Trinidad and Tobago climate overview

The twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago lie at the southern tip of the eastern Caribbean just off the Venezuelan coast. Unusually for the Caribbean, the majority of the population of Trinidad is not of African origin because after the abolition of slavery the British introduced migrant workers from India.

Trinidad's capital, Port Of Spain, is widely regarded as the carnival Mecca of the Caribbean, when during the February celebrations, outrageously colourful costumes, rhythmic steel bands and calypso dancing add to an electrifying street party attended by tens of thousands. The Northern Mountain range of Trinidad forms an impressive backdrop to the capital city, while the rest of the island is made up of rolling hillsides and plains. Vegetation is a mixture of crop plantations, indigenous lush forest and mangrove swamp.

The interior of Tobago is mountainous with thick rainforest, nevertheless this jungle wilderness is wholly accessible in the Tobago Forest Reserve, which has a road running through its heart. The island's coast is blessed with numerous beautiful white sand beaches with coconut palms and reef protected waters.

Trinidad and Tobago's tropical climate has a rainy summer season, the wettest months being from June to November with a distinctive drop in rainfall in late September or early October. The drier and sunnier winter season runs from February to April, but even during this time, it will rain most afternoons over the higher ground. Temperatures remain warm all year round with high heat and humidity in most months.

Although officially lying just south of the 'hurricane belt', tropical storms and hurricanes do occasionally hit the islands.
