Tobago are beautiful, friendly islands and worth taking the time to get
to know them well. Although definitely a part of
the Caribbean, these two islands are
unique, refusing to conform with the stock Caribbean image created by
glossy brochures and travel agencies. They are both generous and
Caribbean-spirited, but quite capable of going their own way.
