Another fun reason to visit Trinidad and Tobago: Hashing !

The world-famous Carnival is what everyone thinks about, but now World Inter Hash 2020 will add to the reasons to book a vacation to Trinidad and Tobago.
Situated at the southernmost end of the Caribbean Island chain and 11 miles from Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago is considered the gateway to the Americas. Home to 1.3 million culturally diverse people, Trinidad and Tobago is the melting pot of the region. These lush, rainforest islands boast of many rivers crisscrossing the land, surrounded by warm, sunny beautiful beaches.
Hashing is a fun non competing event and requires participants to run through various terrains—including beaches, hills, valleys, rivers, forested areas, cities and rural districts with friends which will allow them to view natural attractions, flora, and fauna along the way.
Loads of beer is one of the rewards for “hashers” according to the World Inter Hash website.
