The caroni bird sanctuary is one of the most attractive nature reserves in central Trinidad. Having the experience of sailing downstream. And seeing the many beautiful birds take the nesting. A must see if you ever visit Trinidad.

this tour was great. we saw a variety of wildlife and mangrove. the tour guide however did not explain what we were seeing and as a result some of the group did not know what they were supposed to be looking for.

A must see for everyone.the highlight was the natural nesting grounds for the Scalet Ibis.A sea of red at one point in time.Really a fantastic sight. The trip is about two hours so make sure and carry water,sunblock and a camera.the boat ride is very calm.

He also allowed us a bit of fishing and made a nice big bowl of cucumber and apple chow for us! And the highlight of the evening was watching... More

Great boat ride on the swamp with very knowledgeable guides and witnessing the Scarlet Ibis come in to roost is magical.

I visited the swamp early last year with the excellent tour guide Ravi Kalpoo. You can view my YouTube video on the Kvtv channel http://youtu.be/q1qsiyJzkL8. I . I recommend this tour for couples especially those that want a peaceful outing. The best time to visit is in the evening when the Scarlet Ibis return to their nest. It's a beautiful... More

If you wish to have a serene evening into dusk, why not sail down a lazy tributary and see a spectacular sight of our national bird, the Scarlet Ibis coming in to roost. These birds pack a scarlet punch and cover the trees in the evening time, after having flown over to Venezuela during the day. The backdrop of the... More
