That was funny, Cornell. I real laugh but what about some real Carnival tips like.

1. Don't walk with your wallet to fetes. When you land put your passport and ID in a safe place. Pickpockets are rampant during Carnival time.

2. Try to buy your tickets in advance, the ticket price skyrockets when you reach by the door. Example, Insomnia - they were trying to charge $400-$500 TT and that's not an all-inclusive fete. Also sometimes they sell bootleg tickets.

If anybody else have any to add, let's hear.


Actually I heard them advertising insomina on the radio in Trinidad as an all inclusive fete. I don't know but Im getting tickets early anyway
