Wildlife Holidays in Trinidad and Tobago

Tell me about Trinidad & Tobago …

Lying just a short distance from the coast of Venezuela, the islands of Trinidad and Tobago are an interesting blend of Caribbean and Latin American influences.

Famous for its annual Carnival, Trinidad shares the relaxed Caribbean attitude to life, while its production of oil and asphalt helps make it the most prosperous island in the West Indies.

The ethnic composition of Tobago is largely Afro-Caribbean. In Trinidad there is also a considerable population of Asian descent, originating from extensive immigration from the Indian subcontinent in earlier years.
