Crime Level and Security
Particular attention should be given to personal safety. In Trinidad, and particularly in the area of the capital city Port of Spain, you are at risk of assaults and muggings. Attacks on foreigners have been reported in many locations. The crime level in bigger cities is quite high. It is therefore advisable not to carry large sums of money on your person, and also to have photocopied your ID documents in advance. Be especially careful in the dark hours. Avoid secluded places as much as possible. In Trinidad, tourists are also often reported as victims of violence and pick-pockets.
You are allowed to bring into the country an unlimited amount of money in local and/or foreign currency, however, it must be declared.
