Trinidad Carnival 2012: 8 Weeks To Go!

8 weeks left until one of the biggest and greatest carnivals in the Western hemisphere!

But only 1 week left until Eloquence, Inc. shuts down TNT 2012 travel planning to focus on the fun, sun, and rum, for those who are already onboard and ready to finish sorting out all the elements of a great carnival: airfare, housing, costume, fetes, and more!  But the memories are the greatest of all. :)

More information on costumes you can purchase to be custom-made for Trinidad here.  Many have sold out but many are still available!
Next year this could be you!

Contact Eloquence, Inc. for more information or to sign up for trip planning services for Trinidad Carnival 2013 if you're an early bird!

Trinidad Carnival 2012: Are You Ready For Some Fun...Sun...Rum? :)

Trinidad Carnival is one of the world's annual pre-Lenten season celebrations, and the largest of the English-speaking carnivals in the Western hemisphere, second only to Brazil Carnival.  Carnival means "farewell to the flesh" and signals the last indulgence before the giving up of meat, among other things, for Lent.  Most countries with a Catholic presence celebrate the start of Lent by "getting it out of their system" so to speak.  

The major differences, and advantages, of Trinidad over Brazil are that for one, Trinidad is an English-speaking country, and for two, there are no samba schools practicing for months before which you can only watch during carnival time, all Trinidad's carnival bands (and there are MANY) allow anyone who pays for their costume, to deposit, have it custom made according to your measurements, and play mas!  The carnival parade itself is 2 days long, with an overnight break to sleep a bit, of course, and is best summarized as fun, sun, and rum (for those who drink, otherwise the bands and vendors provide water and other tasty beverages).

Must purchase 1 of each 1/3 category (deposit, second payment, final payment) to total $620 total ticket, plus Eventbrite fees.  Miami International nonstop to Port of Spain, Thursday February 16 returning Thursday February 23, 2012.  Connecting flight from your point of origin to Miami can be purchased up to 2 weeks before departure, and most airports have nonstop flights to Miami.
Please contact for more info.  This is purchased after your airfare.  All double occupancy and air conditioned.
Please contact for more info.  This is purchased after housing. It is optional but an exciting part of the experience.
Girl Power 2011
Please contact for more info.  This is purchased after the fete package.  It is optional but an AMAZING part of the experience. 

D'Krewe Carnival 2011
Please contact for more info.  This is purchased after the fete package.  It is optional but Monday Mas doesn't start off quite right without first getting dirty and dancing in the streets covered in your choice of mud, paint, or chocolate!

If you are attending Trinidad Carnival alone/as a solo traveller, please let me know and I will try to find another solo traveller to pair you with for housing.  If you are travelling solo it is definitely highly recommended that you purchase a fete package after taking care of airfare, and play mas (get in costume) so that you have the added benefit of the security at the fetes and the security provided as part of being in a mas (costume) band.  It is further suggested that you consider playing with D'Krewe Carnival, as that is the band Eloquence, Inc. will play mas with for 2012.  Then you are automatically no longer solo because you will become familiar between now and Carnival with at least one other traveller! :)
