Located south of Grenada and close to northeastern Venezuela, TRINIDAD and TOBAGO is administratively divided up into ten Regions or Regional Corporations, three City Corporations, and five Boroughs. Trinidad and Tobago's ten regions are Couva-Tabaquite-Talparo (Couva), Diego Martin (Petit Valley), Mayaro-Rio Claro, Penal-Debe (Penal), Princes Town, San Juan-Laventille (Laventille), Sangre Grande, Siparia, Tobago, and Tunapuna-Piarco (Tunapuna). Except for Tobago Region, regions are named after at least one town or city. The national capital — Port of Spain — and San Fernando are city corporations, and the three boroughs are Arima, Chaguanas, and Point Fortin. Until the 1990s, the country's former first-level administrative divisions were counties with multiple wards in each one. More information about this country can be found in my Trinidad and Tobago post (↗)!
