What Time is it on Trinidad and Tobago?
 

Most travelers to Trinidad and Tobago quickly acclimate themselves to the climate and time change on the islands. Once you settle into the relaxing life on "Caribbean time," you too will be quick to forget your jet lag.

The time on Trinidad and Tobago is four hours behind Greenwich Mean Time, placing it in the Atlantic Standard Time zone. This means that visitors from the United Kingdom and most of Europe will experience time changes of four to six hours. Time on the islands is one hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time observed on the East Coast of the United States. Trinidad and Tobago, do not, however, observe daylight-saving time, which means that in April through October, the time on Trinidad and Tobago will be the same as destinations observing Eastern Standard Time.
