My wife and I stayed at Asa Wright for 4 nights in Oct. 2016. The weather was great while we were there, really hot, really very very hot and humid but no rain. I am a keen birder and my wife is not but does enjoying seeing birds. I absolutely loved this place and so did my wife. The accommodation...

Pros-What a beautiful place. An excellent place to get away from the city and enjoy nature at its finest. The main house/mansion maybe old (100 yrs) but the place is very well maintained and fully operational. A definite if you're a bird watcher and/or nature lover. You are off the grid as there is no wifi or cell phone connectivity....

We often plan vacations around adding to our life lists of birds, but we also wanted a break from our various volunteer projects. Asa Wright Nature Center was the perfect choice. We saw dozens of beautiful and interesting birds from the veranda, were provided with interesting and tasty local food which included tea at 4:00 Pm and rum punch at...

We are from Trinidad and booked a Sunday Lunch for the whole family. We paid 230 TTD per person and children pay half. I was so disappointed. They offered a regular local lunch with no options. It was one starch, one vegetable option and one meat. I understand it is geared towards tourist but for that price I expect a...

Took my students here on their annual field trip, and despite the rain, we all had a great time! Our tour guide was patient and informative; we didn't get to see many birds due to the weather, but the view from the veranda is beautiful!

The Asa Wright Nature Centre was an amazing place to go for birds. The centre itself and the staff were really friendly and helpful though the food was pretty basic and not really to our taste.The rooms were very comfortable and staff were helpful in moving us as my husband was not able to cope with all the steps to...

As a solo traveller I arranged my stay at Asa Wright for a week through Caligo. Every aspect of this holiday was beyond my expectations. I'm a photographer and the opportunities for great shots never ended. I literally got a shot of a Caracara at the airport. Mukesh was my guide and thanks to him I saw every bird I...

This lodge is fantastic for birders and naturalists. You will not find fancy 5-star accomadations, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. The dining room is open air to the gorgeous surroundings, and we enjoyed sitting with other guests - we made new friends here and met some fascinating people from around the world. We took the independent birders venture...

Our ten days at Asa Wright were extremely enjoyable. A paradise for birders! We hiked difficult trails, and ended up in much better physical condition than when we arrived! The guides are topnotch. We had Mukesh, Rudell, Dave, Charen, and Barry (sp). We feel Barry is a rising star in the guiding world. Not only is he personable and knowledgeable...

Three of us recently stayed here in February 2016. Our rooms were basic but perfectly comfortable if a little old- fashioned. We had plenty of hot water and a sun room in addition to our bedrooms- great for drying our clothes. We are not birders but the range of fascinating birds seen from the balcony and around the grounds is...
