Evenings in Castara

My husband & I are planning a trip to Trinidad & Tobago in January 2015 and really like the look of Castara for a few nights. We are favouring Castara Retreats but I think there is a minimum stay of 6 nights so we need to make sure that we won't be bored if we stay this long.

We are planning on having a hire car with us so we can get out and about during the days or sit on the beach or watch the birds.. We just want to get a good idea of how much, or little, there is to do in the evenings. We don't want to self cater so need to make sure that there is a reasonable enough selection of places to go for evening drinks and dinner.

We are not party animals but don't want to be going to bed at 9pm either. Are there places to go for a drink after dinner where we can have a chat to locals and other tourists?

To everything. There are a number of places to eat and drink in the village. None are tourist/visitor "only" so you will have plenty of opportunities to "lime" with the local villagers and visitors alike.

Once you have been in Castara a couple of days you may wish to extend your stay.

Most people do.........if not you WILL be back. such is the lure of Castara!

I LOVE Castara!! Anywhere up north is beautiful, but Castara does have a certain charm about it. Enjoy

We stayed at Castara Retreats last April & loved it. One of our favourite things to do in the evening was to walk down to watch the local football matches . The pitch is at the centre of the village and the matches are brilliant , with some of the funniest commentary I've ever heard. The locals are super friendly & the women are often selling homemade spicy pasties that are fab. There was a match most nights when we were there. You can't beat the margaritas at Castara retreats though.
