Unfortunately, if you are below the legal drinking age (21 y.o.) or not vaccinated for COVID-19, we cannot accommodate you on this trip.
If you are looking for a slower paced trip or do not like crowds, consider one of our wine trips.
Day one – Arrival in Trinidad
Arrive in Trinidad to let the fun begin. We’ll pick you up from the airport and take you to your hotel where your welcome gift and costume package await you. We recommend arriving by 5pm.
Meet your fellow carnivalistas for some welcome drinks, before we head out to The Avenue where we can grab some doubles or a gyro and bar hop.
Day two, three & four – Fete it up!
Get ready to party like there’s no tomorrow. Ideally, you arrived in Trinidad with your waist loosened but if not, these fetes will be great prep for Carnival Monday & Tuesday. FYI, Jump & Wine is #teamnosleep. Sleep who?!
Day five – J’ouvert & Carnival Monday
We’ll start the day early with paint, mud and some oil at j’ouvert. Then, we clean up and don our Monday Wear, i.e. wear what you want, take some cute pics and get ready to wine up yourself on the streets to the sweet, sweet sounds of soca.
Day six – Carnival Tuesday
The party continues! Playin’ mas is so good, you get to do it twice, this time wearing our costumes. Of course, we have to ensure to capture the moment with some pics. Then we head to the road again, cross the stage and forget about our worries.
Day seven – Local excursion
You’ll need a vacation from your vacation and we’re in no rush to go home. Today we’ll have fun exploring Trinidad, including some beach time. Can’t go to an island and not spend some time on the beach, now can we?Day eight – Depart Trinidad
All good things must come to an end. It’s time to reflect on the memories we just made together and say our goodbyes. Hopefully, we’ll see you on another of our trips.
Warning: You might need a vacation after this trip. Consider one of our wine trips.
