We were on the north coast beaches and drove back to Port of Spain through the mountain road and we made a stop at the center. It is a few minutes drive from their gate to the actula buildings through a beautiful forested area. There were no signs as to where we could park or where to go. We found... More

The place was amazing! Lots of lush plants ans trees. We were also allowed to play with a snake that was just caught and about to be returned to the forest. The hike was lovely with frequent stops and lots of descriptions if what we were seeing. Ended the day with a cool soak in the natural pool. Hope to... More

If you are a person that loves outdoors and nature this is the place to visit. Lovely birds, to get the most out of this trip I strongly suggest a visit from early morning. The birds in my opinion tend to be easier to see at this time.They do tours where a guide accompanies you on the a trail into... More

A simply wonderful 4 days. Clean comfortable rooms. Quiet peaceful nature observation from the elegant old estate house veranda. Great trails to wander about on our own or with very experienced guides. So fun to watch and listen to the Bell Birds and also the manakins jumping and snapping in their lek. Meals in the dining room were buffet style... More

This nature centre offers a wonderful experience for all ages and inclinations. Quiet and scenic, the humming birds are awesome. The guide was very hospitable and knowledgeable. The entry price is low. This is a must do in Trinidad. The entry road is windy and a bit unsettling with two cars at once but experienced drivers will have no problem.... More

An amazing place to spend the day. The veranda of the elegant old estate house, with its views over a valley of luxuriant tropical vegetation, is the perfect spot from which to observe all sorts of wonderfully colourful birds & especially the humming birds sipping daintily from the feeders alongside.

A popular for both local and foreign visitors. Amazing bird watching from the comfort of a large veranda while sipping tasty home made coffee. Lunch is good but a bit pricey. I recommend leaving after lunch and going higher up into the mountains where many don't go as the views alone are worth it and there are many interesting, friendly... More

BMOBILE kiosk in the Piarco Airport is located in a secure area which would not permit anyone to revisit the store if there are problems. The store, as I was told, sells malfunctioning devices knowing it is near impossible to visit the location. Additionally, they also have a "no return, no refund" policy despite saying otherwise on the purchase receipt.... More

Beautiful mountain ride to the rain forest. The best is watching the humming birds from the veranda. Friendly guides take you to look for the birds and identify interesting plants. They seem to be more trained tourist leaders than nature guides
