Description

Explore the Port of Spain after dark as you venture to the steelpan yards, where the sounds of steel drums chime in a chromatic harmony synonymous with the Caribbean. Afterward, hang around to eat local cuisine on the Avenue and party through the morning hours. Get picked up from your hotel in the evening and drive around the Port of Spain to experience the variety of steelpan yards, popular practice areas for steel drum bands. As skilled musicians strike these hollowed-out oil drums like gongs, distinctly tropical pitches resonate to form the building blocks for Calypso or even intricate classical compositions. Follow up with a chance to hop out onto the Avenue, a lively night strip serving up local food and beverages from outdoor venues. With such a wide range of choices, you're sure to find something to suit your appetite as you soak up the nighttime atmosphere before returning to your hotel.
