Overview Of The Port Of Port of Spain

About Port of Spain
Port of Spain is the capital of Trinidad, the southern most island in the Caribbean, only 7 miles away from Venezuela.

Queen's Park Savannah and the Magnificent Seven is a former sugar cane plantation, now a public recreation area with restaurants, the Botanical Garden and the Emperor Valley zoo nearby.

Asa Wright Nature Centre (1 hour drive from the port), offers bird watching and guided nature walks. It also has a hotel, restaurant and gift shop.

Fort George, 1,000ft above the city affords views of Port of Spain and the harbour. Built in 1804 as a defensive site, it is now a signal station for ships. Visitors can see original cannons and some of the dungeons.

Most of Trinidad's beaches are too far away for the day tripper, however one option is Maracas Bay beach, which is only an hour's drive from the port.

There is a mix of cuisines available in Port of Spain including Creole, Indian and Chinese. Trinidadian favourites are curries, rotis (Indian flatbread), their national dish 'callaloo', (spicy soup) and local fish such as Kingfish.
Cruise Terminal
The King's Wharf Cruise Terminal at Port of Spain is located in the city centre, within walking distance from the port. The terminal has several souvenir, clothing and duty free shops and a tourist information office. Taxis are available from here also.
