    The Jacamar Wildlife Reserve has a tall canopy of epiphytes and bromeliads, trees, an wildflowers. This is an excellent place to find Jacamars perched on braches and overhead wires. Just don't forget to take along some insect repellent.

    There are no fancy restaurants in Charlotteville. It is just good local food prepared by local women. The food is very good and very inexpensive at Sharon and Phebe's. Chickens run around the grounds until time to be cooked and my husband says it is the best chicken that he has even eaten.
    The restaurant is just as you enter the main road by the bay.

    If you happen to be in Charlotteville when the Wind Surf cruise ship comes into port you will see a crowd gathered at the pier. The locals will be playing music on their steel drums until around 4am.

    The best way to get around Tobago is to rent a 4-wheel drive jeep. You can get these across the road from the airport in Crown Point, after you land.
    It is much better to drive around the island yourself because that is the only way to get some places.
    There is a van that goes from the airport to Charlotteville at certain times of the day.

    Luggage and bags: Travel light.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wear lightweight cotton clothing, and comfortable shoes. Take along shorts, t-shirts, and swimsuit. People dress very casual . Long pants and long sleeved shirts help to keep some of the biting insects away when you are birding.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Take what you will need because you won't find much in the way of supplies here.

    Photo Equipment: No photo supplies can be found in Charletteville. Don't forget camera, film, memory sticks, and batteries.

    Charlotteville makes you happy

    Flagstaff Hill is an old lighthouse sight. It has been develpoed as a lookout sight with great views of St.Giles Islands and Man-o-War Bay,
    If you are lucky will also see some parrotts coming or going while you are there.
    The hill is found by a road turning off the Speyside to Chartlotteville road.

    This isolated beach is located on the south side of Man-o-War Cottages.
    The best way to get there is by boat.

    There is good snorkeling at Pirate's Bay. It is a 10 minute walk down a path on the north side of Charlotteville. There are many steps leading down to the bay. Ask any local and they can tell you how to get there.
    The bay got its name from the buccaneers who had a base there, centuries ago. Today it is a feeding ground for Frigatebirds, a sort of pirate themselves.

    Tobago is one of the better places in the Caribbean for the advanced diver.
    Beginners can be certified here also.
    There are several dive operators and a very good one is called Man Friday, it is located in Charlottville.
