How to get there
Airport: ANR Robinson Airport (TAB) : 10.0 km
Ferry: Scarborough Port : 1.0 km
A few international flights fly directly to Tobago but most connections are made through Trinidad. Connections to Tobago are frequent on Caribbean Airlines with several 20 min flights daily but they get booked quickly. US$45.

The ferry from Trinidad is about UD$10 and takes 2.5 hours. Motion sickness tablets are recommended.

From the airport in Tobago, take Claude Noel Hwy and make a right on Calderhall Rd South, which is two exits past the main Scarborough exit. If you past Dwight Yorke Stadium you've gone to far. Follow Calderhall Road toward Fort George. Make sure you stay on Calderhall Rd. The house is on the right 3 buildings from the end of Calderhall Rd. between a THA office and an empty lot.
