Tobago is 23 miles (37 km) northeast of Trinidad. The population here is much less ethnically diverse than that of Trinidad. Tourism is much more a part of the island's economy, and you can find excellent resorts and facilities—along with pretty white-sand beaches. Trinidad is a popular location among yacht owners. Most anchor in the Chaguaramas area on the far northwest side of the island. Taxi cabs are simply normal passenger cars with no special markings. However, their license plates start with the letter "H". They are found at Taxi stands which may be at a street corner or at the side of the road. Taxi stands in the cities and boroughs are usually marked, but outside of the city they are not.

Although the island is not huge, getting somewhere can take longer than you might think.
