The Amazon Lodge - Carnival





Carnival is truly one of the world's most amazing experiences. It is for the people of Trinidad & Tobago and run by the people of Trinidad & Tobago. Visitors are super welcome to join in.


There are no floats like Mardi Gra in New Orleans or Rio in Brazil ... this is 100,000 people just coming out to enjoy themselves.



The Amazon Lodge is the preferred Carnival destination especially if this is your first Carnival. Peter & Louise have between them played Carnival for over 40 years and are happy to share their wealth of experience with you.



The Amazon Lodge is also a favourite photo shoot site for Masqueraders. Check out these shots of Martrecia in her costume from the section Eden part of the band Tribe. The photos were taken by Julio Sifontes.

5: Please, please, please liaise with us before you book any Carnival activity. Some bands are great to play with some are not.

6: Please, please please liaise with us before you book a car. Trinidad is NOT geared for visitors. Road signs are few and far between. The steering wheel is on the right. Traffic can be horrendous. Delays of two hours or more are common.

7: YOU WILL BE SAFE. We have a track record of less crime than any World Cup or any Olympics.

8: Carnival in the capital Port of Spain is spread over the entire city. It is vital you keep in touch with us so we can be sure to get you back to The Lodge when the mas finishes as taxis and public transport will be very hard to find.

9: Please note we will not be taking any booking for Carnival 2017 before 1st August 2016. This is because we prefer to take guests who are staying longer than the minimum period.
