British travelers: Tobago is the Caribbean’s new “hotspot”
Daily Mail writer Ben Askew had nothing but good things to say about his recent vacation to Tobago. In a January 25 article, Askew said that Tobago’s “outstanding” food, beaches and local culture more than explain why British travelers have become increasingly fond of the Caribbean island in recent years.
During his time on the island, Askew dined on barbecued swordfish, took sunset bicycle trips around the plantation grounds, and danced with locals at a nearby village’s weekly street party. Tobago’s authenticity — its “complete lack of imported glitz” — impressed Askew. The locals, he said, were “welcoming,” and their lifestyles made him “begin to appreciate how different life could be.”
Direct flights from the UK are making it easier than ever for Britons to vacation in Tobago, a trend foreign investors may want to note. As tourism from the UK continues to increase, the island will need more businesses and services to accomodate the influx of vacationers and workers. The opportunities — in ICT, BPO and tourism and hospitality — come with a unique set of advantages; namely, an educated, English-speaking workforce strategically located in between North and South America.
