Particular attention should be paid to personal safety. In Trinidad, and particularly in the area of the capital Port of Spain, you are at risk of attacks and muggings. Attacks against foreigners have been reported in many locations. The level of crime is quite high in big cities. It is therefore advisable not to carry large amounts of money with you, and to have your ID documents photocopied in advance. Be especially careful in the dark hours. Avoid secluded places. In Trinidad, tourists frequently become victims of attacks and pickpocketing.
Recommended vaccines and personal hygiene advice:
There are no special requirements for vaccines before travel. There is a danger of infection with viruses with similar symptomatology of dengue and zika. The MFA recommends that travellers follow the advice of the Ministry of Health and the Bulgarian Red Cross to protect themselves against mosquito bites and infection with the Zika virus: http://www.redcross.bg/advice/zika.html.
An initial period of acclimatisation is required, during which heavy physical strains should be avoided. Drink enough fluids during the hot period. Avoid fatty foods as well as excessive alcohol consumption. Observe proper personal hygiene, with frequent hand washing. Carefully consume fresh fruit and salads. Do not drink tap water.
