Port of Spain’s residential communities fan out to the valleys and hills around the western Northern Range: Belmont & Laventille, Woodbrook, Newtown & St. James, St. Clair, Maraval, St. Ann’s & Cascade.
Tobago was once joined to the South American mainland, and has inherited a continental legacy of plants, birds, insects, mammals and topography. Its small size, 21 miles long and seven miles wide, offers easy access to tropical rain forests, idyllic white sand beaches, waterfalls and lagoons.
Mountains covered with tropical rain forest; mangrove swamps and savannahs; rivers, waterfalls and jungle-green seashores — these are just part of our unique Caribbean/South American legacy. We may be separated by just a few miles of sea, but not long ago — a few seconds of geological time — we were part of the mainland.
