Charlotteville Entrepreneur

It's not uncommon to see a Tobagonian storefront advertising a range of sea-going activities. And with the high tourist population, everyone needs a car rental or a taxi. It's the tropics, cold drinks are always a welcome relief.

But add on a plethora of web and computer services including cd burning and scanning (for those vacationers still using film cameras, perhaps), fax and copying, and cell phone rentals, and you've got the makings of a true entrepreneur.

Imagine all this business being conducted out of a beachfront hut smaller than some car interiors, and you can perhaps understand the choice of name – de Maximum – cause that's certainly the value apparently being squeezed out of this narrow slice of Caribbean real estate!

Had happy times in Charlotteville. Is Eastman's restaurant still going?

First saw Charlotteville in a British Airways article on Tobago, they pictured the cricket pitch, did not do the place justice.....this is more like it....seemed liked an island in its own right...everything you want in one place.
