Great local hangout.

At nights during carnival you can find great food and drinks. It is best if you can do with a local.

This street is full of bars and food vendor and very busy at nights, especially around Carnival season. Can be fun but be mindful of your surroundings.

Enjoy a trip down the Wester Main Road through the bustling area of St James. This road also takes you to the Fort , Carenage, and the old US base at Chaguramus, where you can enjoy drinks and food at Crews Inn. The road is narrow so use caution when driving.

A staple for locally flavoured ice-cream (my favs are sou sop/guiness and coconut), delicious burgers,doubles, roti etc There are also a number of bars along the way if you fancy the local beers and then some. It was not as busy for a Fri night which was gr8 as there was not much traffic a definite plus! Worth the trip... More

Outside of the local food stalls and home made ice cream I don't care much for this area. The infestation of roaches are a big detractor. Everything is open late though so if you like grimy night life, it may be for you.

Consistently congested at all times of night and day. Maintenance is poor and constantly ongoing but not getting anything done. However, all drivers seem to get along and road rage is non existent. Like Rodney King said, "Can't everybody just get along?" On Western Main Road they seem to have managed that.

Really nice place to pass through one problem is there is one way in and out which is bad. Traffic was piling up by the minute, one good thing is the scenery, huge unique mansions and a wonderful ocean view.

You should be able to find many good places to eat on this strip. Having a car makes getting around easy, but driver beware. Trinidad drivers are nuts!
