This is what the doctor ordered! I travel frequently and often shy away from the familiar. Through random searching I stumbled upon this place, an eco lodge and it is just beautiful. The cottages were well appointed and cozy, especially the kitchen area. You almost don't want to leave the bedroom on account of absolute comfort...but then you do, and...

My wife and I were lucky enough to spend four nights at Hacienda Jacana at the end of a busy two weeks of touring and birding. The welcome and hospitality were superb. The lodges are wonderfully appointed and Helen and Jesse went out of their way to make us feel at home - as well as providing wonderful dinners each...

This was our first point of call on a Christmas trip to Trinidad. We were the only guests so enjoyed the run of the place. Helen made us so welcome and made sure that our evening meal reflected our tastes. We spent one day just walking round the land and the bungalows and picked up 64 bird species as well...

Amid the chaos that is Trinidad, lies and oasis called Hacienda Jacana. I had the privilege of spending a week in late November at this beautiful resort. The property lies in the central area of the island, near Talparo, very close to the airport and with easy access to many tourist destinations in the north and centre east and west....

We didnt know much about Hacienda Jacana before we arrived in Trinidad and we soon learned that we were going to enjoy our stay here more than anywhere else on the island. Accommdation takes the form of several elevated lodges - ours was wonderfully equipped with a fantastic balcony overlooking the small lake in the grounds. Bird life was prolific...

I am a business lawyer from Washington D.C. working on international projects in Suriname and Trinidad. On my recent trip, I was unexpectedly held over in Trinidad and wanted to get out of Port of Spain for a quiet weekend. A colleague recommended Hacienda and I thought I'd give it a try, not expecting anything out of the ordinary. Wrong!...

We are from Trinidad and the view is breath taking. The green with splashes of colour all around, fantastic landscaping. We enjoyed the ambiance, the cabin facing at the pond and listening to the birds sing and watching the humming birds, we even saw a woodpecker. The Cabin is very comfortable with full kitchen equipment, wifi, direct tv and a...

Paul Pugh, a long time friend, and I have been saying for years we need to sort out our lives so that we could have some time birding together - any time, any place. He and I used to be birding 'rivals' but our lives have taken over, and he, to a large extent, had left birds behind. Anyway, we...
