Trinidad and Tobago, the twin islands that are located in the Caribbean Sea, near to the coast of Venezuela, offers the visitors an ideal kitesurfing destination. Tourists will discover Calypso music, limbo dance, Steelpan steel drums and the colourful carnival; every sound is transformed in music and every step is turned into dance in the heavenly coasts of Trinidad and Tobago. Because of the tropical climate, waters are always warm and there are different wind conditions, which allow kitesurfers to practice different techniques depending on the wind direction. Kitesurfing holidays in Trinidad and Tobago will allow you to discover one of the most amazing cultures and to live a unique kitesurfing experience.
