The place was easy to find, well indicated. The team we met there, was very friendly, toilets accessible and clean. We had the pleasure that day my mum and i to see snakes, two lovely owls, little crabs, a caiman showing his head, fishes, the beauty of the nature and especially the arrival of the red ibis, covering the three...

I highly recommend to see this tour in Trinidad second to Leather back turtle nesting in Matura Beach. Come here in the afternoon as these birds flock the trees and swamps as they feed and nest for the day. These birds are protected species and their sanctuary is deep in the swamps and you have to ride a boat to... More

This year decided to do Local Attractions for my 1st wave vacation. Booked with Nanan's Tours, and they were professional, timely and really engaging. The tour guide was detailed, and stopped at major points of interests for taking pictures and made time for us to behold the beauty of the Mangrove, Scarlet Ibis and other birds. The tour lasted about... More

We went with the boats going out 16:00 to watch the red Ibis return to the swamp. It is truly magical to see them arrive in the sunset. During the trip we were also able to see parrots, a boa, an eagle, crabs, fishes and lots of mangrove.

The swamp tour was educational and informative .We used the company that operates inside the sanctuary itself. I think the name of the company is Madoos and they seem to be the official tour company of the Caroin Bird Sanctuary. There are other companies operating in the swamp but this one is located inside the gates of the facility. You... More

We went with Nanan Tours and the guide was wonderful! He was very knowledgable about all of the wild life and vegetation, highly recommend! Watching the birds come back at sunset was magical. bring a sweater as the weather cools after the sun sets

Tucked away from the frantic pace of Port of Spain, Caroni Swamp is absolutely worth a visit. Once on the water, it feels as though you've entered another world. Whether by tour biat or kayak, it's peaceful and tranquil. On hot days, bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and insect repellant. Preferred the kayak option just to go at a nice... More

Took 4pm boat tour offered by Nanna Tours (right at the entrance to the sanctuary), for TT$60 per person, which I thought was extremely good value for money considering the length of tour and enjoyment factor. Definitely pack the bug spray and have your camera (with at least a 55-250mm range zoom lens) and/or binoculars ready. The mangrove is teeming... More
