Port of Spain by night! Come and visit the authentic “pan yards” where the famous steelbands practice, experience live steeldrum music in its birthplace! This is not a “show” put on for tourists – this is the REAL experience! Skilled musicians strike these hollowed-out oil drums with incredible passion! Their skill surpasses everything you have seen and you will be stunned – we promise! “Pan” – as the instrument is lovingly called – is the heartbeat of Trinidad, the only instrument in the world known to have been invented in the 20th Century!
Follow up with a chance to hop out onto the “Avenue”, a lively night strip serving up local food 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 night-time atmosphere. Sample the famous doubles, corn soup or the local version of Gyros – drink a banana punch with seamoss – or have a cool beer in one of the open streetbars (2 doubles & non-alcoholic drink included).
During the Carnival season (Jan/Feb/March) the bands can comprise over 100 players!! Total epic! You can also visit a “mascamp” where the newest, most trendy Carnival costumes are displayed and learn all about this art form.
TIP: This tour can be extended to include clubbing. “Lime” with an insider of the Trinidad Party Scene!
