which I reside in, is host to a bevy of multicultural origins, being a cosmopolitan society on a small island cultural staples is a constant, even out of my city. People can be verbose in excess; maybe this plays to your favour or its antithetical to your nature however there is equal opportunity to be with none but yourself. Being a denizen on countryside land with an incline relief vegetation is dense, portraying a natural, tropical beauty of the small island; idyllic for reclusive strolls, sightseeing, photos etc.

Arima is a borough which has historical significance because it was once occupied by the indigenous people of Trinidad. Arima is about 20 minutes from the Piarco International Airport. It is on the east side of the island and there are many communities and schools in that area.

Anyone locating to Arima should know the rich history of the area. Known as the original home of the indigenous “Caribs” otherwise known as the “first people”, Arima also is home to local celebrities like Holly Betaudier, and Louis Nurse, both popular “music affectionados.” Arima was the starting point of the now defunct railroad transit system that was popular in the Mid 1900s. Arima is a close knit community, where there are no strangers and everyone is “family”.

The city which I live in, is called Arima and is in a Caribbean island called Trinidad. It is a small city with several businesses. It is laid back. There are several areas of interest, most of which are in the outskirts of the city. There is a Mayor.

We have great tropical weather, awesome beaches and an amazing wide range of flora and fauna. The people are nice and friendly and we have a wide variety of cultures residing on our Island paradise. It is easy to get around via public transportation and there are many sites that one can visit to learn about our rich history and heritage. The old is amazing and one has a wide selection to choose from to satisfy one’s culinary taste. Our town is the perfect mix of the old ways versus the modern world.
