Marabella is a former town in southern Trinidad, between San Fernando (to the south) and Pointe-à-Pierre (to the north). Originally a separate town, it was incorporated into the City of San Fernando in the 1990s.
Marabella is home to the Manny Ramjohn Stadium, one of the four major stadia in Trinidad and Tobago.
Nicknamed "The City That Never Sleeps," the city is always active as its nightlife of food vending and bars goes almost 24/7. Marabella provides a melting pot for the wide ethnic groups to "lime" and "ole talk".
