Trinidad and Tobago Travel Information


Trinidad and Tobago Flag Trinidad and Tobago is a country in the southern Caribbean, consisting of two main islands, and many smaller islands. It has no land borders, but has maritime boundaries with Barbados, Guyana, and Venezuela.

The population of Trinidad and Tobago was estimated as 1.3 million as of 2009. The capital of the country is Port of Spain on the island of Trinidad, and there two other large municipalities as well: Chaguanas and San Fernando (both also on the island of Trinidad).

Unlike most other Caribbean countries, Trinidad and Tobago's economy is primarily industrial, and is particularly focused around the petroleum and natural-gas industry (this industry accounts for approximately 40% of GDP and about 80% of exports). Other important economic sectors include manufacturing (particularly food, beverages, and cement), and tourism - although tourism is not as important as in some other Caribbean countries.

The Rough Guide to Trinidad and Tobago is the definitive guide to the most exciting and unexplored of the Caribbean islands.

The Contexts section provides informed coverage of the islands’ history, politics and current affairs, as well as the low-down on soca, calypso and steelpan, religion, fauna and flora, and books, while the patois glossary unpicks local slang. This guide comes complete with clear maps and practical information on accommodation and transportation; and recommendations of all the best places for eating, drinking, and music.
