Hey everyone!

My company is sending me to Trinidad to work at Galeota Point.

Can anyone tell me about life down there? Accommodation, entertainment etc. I can find almost nothing online about areas outside PoS.

Thanks in advance!

Galeota is way off the beaten path, even for Trinidad.

Close to a village called Guayaguayare. Things to do would include the beach, hiking, and nature in general. Only been there a few times, it's really pretty down there, but not much of anything to do that I seen.

The government has been trying to improve the port for quite some time. This was a treacherous little port to get in and out of with an oilfield vessel. They were working on the access roads as well.

Probably your best bet for a house or apartment is going to be Radix or Mayaro, both up the coast from Galeota

Thanks for the reply. You've given me more information in one post than the rest of the Internet and my company combined.

Sounds like I'm going to have a peaceful existence for a few years!

Hi, if you don't mind sharing the company you work for, or the industry or your job role?

I'm desperately trying to find an Expat opportunity to work in TnT to be closer to my fiance.

Hey English,

Galeota is a very quiet place and very scenic. If you like quiet places near to the beach you should be fine. The nearest main town is Mayaro. Don't expect fine dining restaurants, but if you like seafood you can buy lots of it relatively cheaply. This includes Lobster at times. good luck.
