How To Get Here:
Airline connections to Tobago seem to be in a constant state of flux, so a travel agent is your best bet for up-to-the-minute information. As we write, the island is serviced directly by British Airways (from London); Condor (from Frankfurt) and Liat (from Grenada) and plans are afoot for the arrival in the near future of US Airways and Britain's Virgin Airline.
National airline BWIA West Indies Airways operates a number of international flights from Miami, New York, Washington, London and Manchester; but all of these necessitate disembarking in Trinidad, and transferring to a local shuttle flight. The same goes for American Airlines (via San Juan, Puerto Rico).
If you can't book a direct flight, simply connect through Trinidad. A number of international airlines fly into Trinidad's Piarco International Airport, from where BWIA West Indies Airways and Tobago Express operate frequent shuttle flights to and from Tobago. The round-trip airfare on these inter-Island flights is approximately US$50.
Once you land at Tobago's Crown Point International Airport you're only an hour and a half from Speyside. It is possible to get here via public transportation -- for instance, a shared route taxi or maxi taxi from Scarborough -- but this is not recommended for first-time visitors. It is far easier to hire an airport taxi for $40 US ($60 US after 10 p.m.). Or we will arrange an airport pickup for you. There is also a government bus that services the route several times a day; it can be boarded at the Bus Terminal in Scarborough.
If you prefer to drive, you can rent a car or jeep for between $40 and $50 US per day, depending on the rental agent and the age of the vehicle. The Windward Road to Speyside is incredibly scenic, but it's also twisty and narrow -- and we drive on the left. These are things to keep in mind, if you arrive after dark. Day-time drivers will enjoy the trip, if they have the time to take it slowly. Motorcycle rentals are also possible, but probably not advisable if you arrive at night.
