It’s been a busy web year for us at MEP, launching two new websites for our two biggest publications, Caribbean Beat and Discover Trinidad & Tobago. The former is particularly challenging as we migrate content from old versions of our website (circa the late 1990s) and try to continue digitising our 125-strong archive of issues. So bear with us as we continue to push the boulder up the mountain!
Nevertheless, we continue to receive high traffic from those who love and want to explore Trinidad & Tobago and the Caribbean. And it’s always fascinating to see the things that draw the greatest numbers of visitors – sometimes they’re ones we expect, and sometimes they’re a complete surprise!
Here are the top articles on each site for 2013!

We can’t believe our final 2013 issue of Caribbean Beat is out already (#124, November/December 2013) – both on our website and of course on Caribbean Airlines and Air Jamaica planes – and that we’re now in pre-production for our January/February issue. But just like that, 2013 draws to a close.
Each year, dating from the days of the Tobago Jazz Festival through to its successor the Tobago Jazz Experience (TJE), the April event has always featured some of the world’s top jazz, R&B, neo-soul, fusion and of course local and regional acts. Their sixth edition – which runs Saturday 19th – Sunday 27th, 2014 – looks to be no exception. As always, the event is designed to showcase all that Tobago has to offer by taking visitors on a tour of the island through concerts hosted in villages across the island.
This year’s edition will be headlined by nine-time Grammy winner, John Legend, as was announced today at a press conference hosted by Trinidad & Tobago at the World Travel Market in London, UK. It was also today at the WTM that we at MEP unveiled our latest issue of Discover Trinidad & Tobago magazine, which will be all new for 2014, and with a new website launching over the coming weeks.
