[The] team was amazing.  Anything I needed or any questions that needed to be answered, you made me feel very comfortable, even if I had millions of questions, lol…Sunny Side Up Fete and J’ouvert were my two favorite events. Getting to know the group was great. Having an in house photographer was awesome

Regine

Florida, USA

My favorite was J’ouvert! There was something about everybody being covered in paint that was an equalizer. I loved that we were all in this big mess together.  Something unexpected that was a big “ah ha” for me, was how respectful everyone was of my body and my space. We were darn near naked the whole week and no one ever touched or grabbed inappropriately like they do here in the States. I also appreciated all the body positivity

Krystal

Los Angeles, USA

[I loved] knowing you guys had it covered. I’m always the responsible person on holidays and it was SOO great to have someone else in charge. The group dynamic was lovely. The webinars & WhatsApp groups helped us to feel part of everything before hand & you created a lovely, accepting atmostphere

Esha's got that Trini spirit coursing through her veins, sharing all the local secrets, from the tastiest eats to the must-see spots. Meanwhile, Carnival Connoisseur Tarik spills all the Trinidad & Tobago hacks he's gathered over the years. They're like your carnival compasses!

Our love story? Well, it all started amidst the vibrant beats of Trinidad Carnival in 2006. Yep, that's us in costume, meeting for the first time! 🎭❤️

Once we started swapping Carnival tales, we realized something crucial. There were so many kindred spirits like us, craving the Carnival buzz but feeling lost amidst the chaos of planning – tickets, costumes, safe stays? Sounds familiar?

And that’s how the magic began! Ultimate Trinidad Carnival burst onto the scene, followed by Ultimate Crop Over, Ultimate Spicemas and Ultimate St. Lucia Carnival. We're on a mission to sprinkle confidence and banish your worries, making your Carnival journey a drama-free delight.

When we say we’ve got you covered, we mean it! Forget the planning stress – all you need to do is book that flight, toss some beachwear in your suitcase, and show up at the airport. We’ll handle the rest, from A+ BBB ratings to being your safety superheroes.

Trust us, our team is not just about the party life (though we're quite the pros), we’re also beach-lounging, ‘liming’ aficionados. Think of our entire team as your Carnival guides who bring the fun and safety while leaving room for those sandy beach moments!

Attentive and personable Ambassadors!!! I feel that your openness and chill transferred to all of us travelers. You guys set the mood of camaraderie and respect. I mingled with EVERYBODY and everybody mingled with me. I loved meeting so many new people and future travel buddies

Nwanneka

New York, USA

I had no worries. All I had to do was show up! I feel I got a lot of bang for my buck. I felt like a true VIP at every event I went to. People were looking like “Who are they?”  Best organized trip I’ve ever been on

Leslie

Meeting the staff and other travelers was the best part. Watching everyone encourage and enjoy each other’s dancing, drinking, beautiful costume displays, etc. Seeing my travel-mate literally transform into a freer version of herself throughout the course of the trip

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.  Please note we ONLY match roommates in a room with 2 queen beds.

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.  Registrations will not be confirmed without payment AND a completed registration form for each person.

Please make sure your travel companion(s) complete their registration forms within 48 hours to confirm their spots. 

In regards to the costumes, which band are you associated with? How does ordering my costume work?
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 awesome road vibes, 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!

We’ll place your costume order, pickup and deliver your costume to you at the Hilton Trinidad for your personalized fitting with a member of our team.  Once Yuma launches their costume designs on their website, we’ll email you to place your order.  We’ll also ask for your measurments at this time (usually in July/August).  When your costume is confirmed, we’ll notify you via email as well.

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 (1) Ultimate Carnivalista Upgrade OR (2) just purchase a Frontline upgrade on its own. 

  1. In the Ultimate Carnivalista Upgrade, an Individual costume is a more elaborate design with a much larger backpack (feathers) than a Midline or a Frontline costume.  Its design is based on the same colour scheme and the designer’s vision of the costume section.  It is NOT a custom designed costume. however, there are many other custom designed items in this Upgrade such as your accessories and your Monday wear.
  2. If you decide you’d like a Frontline costume, we’ll let you know the exact upgrade costs in July/August 2024 when Yuma launches their costumes on their website.  Payment of your Frontline costume upgrade is due before we can order your Yuma costume on your behalf.
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 28 – Phuket (all-inclusive ticket) and on Sun Mar 2 – Sunny Side Up Breakfast Party (all-inclusive, Penthouse ticket).

2-night Upgrade: Wed Feb 26 – Lime at the Hyatt (all-white with a touch of lime party, Platinum all-inclusive ticket) and on Thurs Feb 27 – Tribe Ignite (drinks inclusive ticket).

Are flights included in your Trinidad Carnival packages?
Your flight to Trinidad is not included in our 5-night Premium Experience. To purchase your own flight, the airport code in Trinidad is POS.

We can assist you with your flight booking if you purchase the VIP Upgrade.  Just mention it during your Travel Planning Session and we’ll handle de rest!

Please note that currently, there is no COVID-19 testing or vaccination requirement needed to enter Trinidad and Tobago.  This could change and as such, we’ll update all of our registered travelers if anything changes closer to February 2025.

Passports are required to enter Trinidad and Tobago. Also, please ensure that your passport does not expire within 6 months of your travel date.

What’s your refund policy?
Should there be a cancellation by the Trinidad and Tobago government of Trinidad Carnival 2025, our intention is to offer you the following options:

  • Secure your spot and direct your deposit and payments made to Ultimate Trinidad Carnival 2026 in February 2026. We’ll advise you of your new payment plan.
  • Hold your spot and direct your deposit and payments made to Ultimate Spicemas 2025 in August 2025. We’ll advise you of your new payment plan.
  • Provide you with a full refund, less any irrecoverable fees or costs incurred to date.
  • Please note: should your account not be in good standing (i.e. 1 missed payment or more), you are not eligible for refund payments of ANY amount.

We have also noted any further applicable terms and conditions below.  These are clearly laid out in our registration form as well.

Should you wish to cancel your Ultimate Trinidad Carnival trip and upon receiving written notice of your  cancellation, our refund policy is:

  • On or before June 30, 2024, you will receive a refund of 50% of the payment you made for the trip;
  • Between July 1, 2024 and October 31, 2024, you will receive a refund of 25% of the payment you made for the trip; or
  • On or after October 31, 2024, you will not receive a refund in any amount.
  • Please note: the refund amount is based upon the sale price of the trip and does not include any transaction or other related fees.
  • Should your account not be in good standing (i.e. 1 missed payment or more), you are not eligible for refund payments of ANY amount.
Are the prices listed per person, even if I’m sharing a room with someone?
Yes, the prices listed on our website are per person, single occupancy or double occupancy (2 people sharing a room) in US dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

We do not offer triple or quadruple occupancy for our packages.  Our travelers are “grown folk” and do not care to share beds with others (lol)! 

If you have a 3rd person traveling with your group, we are happy to match them with a roommate in a room with 2 queen beds.  Please have them type “need a roommate” to their registration form and make their payment to secure their spot.
