The road goes all the way to Chagaramas, but I always enjoy the drive through the urban section in St. James. Always interesting life going on.

You can find almost anything here, from restaurants to take aways, to shops of different kinds and whatever you are looking for.

Okay, this is kind of weird, writing a review of a road. But in looking at the other reviewers' comments, I see the value of talking about the POS-end, with the bars and restaurants in St. James...yup, good limin' there, Mon.

If you're a "yachtie", and you've rented a beater Nissan Sunny from EconoCar, keep a sharp eye out for some seriously-deep potholes on the way back from Chaguaramas. Twice I've killed a tire (sorry, "tyre") and had to limp to the next piece of decent shoulder (which is a rare commodity) and get filthy changing it.

Another advisory re this stretch of road: the new Chaguaramas Development Authority boardwalk/beach area is EXTREMELY popular with the locals on weekends. The traffic back to POS can be horrific at dusk on Saturdays and Sundays.

This is real Trini culture. Pay a visit here from 7pm to 11pm for a real good time!

Nothing spectacular but I've eaten from a wonderful roti shop called the Hotte Shop. Great tasting roti!
