Take in the sights and history of Tobago in one hassle-free tour. A private guide leads you to Fort George for panoramic views, the Royal Botanic Gardens for a brief stroll, to the small town of Plymouth for the “mysterious tombstone” and 17th-century Fort James ruins, and the popular Store Bay to try Tobago's famous crab and dumplings. Plus, included hotel pickup and drop-off make this tour extra convenient.

I only wish we could have been in Buccoo for the races, during Easter. The stadium is very nice, and I'll bet the crowds are enthusiastic. I DID see someone swimming with their goat, and asked about it. He said he was a racing goat, and it was good excercise for them.

This is a very unusual site to visit: not everywhere in the world it is possible to find a full stadium dedicated to goat racing! Grounds are very well maintained and used during the year for other events. Of course the goat racing are the most wanted and attract a lot of visitors, together with all the rest what Buccoo Bay Village has to offer! From street food to fine Italian dining, wine shop, massage therapist, lunch on decks, breakfast shops, direct boat tours to the reef, tourist center, archeological itineraries at La Tartaruga restaurant and of course lot of courtesy from the villagers and great sounds from the multidecorated panyard!

The goat racing in. Buccoo is a very unique experience. It has a very long tradition which has been passed from generation to generation. With modern times an great structure ‘Integrated Buccoo Beach Facilities” host the scheduled events and provides all the services and amenities to the visiting public. The grounds are very well kept, ,in particular the grass of the running field with its starting gates for the goats and their respective jokey barefoot, young and fast to be able to keep the contact with their goat, through a rope, without slowing the goat down. The goat and the jokey have to cross the finish line together. Last Wednesday a special race was staged in occasion of a UK film crew visiting Tobago for the day!

Its a novel local experience with all the required comforts. Great 'street food', Comfortable seating, wonderful local entertainment. There are about 13 goat races that start at about 1pm. Get there with your picnic basket and drinks or purchase at the venue.
