(For a trinidadian living outside of T&T i must say that this article is a bit too inconclusive to be considered informative. I like roti just as much as the next person, however i don't think it merits being the unofficial official meal of T&T.. because of how varied food and culture is in trinidad and tobago, no single meal can effectively be considered as such.)
Some Indian owned homes.The majority of the populastion are decended from Blacks from Africa and Indians from India. The Racism is between the two not the indiggies. Asshole should meet people from more than one race. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs)
As a black trini I was brought up with hot and cold running water and en suite bathrooms. Trinindad has great poverty wealth(oil money) racism and corruption.....I would suggest more travel around trinindad. Some parts are county and some are lovely black,indian or white suburbs. Education culminates in international o`levels and a`level from Oxford & Cambridge. Wealthy blacks tend go to college in Canada or England. Indians Trinidad or India. A Degree allow freedom of movement throught the Carrib via Carricom. In the UK and US Indians rejected Trinidad indians as most are of mixed blood. This has produced a strange Hindu nationalism bent on taking over the country through easy immigration from India a la Fiji. This is the root of an ever worsening racial situation. Canada has huge links with the black trini population. Most blacks travel there and to Venezuala. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs)
The article says that five of the world's major religions are represented in Trinidad. This should be clarified. For example, there is not a large Jewish community in Trinidad (Judaism being a major religion). This could be of importance to visitors from North America and Europe (especially Eastern Europe).Rjairam 19:49, 2 February 2007 (EST)
Actually, there is a small Jewish community in Trinidad - numbering approximately 100 persons. True, there is no synagogue or rabbi, but the community is there and it active. https://www.facebook.com/jewishtnt? www.jewishtnt.org

Ok, this may seem obvious but what is the main airport to get into Trinidad from the outside? 220.127.116.11 19:58, 8 September 2007 (EDT)
Answer: POS (Port-of-Spain) has commercial service from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Miami, FL (MIA), Newark (EWR), and New York City's JKF Airport (JFK).
Houston (IAH) is also accessible.
What are the policies (official and customary) of honoring foreign Concealed Carry Permits for tourists who wish to carry their legally licensed handguns while visiting Trinidad & Tobago? What weapons can an American carry for self defense?
