The country of Trinidad and Tobago consists of two large islands and several smaller landmasses in the Caribbean Sea, off the northeast coast of South America. Once a British colony, today Trinidad and Tobago is among the most prosperous and developed of the Caribbean nations. Many international companies have established factories or facilities on the island, and it is a leading producer of oil and natural gas. The two main islands that give the country its name are very different. Trinidad, the larger island, is densely populated. It is home to steel mills, oil fields, factories, livestock farms, and sugarcane estates, and has become a regional financial center. The mountainous island of Tobago, on the other hand, is far less developed. Located about 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northeast of Trinidad, Tobago's economy depends heavily on tourism. There's a lot to discover about Trinidad and Tobago!
