Couva lies in the central part of Trinidad between Port of Spain and San Fernando. Central Trinidad’s population is mostly descended from Indian indentured labourers who came in the1840s. This heritage is visible by the sites in this area, which provide insight into the Indo-Trinidadian history culture. Central Trinidad is a diverse zone with an astonishing variety of landscapes. Even in the more urbanised regions you can still find natural oases like flatlands, reserves, reservoirs, swamps and rain forests with countless and varied species of flora and fauna.
The Ato Boldon Stadium, located in Couva, Trinidad and Tobago, is named after eight-time Olympic and World Championship medal winner and 1997 200m World Champion, Ato Boldon. The stadium was constructed for the 2001 FIFA U-17 World Cup which was hosted by Trinidad and Tobago. The stadium is used by the local football team and can hold up to 10,000 people.
