    Bird Sanctuary

    by kyoub Written Jun 29, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Little Tobago is a 20 minute boat ride from Speyside. You will have a wet landing and then someone will show you around.
    There are a network of marked trails. You can see sooty terns, noddies, and laughing gulls up close and tropicbirds if you are there at the right season. Around the old house we have seen blue-grey tanagers, blue-crowned mot-mots, and oropendola.
    On the way back, the boat will stop for you to snorkel.

    Off the Grafton Road is a dirt driveway leading to the Grafton Estate.
    There is a bird sanctuary there where they feed the birds early morning and in th evening. There are also bottles of sugar water hanging about.
    Get there near feeding time and you will see cocricos,motmots, and pther birds showing up to eat. There are always hummingbirds and bananaquits.

    Scarborough

    by Blondiina Written Oct 8, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The small and sweaty capital city of Tobago. Nothing much for tourists except a few high-speed internet access places and a couple of nice restaurants, one especially worth visiting is Ciao Cafe. But go there to see some city action in Tobago, there's not plenty of it around otherwise. There is also a market, banks, a mall (by no means what you'd expect from a mall back home) and a harbour.

    Sunday School

    by Blondiina Updated Nov 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sunday School (absolutely nothing to do with church or religion) is a huge beach party held every Sunday evening in Buccoo village. There are steel pan orchestras playing, loud music from the bars, dancing, stalls selling food and souvenirs and lots of people. It is kind of a tourist trap and a pick-up joint, but maybe we got the tourist trap feeling, because we were there too early. We went there before 10 pm and there were mainly tourists around, only a few locals. It wasn't what we expected so we got bored and left at 11 pm. Stupid us! If you go there, and you should visit no matter how old you are, go late, preferably after 11 pm so you can see the real thing.

    Jungle!

    by Blondiina Written Sep 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Go on a jungle walk with an experienced guide and you'll see lots of interesting things. Birds, plants, lizards, butterflies. A good guide will spot things you would easily miss on your own.

    Bring along water to drink and insect repellent. You may want to dress in long pants and a long sleeved shirt, but it is not absolutely necessary. You can rent rubber boots at the entrance, at least if you're going on Gilpin trail.

    And remember, there are no venomous snakes on Tobago!

    Argyle Waterfalls

    by Blondiina Updated Nov 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A short walk leads you to this beautiful waterfall with three main cascades. If it hasn’t rained, water will be clear and nice, but even if is has rained and the water seems less inviting, it is perfectly safe for swimming. It is only mud from up stream. If you want to see the second or third cascade, you have to climb up a steep path. There is an entrance fee and you may have to hire a guide, but don't hire one of the unofficial ones found usually at the first entrance. The licensed guides can be found at the car park from where you have to walk to the falls.

    Fort James

    by Blondiina Updated Oct 8, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tobago has many forts to visit, but this one, Fort James, was built 1811 and is part of the British legacy of Tobago. This is the oldest stockade on the island. There is beautiful view of Turtle Beach from the fort. There are a few souvenir and aloe vera sellers around, which is quite annoying, but the singer who performs there to visitors is pretty good.

    Store Bay

    by Blondiina Written Sep 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A small lifeguard serviced beach with a number of facilities. Popular with both locals and tourist alike. Here you can find everything from changing rooms to local food and souvenir stalls. But be prepared to meet lots of touts wanting to sell you a boat tour. They are generally nice, but after the third or fourth one, you’re starting to get annoyed. That is if you don’t want to go on a boat tour.

    Take a massaging shower in Argyle Falls

    by Jill2002 Written May 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Esther, our guide, took us to the Falls, showing us lots of interesting stuff on the way. The Mot Mot birds, huge bamboo, fruit bads clinging to the trees and lots of other flora & fauna. The walk to the falls takes about 20 minutes.
    If you are able, climb to the third pool and take a massaging shower from the waterfall or just swim in the beautiful clear water.

    Nylon Pool

    by Jill2002 Written May 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Nylon Pool is a plateau of land/coral out to sea. At only three feet deep it is weird to be standing up in the middle of the sea. It was apparently names Nylon Pool as Princess Margaret thought it was as clear as her nylon stockings.

    These guys were lying on the sea bed and when they stood up the water came just above their knees - WEIRD.

    Frankie's Rum Punch Beach Party

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take a trip on a glass bottom boat to see the coral & fish at Buccoo Reef then onto the Nylon Pool. Later the boat takes you to No Mans Land for a beach barbecue party. Great fun. Loud Calypso Music. Rum Punch Beer.

    It was a fun party in idealic surroundings.

    Caroni Swamp

    A must do for nature and birding enthusiasts is a boat ride in the Caroni Swamp. Here at dusk, hundred of Scarlet Ibis and other birds come to roost for the night. Come at the right time of year and the spectacle is really breathtaking.

    LaBrea Pitch Lake

    by Martin_S. Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the southwest of Trinidad lies the LaBrea Pitch Lake. You get a guide who will explain all the aspects of the lake to you and let you "walk in tar" without getting your feet blacked. The pic shows Zohara and Tal learning about the tar and its physical aspects from the local guide.

    The Asa Wright Nature Center...

    The Asa Wright Nature Center is a must.
    Situated in the Northen range in Trinidad, it is a mecca for nature lovers, bird watchers and people who are simply seeking someplace different. Located in lush tropical rain forest, one can truly be in touch with nature here. Picture is of a male Green Honeycreeper at one of the feeders.

    Visit Little Tobago Island. ...

    by roamer61 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visit Little Tobago Island. The larger island in the accpanying photo is Little Tobago.
    This is one of the great seabird colonies in the Americas. On the island, one may see both Red Footed and Brown Boobies, and the main attraction, Red Billed Tropic Birds.
    Both in flight and, during certain times of the year, nest. Other birds are found here, but these 3 are the real draw.
