Trinidad & Tobago January 7, 2022

Officially known as the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, this island nation consists of two main islands and numerous smaller islands.

Trinidad is the larger of the two islands. Tobago is the smaller and more mountainous island.

Trinidad and Tobago is the southernmost island nation of the Caribbean.

Located 81 miles south of Grenada and only 6 miles off the coast of Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago shares maritime boundaries with Barbados, Grenada, and Venzuela.

Trinidad and Tobago has changed hands many times after the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1498... Spanish, British, Dutch, and Courlander (Duchy of Courland is now a part of Latvia) colonizers have all laid claim to the islands. The island nation finally became an independent nation in 1962.

In addition to the influence from the colonizing countries, Trinidad and Tobago is also known for its African and Indian cultures.

The average January high is 84 degrees... so your first port stop should be a nice change from the cold of January on the mountain!
