There is no better introduction to birding in the New World tropics than a trip to the two-island nation of Trinidad & Tobago. The islands contain a diversity of easily-accessible habitats that allow unparalleled access to some of the world’s most stunningly beautiful birds.
Trinidad, only seven miles off the coast of Venezuala, contains an abundance of species found in northeastern South America. Tobago’s avifauna is more Caribbean in its makeup.
In Trinidad, tours are based at the world-famous Asa Wright Nature Centre, a charming lodge located in a 2,000 acre tract of rainforest high in the Arima Valley of the island’s Northern Range. Visitors usually see more than 40 species of birds before breakfast. For the first time visitor, many of those birds are life birds. In Tobago, stay at the remote and intimate Cuffie River Nature Retreat, located in Tobago’s highland rainforest.
