Trinidad and Tobago are the southernmost islands of the Caribbean archipelago, and are geologically an extension of the South American continent.  Trinidad is separated from Venezuela by the 11 kilometre straits of the Gulf of Paria.

Trinidad possesses vast tracts of rich rain forests in the Northern Range, with the highest peak, El Cerro del Aripo, ascending to a height of 940 metres above sea level.

The territory enjoys a tropical climate with average maximum temperatures of 32C, (89F). Tobago also experiences cool temperatures, owing to the more constant north east trade winds.
