Discover Trinidad and Tobago

The two islands lie near the coast of Venezuela, in the south-east Caribbean. Trinidad is the southernmost island of the Caribbean chain; Tobago is 21 miles north-east of Trinidad. Both islands were once connected to the South American continent, and the flora and fauna reflect that historical link.

The nation’s capital is Port of Spain, in north-west Trinidad. Other important Trinidadian towns include San Fernando, Arima, Chaguanas and Point Fortin. Tobago’s capital is Scarborough.

Trinidad is the home of Caribbean Carnival, as well as calypso the musical form which fuels the national festival and of steelband music, which evolved in Port of Spain 60 years ago. The national currency is the Trinidad & Tobago dollar which is approximately $6 TTD to $1 US.

Trinidad and Tobago enjoys a warm tropical climate, tempered by the north-east trade winds. The average daytime temperature is 29º C(83º F), with maximums in the mid-30s.
