Very informative and relaxed, with pleasant walks and surprising sights and sounds. If you like bird watching and understanding the fauna - go to Asa Wright. You might even find a cool natural pool in the forest to jump in to...

Took Debbie here for her birthday, most memorable! Interesting tour but the most amazing part was having a meal surrounded by humming birds. With it being out pof season we were the only ones eating but the service was just as good. Views down the valley with nothing but trees and deep valleys. Views which locals would have seen 4000...

Lots of good bird watching and trail hikes. Apply mosquito repellent liberally. Humming birds galore. Bring a good camera with a fast lens.

We try to visit Asa Wright at least once a year. It is a long drive in the hills by local standards, but the isolation helps for the quiet atmosphere for wildlife spotting.

This place is totally different from other bird sanctuary such as Caroni, here you'll see varieties of birds and involves walking for long hours.

We came for a day trip to watch the hummingbirds and do the short guided walk to see the 2 species of manakin and the bearded bellbird. We came away with 2 hours of video and 4gb of photos - need I say more? You must visit the Asa Wright Nature Centre whilst you are on Trinidad

Beautiful, vibrant, and unique. Our hosts were wonderful and the trip was very memorable. Remember to keep an eye on the ground for venomous snakes in addition to eyes toward the sky for all of the birds.
