Trinidad & Tobago
Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) are two emerald jewels of the Caribbean, although a Caribbean Island the geographical and natural history of the islands are more South American than Caribbean as Trinidad separated from mainland South America a mere 11,000 years ago.

These islands have rich and varied habitats, teaming with a myriad and dense variety of exotic world class bird species and other extraordinary fauna and flora. These tropical islands boast 478 species of very accessible birds. For birdwatchers and nature photographers, it really doesn't come better than these islands.

Many other neotropical birding destinations in Centre and South America, boast far more species of birds, but T&T birds are the most accessible, due to the confines of being on two islands.  If the neotropics are new to you, you will find Trinidad and Tobago an ideal stepping stone to the south American Mainland due to the identical fauna and flora found here making T&T unique to other Caribbean islands.

If you wish to see or photograph easy encounters of bright and colouful neotropical Birds then T&T is the place to invest your time and maximize your resources. With Hummingbirds flying inches from your face, to the marvel of Scarlet Ibis against the lush green backdrop of Mangrove Swamps to collard Trogons, Green Honeycreepers, and Chanel-billed Toucans darting near by, you are sure to leave T&T with dilated pupils and weak at the knees with an amazement adventure!
