Take it Easy

Linger in a spa, pampering yourself with massage, sauna, skin care or foot care. Take a brief stroll through a small native plant garden that’s just steps from your car. Dawdle in our museum or marine lab, intimate venues that encourage leisure as you learn about local history or peer into tanks to close-up view of sea life. Trinidad invites you to slow down and take it easy, whether your brand of relaxation is gambling at our casino, ambling in town, on exploring scenic byways on short driving tours.
