On the west side of Trinidad 14 mi/22 km south of Port of Spain, Chaguanas (not to be confused with Chaguaramas, which is on the northwest peninsula) is home to a thriving East Indian community.

If you visit on market days, you'll think you're in Bombay. The town brims with bargains both in stores and from street vendors, and its movie theaters show both Indian and English-language films. Lion House, near the police station, is the setting for V.S. Naipaul's book A House for Mr. Biswas.
