Carnival Checklist: A Guide to Real Culture at Trinidad Carnival

February 5, 2015

When: Carnival Monday night (Feb. 16)
Where: The Hills of Paramin (transport necessary)


The hills of Paramin, located in North West Trinidad and accessible from Port of Spain, have for years welcomed the masses on Carnival Monday night to party with the residents. But the real show begins at around 10pm when the devils come down the hill, covered in blue paint, beating large biscuit tins and spitting fire. The event is free but we advise you walk with some TT dollars to pass out to them or you may end up with a little blue on you.
