ABOUT TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO

TRINIDAD

Trinidad is like the town of Bethlehem, a tiny but significant place in the heart of God. It is part of the twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. It was in the year 1498 that the notable pioneer, Christopher Columbus, sailed the Caribbean Seas on his third epic, exploratory journey around the then known world when he stumbled upon this twin island. The Majesty of the triple mountains now called the Trinity Hills, for which the island of Trinidad is celebrated, rose magnificently before him. The inspiring image sparked such a heavenly awe in the mind and spirit of this renowned explorer that the Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost immediately came to mind. He called this island 'La Trinidad' which is 'The Trinity' in Spanish. Later the 'La' was dropped and the name 'Trinidad' was adopted.

Trinidad & Tobago, the home of the Steelpan, is located just seven miles off the coast of Venezuela. These two islands are one country with a distinct culture, yet each has its own personality. The population is on average 1.4 Million people.


Trinidad is busy and industry-focused, while Tobago is serene, tranquil and relaxing . The islands are renowned for their warm climate, friendly and hospitable people, magnificent beaches, natural wonders and cultural festivals.
