Scripted as the ultimate escape in the classic novel, Robinson Crusoe, you can cut ties with the world or choose to stay connected in Trinidad’s quieter, twin island sister of Tobago.
Just 26 miles long and six miles wide, this tiny island is tucked away in the southern Caribbean, safely outside of the region’s hurricane belt. Tobago is home to more than 300 different kinds of coral. Here you can claim your own space perched with a panoramic view or nestle near the island’s blue and tranquil waters – with a floating exchange rate, the menu options are as appetising as the local cuisine.
“I learned to look more upon the bright side of my condition, and less upon the dark side, and to consider what I enjoyed, rather than what I wanted: and this gave me sometimes such secret comforts, that I cannot express them,” from the pages of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe.
Non-nationals require a license to purchase property in Tobago and must buy in foreign currency. Property investment here does not guarantee residency nor citizenship; an attorney would be best placed to assist – we’ll make the introductions.
