Nature + Ecotourism

Caroni Bird Sanctuary

A nature-lover's paradise, this 12,000-acre, ecologically diverse wetland lies just south of Port of Spain and shelters more than 100 species of birds, including the brilliant Scarlet Ibis, Trinidad's national bird. Guided boat tours are available.

Turtle Watching

Each year, majesty and mystery emerge from the deep. The Leather Back Turtle makes its nesting journey to the north and north-eastern coasts of Trinidad from March to August. This labor of love lasts from forty to sixty minutes after which the turtle returns to the sea. Tagged turtles from Trinidad and Tobago have been found as far away as Madagascar. We'll take you to witness this spectacle. **Best sightings - March thru August.**
