A friend and I are planning an ~8-day trip to Trinidad and Tobago in mid-March from Boston. We are drawn to the islands for the culture and food, but know next to nothing about good destinations. We're interested in beautiful beaches, hiking etc through the rainforest, interesting urban spots, calypso and other music, food, dancing at night, etc. The more local/authentic and less touristic the better, and socially/environmentally responsible preferred.
Can you recommend destinations and/or a week-long itinerary for us? We're in our 30s so are not interested in lodging in loud/dirty hostels, but are not interested in isolated resorts, either.
Thanks in advance!
