What country owns Trinidad and Tobago?
Trinidad and Tobago is an island state consisting of just these two islands: the larger Trinidad is located only 11 kilometers from the coast of Venezuela and thus South America, the smaller Tobago is located north of it. Trinidad with its 4825 square kilometers is almost 16 times as big as Tobago with its 303 square kilometers.
The islands are the southernmost of the archipelago of the Lesser Antilles. They are not of volcanic origin, like the other islands of the Lesser Antilles, but were once part of the South American mainland. Geologically, the islands are the continuation of the Venezuelan coastal cordillera.
How does it look there?
Three mountain ranges run through Trinidad from east to west. The northernmost and highest is the Northern Range, which also includes the highest mountain in the country, Cerro del Aripo. At 941 meters, however, it is also more of a hill, as its name suggests, because Cerro means hill. The mountains are covered by forest. The west of Trinidad is formed by a wide bay, the Gulf of Paria. The northern peninsula is called Chaguaramas. It has five small islands, the Bocas Islands.
Tobago is located about 30 kilometers northeast of Trinidad. A small mountain range also runs over Tobago. Its highest elevation is Pigeon Peak with 576 meters. The southwest is flat, the north is rocky. There the coast is very rugged, because it is exposed to the wind.
