Asa Wright Nature Center

Light Activity /Walking Meal

Duration: 6 hours

Tour Code: PST-004

Visit the spectacular Asa Wright Nature Center, a protected paradise of nearly 1,500 mountainous acres that supports an incredible diversity of wildlife, especially tropical birds.

Depart from the pier and begin a scenic drive east into the heart of Trinidad. Along the way you'll pass through rainforests, mountain passes, and cocoa and coffee plantations. Nature rules here, and Trinidad has ensured that it will remain protected, especially the pristine Arima and Aripo valleys, where you'll find the Asa Wright Nature Center.

Established in 1967 as one of the Caribbean's first nature centers, it comprises nearly 1,500 acres of mainly forested land in Trinidad's mountainous Northern Range. A leader in ecotourism long before the word was even coined Asa Wright is home to thousands of species of birds, mammals, butterflies and flowering plants.

Accompanied by a naturalist guide, who'll point out the wildlife, you'll follow meandering walkways into the forest, where there's no telling what you'll see. Ornate hawk-eagles nest near the main house, golden-headed manakins dart through the trees, and the bell-like call of the bearded bellbird can be heard continuously. Not to be outdone, countless butterflies usually flit from flower to flower, iguanas perch in the trees, and nine-banded armadillos roam the forest floor digging for food.

Even if you prefer to stay in the estate house and just watch the birds in the feeders, it's an immensely rewarding experience. Following a bountiful buffet lunch at the center, you'll drive back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 75-minutes of moderate walking/hiking plus any additional walking at the guests' discretion during free time. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Guests should be in good physical condition. Casual, light-weight clothing; sunglasses; sun cap; insect repellent, and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.
