Work | Fête | Lime | Repeat

Have you ever visited a country only to find out you missed the local hotspots and the best things to do?

You no longer have to worry about falling for tourist traps and scams when you travel with us!

After realizing that many individuals missed out on the best activities and experiences, your co-hosts Esha and Tarik decided to create THE Ultimate Trinidad Carnival Experience.

Born from Trini parents, Esha shares her love of local food, sights and activities so you can experience Trinidad like a local. Although he’s not a Trini, Carnival Connoisseur Tarik, shares his tips and tricks that he’s learned over the years about Trinidad & Tobago.

With our Trinidad Carnival packages, together, we show the best that Carnival and Trinidad have to offer!

We take the stress away from your Trinidad Carnival planning by:

Planning a fully curated and hosted trip, so you do not have to worry about trip details

Arranging your transportation during your stay so you can get from place to place with ease

Helping you with costume ordering, pick up, fitting and delivery, so you don’t have to do it yourself

 

Unlike other travel agencies that simply book your trip, we coordinate even the tiniest details, so you don’t have to

You’re in for an experience like no other

Here’s what you can expect from our Trinidad Carnival packages:

Co-Founders, Events by Ashé LLC

We met during Trinidad Carnival in 2006 while playing mas.  Yes, we were both in costume; this photo was taken when we actually met!  

Once we started dating, we talked about our first Trinidad Carnivals.  That’s when we realized that there were others out there like us who wanted to experience this amazing festival, but were unsure how to get party tickets, a costume or even secure a safe place to stay in a foreign country.

That’s when our 1st Experience, Ultimate Trinidad Carnival was born.  Ultimate Summer Carnival and Ultimate Girls Getaway soon followed!

Our purpose is to inspire confidence and remove all of your worries by taking care of everything.  This gives you the freedom to let go and have fun in a drama-free environment.

With us, there’s no planning or coordination required from your end.  All you have to do is buy your flight, pack and show up at the airport!  We’ll handle the rest.

We are real people and our business has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, so you can trust that we’re a credible business.  As the ONLY fully hosted Trinidad Carnival package provider, our top priority is your safety. 

Also about us: we love to have a good time and love to party but we also like to “lime” on de beach!

Read what our Carnivalistas have to say

All of the fetes were amazing and exceeded my expectations.  I also met so many new lifelong friends along the way.  I would definitely travel with Ultimate Trinidad Carnival again.

Camesha

California, USA

I came thousands of miles alone. My first ever trip away completely by myself not knowing a soul. Feeling so safe with the team and welcomed by the leaders has given me the confidence to now solo travel regularly. Trinidad carnival was a life long dream for me too. So a double whammy!

Georgia

United Kingdom

For those inquiring on how I booked my carnival trip this is it. This is the most amazing, well organized and genuinely fun trip I have ever been on. There is no guess work, no stress.  They take care of EVERYTHING for you. Bonus Points for being black owned ❤️

Frequently Asked Questions about our Trinidad Carnival packages

I’ll be traveling to Trinidad alone because none of my friends or family want to go. Can you find a roommate for me?

Absolutely!  We’ve worked with several of our clients over the years to match them up with roommates.  Roommates during Trinidad Carnival time usually form lasting friendships.  Here’s how it works: when we get 2 people looking for a roommate, we’ll reach out to you both via email so you can connect.  You’ll then decide if you’d like to talk over the phone or even meet up if you’re in the same city!

With a roommate, you can take advantage of our double occupancy pricing.

You may also want to consider a single occupancy package if you’d prefer to room alone.  See the single supplement information above in the 5-night Premium Experience section for details – click here.

How do I register more than 1 person?

Each person in your travel party will need to register themselves in the “register today” section on this page.

On the registration form, please enter the name of your travel companion in the “roommate” field.  We’ll use this information to match you both in your room.  If you need a roommate, please enter “need roommate” in this field.

After completing our registration form, click “submit” and you’ll be directed to PayPal to make your payment.  After we receive your payment, you’ll be sent a confirmation email of your registration.

Please make sure your travel companion(s) complete their registration forms within 48 hours to confirm their spots. Registrations will not be confirmed without payment AND a completed registration form per person.

In regards to the costumes, which band are you associated with?

Our costume provider of choice is Yuma.  They’re an all-inclusive costume provider in Trinidad.  As a part of the Yuma experience, you’ll get a beautiful costume, lunch, snacks, full bar access, security, rest stations and stand-by emergency services (just in case you need it).

We’re confident that Yuma will take care of you, provide you with a beautiful costume and show you a GREAT time!

Is there an opportunity to upgrade to a Frontline costume in your 5-night Premium Experience?

Yes!  If you’d like a larger costume than the Midline costume included in our 5-night Premium Experience, you can upgrade to a larger costume.  You can either buy the Ultimate Carnivalista Upgrade OR just purchase a Frontline upgrade on its own. 

We’ll let you know the exact upgrade costs in August 2022 when Yuma launches their costumes on their website.

What parties (fêtes) are included in your 5-night Premium Experience and 2-night Upgrade?

The fêtes included in our Ultimate Trinidad Carnival packages are “tried, tested and true” so you’re guaranteed to have a great time.  See below for specifics:

5-night Premium Experience: Fri Feb 17 – Phuket (all-inclusive ticket) and on Sun Feb 19 – Sunny Side Up Breakfast Party (all-inclusive, Penthouse ticket).
2-night Upgrade: Wed Feb 15 – Lime at the Hyatt (all-white with a touch of lime party, Platinum all-inclusive ticket) and on Thurs Feb 16 – Tribe Ignite (drinks inclusive ticket).
