-seven years of discovering T&T
We’ve completed distribution of our latest issue, which we can’t wait to share with you. This year, we at Discover T&T mark 27 years (and 29 editions) of writing about the islands we love. As you discover these islands, we’re sure you’ll understand why — and there is always more to discover.
Published every year since 1991, Discover T&T helps readers discover where to stay, dine, lime, party, and shop; and what to see (including the islands’ best sites) and experience (festivals, arts and culture, sports, and eco escapes), in both islands. There’s also a national calendar of events; info on getting here and getting around; tips for safe and sustainable travel; T&T history and society in a nutshell, maps; and more. Discover T&T is aimed at local and international explorers planning getaways to the islands — whether for an eco adventure, business trip, or beach holiday.
For the third edition in the row, the magazine features a distinctive dual-cover design, with one cover for each island — a ruby topaz humming- bird photographed in the Arima Valley (photograph by Wendell Stephen Jay Reyes) and the relaxing scene of someone lounging atop a glass- bottom boat in the Nylon Pool (photograph by Tarique Eastman).

Come and discover Trinidad!
It’s complicated, as host Anthony Bourdain concluded on CNN’s Parts Unknown last year. Trinidadians are every flavour of the Caribbean mixed up in one — and served with pepper. Playful, witty, warm, friendly, and colourful are just a few of the words used to describe Trinis. Home to rare and endangered species like the golden tree frog, and one of the most important global nesting sites of giant leatherback turtles, Trinidad is also the most industrialised island in the region. We are a hub for commerce, trade, shopping, entertainment, and ecological research. We are complex — spiritual yet sensual; a little crazy, but cool. The kind of people who can take old oil drums and hammer out an orchestra. Welcome to our magic island.
Come and discover Tobago!
And exhale… Here, there are drop-dead gorgeous beaches to explore, plus waterfalls, rivers, and forests. And then there are the reefs — an underwater kingdom of corals with hundreds of sea creatures, including manta rays and hammerhead sharks. Little Tobago is a wild and wonderful outcrop where tropicbirds and frigatebirds fight over fish, and crash-land among the cacti. A warm Tobago welcome to you. Kick off your flip-flops and dive in!
