Asa Wright Nature Centre
Visit the oldest - and one of the largest - nature preserve in the Caribbean.
Some 108 mammals, 400 birds including 10 species of hummingbirds, 55 reptiles and 617 butterflies consider this area home. Formerly a cocoa and coffee plantation, the Asa Wright Nature Centre is about 50 miles long and 37 miles wide. Most of the 197 acres are covered by tropical rainforest.
Enjoy outstanding nature trails, bird watching, high tea on the veranda and award winning meals with naturalists and bird watchers from all around the world when you visit the Asa Wright Nature Center.
For a more relaxed atmosphere, visit Tobago – a much smaller island northwest of Trinidad.
Tobago experiences much less tourism, which allows it to maintain a more tranquil style. If you're in the mood for a quiet day of bird watching or snorkeling, this may be the place for you.
The waters range from clear to turquoise and range in the upper 70s (F), making scuba diving and snorkeling some of the main attractions for this area. Dive in for a memorable look at the area's natural beauty. Or admire the beauty in the skies above. Tobago, and even the smaller islands of Little Tobago, Goat and St. Giles, are ideal places for ecotourists to come and view the area’s wide variety of tropical birds.
