What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Very good...but some people will burn items like garbage near your home that can be a nuisance. But for the most part, very good air. - Aug 2021

Good. Some bush fires and Sahara dust. - Mar 2019

Although Trinidad is more industrialized than most people expect, the air quality is fine overall. - Apr 2017

The air quality is good. We have both wet and dry seasons. In the dry season there is some smoke from the fires. Overall the biggest issue with air would be the air conditioners that are common here. They create a lot of dust and need to be cleaned often. - Aug 2016

OK, no issues - May 2016

Good. During the dry season there are brush fires. Often the city landfill catches on fire and engulfs the metropolitan area in smoke. - Jun 2015

good - May 2015

It's ok, sometimes, the smoke from the fires at the city dumps keeps everyone indoors. Hot and humid. If that's a problem for you, don't come here. - Aug 2014
