Any IBV booking can add one or two nights at Grande Riviere. It is remote (about 3 hours from AWNC), very scenic – on the beach, and quiet, a village of just 50 people. Lush forests cover the mountain backdrop that comes right down to the sea, providing refuge for rare Pawi, the local name for Trinidad Piping-Guan. April – August brings the bonus of seeing nesting Leatherback Turtles as well. This add-on does bring some cost due to the special nature of the transfer, local guiding, and remote, boutique hotel. This area is true Caribbean with a laid-back vibe – not for everyone but we think very special!
