We have visited many resorts, hotels and small inns to provide you with a full resource to help you create an individual holiday. Please do not be afraid to contact proprietors directly or through the links to their own web pages. We are sure that through your own exploration you will find the perfect place to get away from the stress of day to day living.
Shopping & Services
In Tobago’s capital, Scarborough, you can visit the local market Monday to Saturday mornings for some shopping. Scarborough’s stores have a limited range of merchandise, more to tempt the browser than the serious shopper.
Farro’s, Wilson Road, across from the marketplace, offers the tastiest condiments on the island, packed into little straw baskets for you to carry back home. Sample the delectable lime marmalade, any of the hot sauces, the guava jelly, and most definitely the homemade tamarind chutney.
If you’re seeking handicrafts, especially straw baskets, head for the Shaadijas Souvenir & Gift Shop, Port Mall, also in Scarborough.
