Tobago

The dual islands of Trinidad and Tobago are the southernmost of our Caribbean islands, and although together they make up one nation, the true beauty is in their difference. Whether you are looking for a boutique bolthole, a holistic retreat or a luxury beachfront resort with all the facilities, these contrasting twins have something to suit everyone.

Sun-soaked Tobago is Trinidad’s wistful, sleepy sister, an island of intoxicatingly laid back resorts and majestic beauty. There are swaying coconut palms, golden beaches and sapphire waters, but there is also the jungle capped Main Ridge with mile upon mile of lush rainforest, charming ramshackle villages, secluded waterfalls and plenty of hidden coves. As you would expect on such a small island, the restaurant scene is limited, and the hotels are your best bet, with Café Coco, located a short walk from or taxi ride away from Coco Reef Resort, being particularly recommended.

Asa Wright Nature Centre

This amazing nature centre was established in 1967 by a group of naturalists and bird watchers to protect the region’s diverse tropical wildlife. The rainforest is home to a vast number of species, including 460 birds and over 600 butterflies, and many of our clients come to Trinidad simply to visit this impressive centre.

Port of Spain

We love the buzz of Trinidad’s capital, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Caribbean. Once just a small seaside port, Port of Spain now houses many historic landmarks, great shopping opportunities and a wonderful range of restaurants.

Turtle watching

Turtle watching on the north coast of Trinidad is a spectacular experience and well worth getting out of bed early for. Seeing a turtle hatch is an amazing sight but it only happens seasonally, so do let us know if this is something that you’re interested in.

Birdwatching on Little Tobago

Just off the north east coast, the tiny island of Little Tobago is an important breeding site for numerous species of tropical seabirds. Take a glass bottom boat over to the island and you’ll also see some incredible coral formations, including one of the largest brain corals in the world. 

Waterfalls and chocolate

According to local legend, swimming in the Argyle Waterfall makes you look 10 years younger – although we’re not sure it’s worked on any of the Caribtours team! If after a refreshing swim you get a bit peckish, visit Tobago’s first chocolate factory, set up in 2005. Owner, Duane, has been instrumental in rejuvenating the cocoa industry on the island. For something a bit special, why not let us organise a private rum and chocolate tour.

Half Moon

Jamaica

You’ll be following in some very famous royal footsteps when you check in at this iconic hotel - the Queen, Prince Charles and, most recently, Prince Harry have all enjoyed Half Moon’s legendary Jamaican hospitality.

With 400 acres to explore, the best way to get around Half Moon is by bike - the pedal-back brakes take a bit of getting used to but they’re great fun once you’ve got the hang of it.

At over 60 years old, Half Moon might be getting on a bit, but she still likes to look her best - the Sugar Mill Restaurant and lobby area were refurbished last year and the Oleander section of the resort is now receiving a full makeover.
