 About Trinidad & Tobago     

Trinidad and Tobago is a twin-island Republic located off the northeast coast of South America and only eight miles from Venezuela.

Trinidad and Tobago are two very different islands offering unique experiences for every visitor. Petroleum at one time made Trinidad one of the richest colonies in the British Empire. Rather than continuing to retain the monarchy they were the first to become a Republic. It is described as "The most romantic, exotic and friendliest island in the Caribbean, not crowded, unspoiled and full of unexpected pleasures. The population of both these islands is approximately 1.3 million, comprising of descendants of various ethnic groups, Africans, Indians, Europeans, Chinese, Syrians.

Trinidad and Tobago are two distinctly different islands Trinidad offering excitement and Tobago offering tranquility.

Trinidad, the mainland is fifth largest of the West Indian islands. It received its name from Christopher Columbus because of the three low mountain ranges now known as the three sisters running from west to east. 'Trinis' as Trinidadians call themselves, are a friendly fun-loving lot. The capital city is Port of Spain, and is the largest city on the island the home of Carnival, Steel bands, Calypso and limbo.

Tobago is twenty miles northeast of the mainland, this much smaller more laid back Island is a treasure in terms of the picturesque scenery. This paradise contains some of the worlds loveliest spots including mangroves of coconut palms and miles of untamed beaches including the FAMOUS UNDERWATER delights of Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool. It is said that in spite of its small size, Tobago is unparalleled in its population of birds. In the sky, on trees, on the road sides, in the streams, on the power lines. It is impossible to avoid them. There is one main mountain range running down the middle of the covered by Tropical Evergreen Rain Forest.
