Poto was taken in the morning from the harbor looking at the downtown area.

Port of Spain, population 49,000 (2000), is the capital of Trinidad and Tobago and the country's third largest municipality by population, after Chaguanas and San Fernando. It is located on the Gulf of Paria, on the north-west coast of the island of Trinidad. The city serves primarily as a retail and administrative centre. It also serves as a financial services centre and is home to two of the largest banks in the English-speaking Caribbean. It is one of the major shipping hubs of the Caribbean, with exports of agricultural products and asphalt. Bauxite from the Guianas and iron ore from Venezuela are trans-shipped via facilities at Chaguaramas, about five miles west of the city. The tallest building in Port of Spain (and in the entire country) is the Nicholas Tower.
Port of Spain is located in the northwest of the island of Trinidad, between the Gulf of Paria, the hills of the Northern Range and the Caroni Swamp. Some of the city lies on reclaimed land, while other parts climb into the hills above the city. The Port of Port of Spain is the major port of containerised shipping.
