Trinidad, Tobago, and Barbados


Although often grouped together in the minds of outsiders, the Caribbean islands of Trinidad, Tobago and Barbados form two nations: Barbados is politically separate from the other two. The islands are located in the Lesser Antilles group in the north western Atlantic Ocean. Trinidad & Tobago lie just off the coast of Venezuela and to the south of the island of Grenada, while Barbados is situated some 200 miles (320 km) further north. The three islands share a similar climate, history and culture and are often visited together on a Caribbean cruise.
