Trinidad and Tobago: Birds and Turtles! (CANCELLED)
Carlos Sanchez and local guides (arranged through Caligo Ventures/Naturalist Journeys LLC) lead this eleven-day, ten-night trip to the beautiful islands of Trinidad and Tobago, beginning and ending in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Spend six nights at the world-renowned Asa Wright Nature Centre, where you can see 40 species of birds before breakfast from the famous veranda while you sip coffee locally grown on the estate. See Oilbirds at the exclusive but accessible Dunston Cave, watch manakins on their leks and observe calling Trinidad Bearded Bellbirds perched in the canopy. Venture from the Centre to see the magic of thousands of Scarlet Ibis soaring overhead at sunset to roosts at Caroni Marsh and explore the legendary Nariva Swamp and Bush Bush Forest Sanctuary for grassland and wetland species. Overnight at Mt. Plaisir Estate Hotel in Grand Riviere for Trindad Piping-Guan and intimate views of nesting Leatherback Turtles before venturing on to Tobago to highlight new species including Rufous-vented Chachalaca, White-tailed Sabrewing and nesting seabird colonies accessed by glass-bottom boat. Spend three nights at the beautiful Blue Waters Inn.
