0301 Trinidad and Tobago

private swap

The archipelagic republic of Trinidad and Tobago is located on the southernmost corner of the Caribbean Sea and boasts of diverse terrain and several small landforms. Lying northeast of Venezuela, the dual-island nation of Tobago and Trinidad is home to several tourist hotspots like Port of Spain, San Fernando, Scarborough and more. Of the two Caribbean islands, Trinidad is bigger and more densely populated than Tobago which only claims 6% of the total area and 4% of the entire population.  
Although Trinidad and Tobago are two separate islands, they are treated as one single country. Trinidad was named by Christopher Columbus, who discovered this island during his third voyage to the New World on 31 July, 1498. 
The denizens of Tobago are called Tobagonians and those hailing from Trinidad are called Trinidadians or Trinis. Together the people of Trinidad and Tobago are referred to as "Trinbagonians."
