The drive up to Asa Wright Nature Center is an experience in itself, but it is well worth the effort. Nestled way up in the central range, the Center provides an experience and a half for bird enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. We arrived for the 10:30 am forest walk. Our guide, sorry I can't remember his name, was great.... More

Watching the birds feast on the fruit that was provided was great. the birds were so beautiful, watching them in their natural atmosphere was even more amazing. You learn a lot about certain trees and wildlife during you visit here. Lots of survival tips as well!

This is a site where exotic bird sightings are guaranteed. Lunch is available as well as tours into the forest along trails. There are bird feeders directly on front of the verandah and an array of truly beautiful birds regularly feed there- purple and green honeycreepers, different species of humming birds, tanagers and banana quits, are just a few. Agouti... More

I can't believe I did not write a review for this already - this is my FAVOURITE place in Trinidad - if there was no entry fee with the same boring tour, I would go there every time I had some free time. The drive up there is pretty dangerous and easy to get lost especially as there is often... More

We arrived over an hour late for the tour due to the weather, and we expected that we would not get the guide, because we were late!! When we got to the desk, paid etc. the receptionist informed us we had missed the tour and probably would not get a guide. It was a group of seven so we decided... More

Good for a day out. Interesting things to see. A very nice man made pool but the water is ice cold. A great spot for bird watchers. It is a far drive from the city though for tourists. Nice view of the valley.

Just my second visit to the Asa Wright Nature Center and will certainly not be my last. Being a budding wildlife photographer this location provides the ideal location for shooting over a hundred species of birds and other wildlife. The veranda provides an excellent vantage point for looking out over the valley below. The feeders in the veranda attract a... More

Asa Wright Nature Centre is one of the best spots in the world for both serious and casual birdwatchers. We have birded fairly extensively all over the Caribbean, and in Costa Rica and Mexico, and still managed to bag 41 life birds here in four days. We also saw a lot of beautiful birds that we have seen before. A... More

Asa Wright Nature Centre has what you need for a great retreat alone or with company. I took my kids here. The staff was so accommodating and informative. They learnt so much and best of all they came away with a greater appreciation of the need for preservation and love for nature. The quiet and secured facilities are safe enough... More

We took some friends of ours who had lived in Trinidad many years ago and wanted to show their daughter what Trinidad had to offer other than sea and the beach. We all had a great time. Even though I regularly go on walks and hikes through out the island I enjoyed seeing nature so grand and seeing animals and... More
