Itinerary Options

Our 10-Day, 2-Island Classic Tour features time on both Trinidad and Tobago, with six nights at the Asa Wright Nature Centre (AWNC) and three nights at one of two lodges on Tobago. Field trips vary from a few hours to a full day and include personal time at the lodges to bird the trails or just relax. Enjoy rum punch on the AWNC’s famed verandah, and swimming in the pools at Cuffie River Nature Retreat or in the ocean at Blue Waters Inn on Tobago. If you wish, come a night or two early to the AWNC, or stay on in Tobago for time at leisure.

Our Best of Trinidad Tour visits Trinidad only, using two lodges that are a three-hour drive apart. This drive is one of the most beautiful in the tropics, along what is rightfully called the “Oregon Coast” of the tropics. Both locations are prime for birding and wildlife. This week-long tour includes five nights at the AWNC and two nights in Grande Riviere, stronghold of the endangered endemic Trinidad Piping-guan. Additionally, from late-March through July, you also have the chance to see nesting Leatherback Turtles right on the beach at Grande Riviere.

Our 7-Day, 2-Island Sampler is designed for those with limited time, and is a shorter version of our 10-Day, 2-Island Classic Tour. Not quite as complete, but easy on the budget, enjoy, featuring four nights at the AWNC and two nights at Cuffie River Nature Retreat on Tobago.

Our Holiday Tours are a bit more relaxed in pace, planned to savor special times at Christmas and New Year's.
