Trinidad & Tobago

The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is an archipelagic state in the southern Caribbean, lying northeast of the South American state of Venezuela and south of Grenada in the Lesser Antilles. The country covers an area of 1,979 sq mi and consists of two main islands, Trinidad and Tobago, and numerous smaller landforms. Trinidad is the larger and more populous of the main islands; Tobago is much smaller, comprising about 6% of the total area and 4% of the population. For tourism, and especially for honeymoon couples, the nation lies outside the hurricane belt. Adventure or solitude await on these beautiful islands.
