If you're interested in Trinidad's native Amerindian culture, consider a visit to Arima, which is in the island's hilly interior 16 mi/26 km east of Port of Spain.
The island's third-largest city, Arima has a small museum in the Santa Clara Carib Community building with an extensive collection of Amerindian artifacts and a craft center. (The museum and the center are run by a group of people who are descendants of the island's original settlers.)
There is also horse racing at Santa Rosa Park in Arima. Phone 868-646-1986.
On the way to Arima from Port of Spain, you can see the Spanish Church in Arouca and the Ajoupa Hut, representative of pre-Columbian shelters.
