We took a guided boat tour through the swamp and saw herons, egrets, flamingos, shorebirds and a large Cook's Tree Boa. The grand finale at dusk was watching the flocks of Scarlet Ibis flying in to roost. Spectacular!

Worth the trip just to see the scarlet ibis come in to roost. Basic facilities but the colour of the ibis is stunning.

One goes to the Caroni Lagoon to see the Scarlett Ibises plus other varieties of birds and wild life. Best to go just before sunset as the Ibises are returning to roost for the night. Your guide should have cold drinks, but be sure beverages...More

Starting off rather slow with some 4-eyed fish, tree boa and a couple of birds this 2 hour boat trip through the Caroni swamps turned out to be an amazing show of hundreds of Red Ibis flocking in from all directions at dusk.

If you want to see the Scarlet Ibis come in to roost, then this is the place to go! The boatman was very knowledgeable pointing out snakes, bats, crabs, osprey and an amazing amount of other birds! Take a bottle of wine to drink while...More
