Trini Carnival 2011 – Sun, Rum, Soca & Sexing Bad Trini Girls! (?)
This morning I was directed to a forum that had a blog post from a guy who’s been to Trinidad more than a couple times. Let’s just say HIS experience was drastically different from mine. But instead of trying to describe the experience to you, I’ll let his words speak for him.
Let the experience begin
Trinidad & Tobago – Carnival 2011 – Sun, Rum, Soca & Sexing Bad Trini Girls!
Whaddup Fellas, It’s been a minute but I have been grinding and traveling a lot so I havent had time to throw together all of my juicy reports for the year but I’m going to set it off with this one about Trinidad & Tobago the Twin Island Nation just north of Venezuela in The Southern Caribbean known for having the finest women with the sexiest accents in the English Speaking Caribbean and for having the Largest Street Party Carnival in the World even though Rio disputes It. Never tell a Trini that Rio Carnival is better! Ha…
Anyway…I have been to Trinidad about 3 times in the past 2 months and I have really fell in love with the place and most especially the hot women and warm people . I just came back from yet another weekend rendezvous to hit the Tobago Jazz Festival, Surf & hit a Yacht Party with a dime piece I met during Carnival that I came back to see and banged all weekend long…
I just keep meeting new ones because I came up on this 20 year old Indian/Black Trini Model who was working a promotion at the boat party this past weekend and slayed her the same night after having wine and listening to R&B music afterwards at the Hyatt…
I swear I can’t lose out here!
Money: Exchange Rate is $1 USD to 6 TT Dollars.
How to get there: Caribbean Airlines, American Airlines, Continental Airlines, British Airways. I prefer Caribbean Airlines when flying to Port of Spain and on this trip pulled a fine flight attendant on the way down and met another one during Carnival time. It’s always good to connect with the local flavor and flying the official carrier of the company is a good start for the trip. The city is kind of rough around the edges but has it’s charm in some places and Is easy to get around.
Where to Stay: Hyatt, Hilton, Courtyard Marriott, Carlton Savannah.
The Hyatt is brand new and is amazingly beautiful with lovely rooms and bedding, shower and top notch service and super player lobby bar that can be used to seal the deal with any dime piece you invite over , infinity roof top pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea. I sealed many of deals here over Carnival Weekend and If you invite a girl back to this spot she will not resist. I stayed at the Courtyard Marriott on my last two trips and It’s nice as well just a little smaller and right next door to a movie complex/mall called Movietowne.
Day Game: Queens Savannah Park, Downtown Port of Spain near the Financial District, TrinCity Mall, Movietowne Mall WestMoorings Mall. Maracas Bay Beach which is about 45 minutes away alot of nice chicks in bikinis chillin.
Transportation: The main mode of transportation is Maxi-Taxis. It works almost like hitch hiking. You stand on the side of the road and just put your hand out and either a Van or Car will pull up to you. Most of the routes you will travel to are on a fixed route status and It costs about 2TT to 3 TT which is about 33 Cents so not a bad deal at all.
Where to party:
Ariapita Avenue: Is the main commercial and nightlife area packed with restaurants, lounges & boutiques with a number of cool spots to check out and people hanging out Nightly. Pick one and go in you can’t lose. Vino Libor is a nice lounge to start the night off before moving on to some larger clubs or lounges to bar hop.
St. James: Is the more working class and down home bar scene and much cheaper but you won’t find any of the beautiful people of Port of Spain hanging out here for the most part. More of a place to grab a brew with the fellas (Stag & Carib are the main choices of brew here)
IntlSwagger Nightclub Picks: 51 & Area, Zen: These are the most upscale spots in the city…This is where you will find the finest chicks hanging out on the regular.
Bottle Service for Johnny Walker Black 500TT
Local Brew: 20TT
Mixed Drinks: 30TT
Entrance: 60TT to 120TT If you’re not on the list.
Port of Spain is a vibrant Port Industry City with a beautiful sultry mix of women with all types of mixes Chinese/Indian/Black/Lebanese/Syrian/Venezuelan. I mostly zero’d in on the mixed chicks who were various mixtures of Indian/Black/Spanish/Chinese and did very well. If you hit the right spots, are fashionable and have a good mouth piece you can get in with these chicks. You cannot be timid in dealing with these chicks or you will be eaten alive. They like dudes with confidence and style about themselves, cats who know how to hold them down so If you are the nerdy type I wouldn’t suggest this place for you. Even the Indian dudes have balls about themselves here and seeing White cats with Caribbean accents was kind of surreal.
Best Time of Year to Visit:
Carnival is the best time of year to go and things start to crank up around Christmas time. The North American Summer being the second best time of year to visit.
Here is a good example on how it goes down at Carnival!
Carnival is the Yearly major social event of the English Speaking Caribbean. Picture the tightest dime pieces from the middle to highest social ladders from all over the English Speaking Caribbean come through partying over 10 days in one spot. Chicks from Bermuda, Barbados, Jamaica, The UK, Bahamas and the US as well. This event is extremely sexual and rum fueled to the max. The Carnival action starts well before The Carnival Monday & Tuesday. It is advisable to arrive on the Wednesday before Carnival Weekend to hit up the extremely popular Fetes (Parties) which are filled wall to wall with exotic dancing beauties Whining (Dancing) and looking to meet guys and Liming (Partying).
These events normally have a performance by one of the many popular Soca Artists (Michael Montana, Destra, KES and many others) and are extremely live. These Fetes are normally all-inclusive (food and drink) and range in cost from $25-$75. They are normally held outdoors or at one of the huge parks or stadiums. Some of the names of the Fetes: Beach House, Girl Power, Soca Monarch, Breakfast Fete. Looks them all up and peep the pictures of the talent…AMAZING!!!
After Carnival most people head over to Tobago on that Wednesday – Saturday/Sunday which is a 15 minute flight and cost around $48 roundtrip on Caribbean Airlines for some sun, relaxation and more partying…more on that later….
How to game the women:This spot Is pure Gold for any cat who looks somewhat different than a Trini from what I noticed and have been told. As for me a mixed looking Black American Man like myself I just couldn’t lose and since English is the main language I had no problem gaming and approaching any women. Most of the chicks were always asking what I’m mixed with so I had air of intrigue about myself even though I still identify myself as Black but my family is Creole from New Orleans. Lighter-Brown Skinned Brothas seem to have a GREAT Advantage here in my opinion.
But I think anyone who is somewhat Hip, Edgy & Good Looking with Swagger of any race can do well here. You just have to have supreme confidence, body language and have to know how to Whine (Dance) during Carnival If you can’t dance with these girls you won’t be able to even get in the door since during Carnival that’s what these girls like doing. Dancing in the Streets, taking pictures and exchanging numbers and occasionally kissing If you can get your foot in the door with dancing.
I have been told by all of the women I have dealt with that girls like foreign men and I have been told that repeatedly because the Social Scene in Port of Spain and especially the middle to upper echelon is small and people know each other So as a foreigner you will have a GREAT ADVANTAGE to be able to game these chicks. They are looking for something different & fresh so use that to your advantage. And do not get me started with their sweet sexy Trini accents just hearing those girls talk gets my blood pumping. Also being older (Plus 25 the girls like mature men) helps.
For Carnival and playing Mas (Being in the carnival) you have to get a costume and sign up early to be apart of the action. This year I played Mas with Yuma Vibe which was known for having the most beautiful women in during Carnival. Just picture over 1000 women in one Carnival Band with the skimpiest costumes dancing from Sun-Up to Sun-Down all throughout the streets and you have full access to all of them. Other good Carnival groups that I recommend are Tribe & Bliss. Both of those groups have a comparable amount of Beautiful Women playing MAS as well. I played with Tribe in 2006 and It was a wonderful experience.
Another good thing about playing in a Carnival Band is that the ratio of women to men is about 70% to 30% so do the math! Costumes will run you about $300 USD which includes breakfast, lunch & dinner and all the alcoholic & non alcoholic drinks you can handle served alongside the Carnival Parade Route in huge trucks where music is played from in each section from 8am to 10pm. You cannot go to Trinidad for Carnival and not play MAS so make sure you plan ahead and handle the costume and fete tickets in advance.
The Food here is an interesting mix of Indian and Caribbean faire which makes it an interesting and spicy mix. They love their Roti, Macaroni Pie, Stewed Chicken and Callaloo and strangely enough…KFC! I had to try it for myself and It was way better than the stuff they serve in the USA…They douse it with Pepper Sauce to make it extra spicy and It’s insanely good. But there is a mix of Italian, Chinese, Arabic and Indian restaurants that fill the bill here as well…More to come….

My quick thoughts
Well, to say HIS experience (according to him) was VERY different from mine would be a huge understatement. Needless to say he makes Trinidad sound like a VERY different island from the one I saw. He makes it sound pretty much like an island filled with hot easy women looking for ‘exotic’ guys to meet & hook up with. In any case, let me know what you think. Did he hit the nail on the head and provide a different, but still accurate picture of Trinidad (especially during carnival time)? Or maybe not?
