  • Message from the Honourable Shamfa Cudjoe on World Tourism Day

    Today, September 27, 2017, Trinidad and Tobago joins the international community in celebrating World Tourism Day. This year’s theme “Sustainable Tourism – a Tool for Development” signifies the importance of tourism in alleviating poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all. The theme is most appropriate this year as I extend my heartfelt sympathy to our neighbouring territories of the Caribbean that were affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

    Due to prevailing weather conditions and unforeseen delays in the completion of the paving works, the opening of the parking facility near to the Maracas Fishing Complex has been delayed further. The Ministry of Tourism is presently upgrading this facility so as to provide some measure of vehicle parking to Maracas beach goers as the main car park is no longer available to the public due to the on-going upgrade works at Maracas Beach.
