Trinidad
Trinidad and Tobago Travel Guide
"Trinidad and Tobago are just off the coast of Venezuela. Once connected to the South American mainland, a channel developed over time separating Trinidad from the mainland. Trinidad is host to an obvious continuation of the Andes, These beautiful mountains provide sites for some very interesting nature preserves. Much of the remainder of the island is given to mangrove swamps fed by the island's many rivers.

Tobago and its big sister, Trinidad, are the Caribbean's odd couple. Tiny Tobago is relaxed, slow-paced and largely undeveloped. Trinidad is a densely populated, thriving island with a cosmopolitan population and strong regional influences."
