Thinking about solo travel?

Trinidad Carnival is the PERFECT solo trip!
Thinking about solo travel?

If you’ve never traveled solo, then let us share with you why Trinidad Carnival is the perfect trip to do this:

Safety first (of course!)
Now, I know we said Trinidad Carnival is the perfect trip to travel solo (and we’re not taking that back), however like ANY kind of solo travel, you should do your due diligence.  Make sure that you look into the following before booking any solo trip:
Our very first Ultimate Trinidad Carnival Experience!  #throwback

  1. Take advantage of group tours.  You should also ensure there are multiple ways to connect with your group before you get to your destination.  With Ultimate Trinidad Carnival, we've matched dozens of solo travelers over the years with amazing results!  Solo tip: If you're requesting the group tour to match you with a roommate, do like we do - ensure that you understand how this is done and that you get to connect with the person before hand.
  2. Book with a reputable company.  Here are some questions to think about as you do your research:  Are you Better Business Bureau (BBB) rated/accredited?  Do you have testimonials from or videos of real people on your website?  Do you have a website that doesn't look "shady"?  Also, tap your connections - do you know someone on social media who might have traveled with them?  Ultimate Trinidad Carnival can answer a resounding "yes" to the 1st 3 questions!  Now, whether you know someone (who knows someone) who has traveled with us, well only you can answer that ;)
  3. Know the refund policy.  We’ve all done it; gotten excited about booking the perfect trip and booked it, only to find out that their refund policy isn’t very refundable at all.  Know the refund policy before you put that deposit down.  Our refund policy is flexible enough that if something comes up, you can get a full or partial refund depending on what time of year you cancel.  Our packages can also be transferred to another person if needed.

Indulge your sense of adventure
Even Oprah is into adventure this year!  In case you didn’t know, Oprah's word for 2017 is adventure.  And for those of you looking for solo adventure, Trinidad Carnival is PERFECT.  You’ll get right out of your comfort zone and into vacay mode in a tropical paradise complete with beautiful scenery, lots of eye candy and fun, fun, fun!  Unique experiences abound with:
It's all about J'ouvert!

  • You, the center of attention – you’re THE parade in full costume during Trinidad Carnival!  Check out our take on the Trinidad Carnival parade experience by clicking here.
  • Delicious food AND drinks – Trinidadian cuisine is SOOOOO mouthwatering!  And couple that with a unique partying experience, open bar and infectious soca music, you definitely have adventure on your hands.  Here’s what we have to say about the Trini fetes (also known as parties) that happen during Trinidad Carnival – click here.

Making new memories and friends...
And last, but certainly not least – you’ll make new memories and friends so easily, it’ll make your head spin!  Within the over 200 travelers that we’ve taken to Trinidad Carnival, several of them have bonded over the experience and made long lasting friendships.  How could you not form lasting bonds during this unique experience?
