We are heading for Trinidad & Tobago in November this year. A new destination for us, and we're very excited about it. It's been long on our radar, and now finally in sight. It's 10 days and 9 nights, with 6 of those nights on Trinidad, 2 on Tobago (but we have long days arrival and departure) and one at the Port of Spain airport which allows us to catch morning flights to enable home city connections once back in the US.


D1: Fly to Trinidad for 6 nights at Asa Wright Nature Centre.
D2: birding the grounds. One night, TBD, we’ll go on a nightbirds outing off-site, and most nights we’ll spotlight around our lodge.
D3: Walk to the Oilbird cave then late afternoon/sunset travel to Caroni Swamp. In addition to the mangrove, light forest and marsh birds we’ll take a boat ride to enjoy sunset (and those rum punches!) as perhaps hundreds of Scarlet Ibis fly in to their night roost.
D4: Aripo Savannah & Arena Forest – we’ll spend much of the day out today, including in the savannah habitat once widespread in Trinidad but now severely depleted
D5: We journey to the higher elevation forest, where we drive and walk back roads and wide forest tracks. An easy day with lunch out, but back in plenty of time for more verandah time.
D6: Another day on the grounds, but with an optional half day outing to a farm for viewing and photographing (from blinds) hummingbirds or a very early start morning outing specifically for Trinidad Piping Guan.
D7: we take a short flight across to Tobago this morning, and transfer to Cuffie River Retreat, arriving before lunch. The afternoon is devoted to exploring the grounds .
D8: Head to Gilpin Trace Reserve, continually protected forest since 1776. We spend a couple of hours birding here, looking especially for White-tailed Sabrewing and Blue-backed Manakin. We then continue on to the coast and head across by glass-bottomed boat to Little Tobago. Red-billed Tropicbirds, Red-footed and Brown Boobies nest here in November, and are `our target birds, and there are plenty of others as well. After time on the island we return to Cuffie.
D9: Most of the day is spent around Cuffie until late afternoon when we head to the airport to fly back To Port of Spain. We overnight here, convenient to the airport for our morning flights tomorrow which enable connections to our home cities.
D10: Fly back to our home cities.
