Tobago Named among the Best places to elope in the Caribbean

In USATODAY, Tobago has been named among others as one of the top places to get married within the Caribbean islands. Tobago was among some ten other Caribbean countries that included Nassau Bahamas, US Virgin Islands, North Jamaica and St. Lucia.

Tobago was described as followers: 

Tobago is almost as far south as you can go in the Caribbean; only its sister island Trinidad is closer to South America. Although English-speaking, it's also one of the most diverse islands, celebrating marriages for not only Christians and Jews, but also Muslims and Hindus, courtesy of its heritage of immigrants from South Asia. Neighboring Trinidad is highly industrialized – calypso and the steel drum, made from oil drums discarded by the island's numerous refineries, were born there — while Tobago bills itself as "the natural choice," a reference to its rolling hills covered in tropical foliage. There's an annual mid-summer festival devoted to marriage, the Tobago Ole Time Wedding Festival. Men dressed in swallow-tail coats and ladies dressed in satin gowns form a procession that meanders through the village of Moriah. Every year, a few newly married visitors join in.

The Blue Water Inn, located on the island's northeast tip, has both a wedding planner and scenic venues for your vows: a pristine sand beach or poolside overlooking the turquoise water with a backdrop of Batteaux Bay and the mountainous spine of Little Tobago.

Paperwork is minimal; you'll need to be in Tobago for three days, bring notarized copies of any previous divorces plus a photo i.d. (passport) and apply for a license (about $55 USD).
