The Rainforest, the Bird Life and the Leatherback Turtles

Just 11,000 years ago Trinidad was part of South America, the island shares its fauna and flora with that continent while Tobago is part of the arc of volcanic island stretching along the Caribbean tectonic plate border extending to the US in the north. You visit three boutique hotels and a campsite on a beautiful beach untouched by any roads. Of course the hotels were chosen for their authenticity. In Tobago, you visit the oldest protected rainforest in the Americas with stunning views from almost every turn. In Trinidad, stay in a old estate house-hotel favoured by orthinologists, nestled in the Northern Range before a two day forest trek to another converted estate house on a leatherback turtle nesting beach on the remote north-east coast.
