There is no better introduction to birding in the New World tropics than a trip to the two-island nation of Trinidad & Tobago. The islands contain a diversity of easily-accessible birdwatching habitats that allow unparalleled access to some of the worlds most stunningly beautiful birds.
Trinidad, only seven miles off the coast of Venezuala, contains an abundance of species found in northeastern South America. Tobago’s avifauna is more Caribbean in it’s makeup.
In Trinidad we’ll visit the world-famous Asa Wright Nature Centre, a charming lodge located in a 2,000 acre tract of rainforest high in the Arima Valley of the island’s Northern Range. Visitors usually see more than 40 species of birds before breakfast.
In Tobago, we’ll stay at the remote and intimate Cuffie River Nature Retreat, located in Tobago’s highland rainforest. From here we will also visit Blue Waters Inn, on the island’s northern coast, to enjoy a boat trip to Little Tobago Island on a glass-bottomed boat!
Incredible birds, awesome accommodations and relaxing birding will surely combine to make this a trip of a lifetime!
