I thought this forum was getting lonely after a year of no visitors ;)
But I do have a 'legitimate' query:
We'll be staying in Castara for 3 weeks - soon! - and much as I'd like to think we'll be enjoying the varied eateries in the village, there will surely be occasions when we will want to cook the fresh fish-of-the-day ourselves.
Now, my wife likes to use herbs and spices in her cooking.......I know Tobago food can be quite "spicy" so there must be some available on the island but.....how is Castara placed in this regard? Of course we will be making the traditional supermarket stop on the way from the airport, but what do you all recommend we should bring from home? If anything???
And......unrelated ....but for those of you there now: how is the mosquito/sand fly situation? Same as normal for this time of year? Better? Or worse than usual?
All input greatly appreciated as usual.....but, please, let's see if we can keep "safety/security" issues out of this thread ;) ;)
