Carnival 2013

This is my first time traveling to trinidad for carnival and I'm in shocked! All the hotels are sold out. Where do people stay? Do I have any hope??? Is there a special website for hotels or rooms to book?

Thanks

Yes, many rooms are booked for that time a year in advance. You'll have to search for the small "mom and pop" places that might have rooms. Google might help. Did you include Hotel Normandie and the Kapok hotel in your search?

There's another newish hotel (about 2 or 3 years) called the Carlton Savannah - will be pricey though.

Hotels for the carnival season are booked wayyyyy in advance.

Have you also looked at hotels outside of Port of Spain (where all the action is)? You can also try searching this site.

"hotels.com" (nor expedia, orbitz, etc) - is not the place to find hotels in TnT - that website has only "mainstream" properties. There are WAY MORE places to stay in Trinidad than you will find there - but many of them are not affiliated with, or advertised on, the "mainstream" big-box travel websites. You will do better by googling directly for "trinidad hotels" or "trinidad accomodations", because many, if not most, of the smaller hotels, guest houses, and B&B's don't participate on any of those big travel websites.

Itwinkles. If all the hotels are booked. Start looking at the Bread and Breakfast places. There are many in Woodbrook, Belmont, St. Anns, etc. All these places are better because they are in the city. Also search for just "Hotels and guesthouses". I am sure that there are still vacancies at the smaller hotels. Just do a lot of searches. Those big sites do not list all the hotels and other places of accommodation.

Did you try "Kapok". They are situated in Cotton Hill just north of the Queen's Park Savannah.
