1. Hiking here is a walk in the park.
Not quite. If you’re not careful, you may stumble upon a poisonous Fer de Lance snake or someone’s marijuana fields. Hike with local hiking groups and wear proper gear; that means leave the flip flops and short shorts at home.
2. It’s okay to use PH taxis.
In Trinidad and Tobago, cars usually carry different plates: P for Private and H for Hire. Although you will never actually see a PH plate, it refers to a private vehicle owner who hustles for passengers. You never know what could happen to you in a PH taxi. Plus, you’re not covered by any insurance if the car gets in an accident. Instead, only use taxis with the H number plate. On another note, don’t ever offer a short route taxi driver TT$100 note and expect change. All you will get is an angry stare, a big steups and probably, a cuss out.
