Trinidad and Tobago
Top tip: Carnival … from stickfighting to limbo competitions
Geographically the islands are part of the South American continent being located about 7 miles off the Venezuelan Coast in the Southern Caribbean.. Along the north of Trinidad runs the Northern Range of mountains, looming over the country’s capital, Port of Spain. South of Port of Spain on the west coast the terrain is low. On the north and east coasts lie beautiful beaches. Central Trinidad is flat and largely given over to agriculture.
The tropical climate is tempered by northeast trade winds. The dry season is from November to May, but it is hottest between June and October. The climate in Tobago is pleasant most of the year and although May, June and July can be wet at times, the differentiation between the wet and dry seasons is much less acute.
