Caribbean island with something for everyone

Ourtribune.com: "Trinidad is the larger island of the country of Trinidad and Tobago. It is the southernmost island of the Caribbean and lies a mere 7 miles off of the cost of Venezuela. Trinidad isn’t known for its tourism yet, but their government is making steps to let the beauty of the island and its culture be more accessible to tourists by helping larger hotels come in and increase their cruise stop business. The Trinidad and Tobago government actually owns the mixed-use waterfront esplanade that is being overhauled. When completed, it will include new office towers, retail space, gardens, terraces and the Hyatt Regency Trinidad which opened in late 2007. Although more of a business traveler destination, the Hyatt Regency Trinidad is only 30 minutes from their international airport and is located on the water of the capital, Port of Spain."
