A bus from the airport to herr will cost you $3T but tickets must be bought in advance. Alternatively a local taxi should cost you less than $20T. The hire taxis can be more expensive ($90T).
The easiest way to get a taxi is by the Doubles at Castries Street/north side road but these will cost you a lot more than the local taxis near KFC. Make sure you pick the taxi stand marked with the direction you want to head (e.g. west/north).
A local taxi to Black Rock will cost around $10t but expect $100+ at Castries street.

Corbin local wildlife, Near Mason Hall. Roy Corbin is helping educate people so that many of Tobago's endangered wildlife such as armadillos, ocelot, snakes and caimans do not get eaten by the locals. There is some great birdwatching to be done here and tours (by appointment only) are affordable ($25usd) and educational!
There are far fewer options here in comparison to Crown Point. Most places do not stay open late so options are a little limited and opening hours are unreliable. Do not rely on Google maps - many places listed no longer exist or have changed opening hours.
Cow heel and pig tail soups are very easy to find around here. Chinese restaurants open quite late.
- Salsa Kitchen Tapas Restaurant, 8 Pump Mill Road, ☏ . Not a typical tourist type restaurant, tucked away on a side street in the outskirts of Scarborough, some taxi drivers call it the hidden kitchen. By reservation only, small and intimate, there are only 5 tables, seating a maximum of 20 at a time. Seating is on a terrace illuminated by miniature lights, surrounded by enormous greenery and banana trees. The food is all cooked fresh to order, coming mainly in Tapas style. A variety of different dishes including, fish, pork, beef tenderloin, shrimp, garlic bread, salads, pizza, lobster and scallops are available. Many of the dishes are Creole in flavor with a Caribbean twist. There is a small bar featuring a wide range of rums among the usual beverages and house wine is available by the carafe.
As well as several hotels there are many more affordable Airbnb options.
