Family Shopping in Trinidad and Tobago

The best purchase on Trinidad and Tobago for children are steel pans. Child-size drums are available for under $10 and are marked with the notes; some also come with simple song books. The magical sound of the pan will bring back the vacation memories for months to come and is just about indestructible.

You can find steel pans for sale at the Piarco International Airport in Trinidad. Here duty-free shops tempt travelers; you'll also find also a good selection of locally made items ranging from hot sauces to copper jewelry to tiny steel pans.

Port of Spain is also home to several sprawling malls. The newest and most complete is the Grand Bazaar, an open-air extravaganza with fine shops much like you’d find at home offering clothing, jewelry, Indian clothing, the ubiquitous T-shirt, and spices.

Headed to Tobago? If you're not a shopper, you'll love it. The most colorful shopping is found in Scarborough’s open-air market, filled with tropical fruits and vegetables.
