Port of Spain will host the only T20 match between West Indies and India. It will be followed by two ODI's here again as the capital of Trinidad and Tobago gets set to host Suresh Raina's team.

The main center of the region, Port of Spain is an important port city and has every ingredient that make up for the famed Caribbean holiday. Be it it's nightlife that has on offer something to suit every budget, to it's entertainment complex's spread all over. International stars like Rihana, Beyonce and Akon have visited and performed here and can vouch for the party-mania that this city is always immersed in.

Port of Spain is also a cultural hub making it appealing for those who are not into noise and revelry. Having a rich past that had a confluence of Spanish, British and French 'visitors,' this city can appeal to the aesthetic senses without making it overtly evident.

The National Museum and Art Gallery of Trinidad and Tobago is also situated here and is worth a visit.

Do not miss the carnivals hosted here which can give stiff competition to the ones hosted by the neighbours to the east. Overall, a place that can be as relaxing as it can be pulsating, depending on how the tourist sets his itinerary.
