To visit Tobago is to visit heaven, located in the far reaches of the Caribbean, Tobago is home to a beautiful protected rainforest, filmed by Sir David Attenborough during his Trials of Life series no less! Truly a haven for wildlife lovers, Tobago can offer amazing sights such as the Little Tobago Seabird Sanctuary, and beautiful coral reefs, easily visible through the lovely blue waters.
There are many diving areas too, including Speyside, home to friendly fisherman all too willing to welcome travellers. Come the night time you can marvel at rare turtles as they send their young out to sea. A haven of culture, the home-grown music is sure to delight visitors, springing from traditional calypso, socca styles will soothe your ears and there's even rapso, a more modern hip-hop take on the music.
The many beaches on offer again give you the chance to be at one with nature, witness giant manta rays and whale sharks in their natural environment as you go snorkelling in the South Atlantic or the Orinoco River. In Tobago there are specialist diving instructors to help you on your adventure, regardless of previous experience. Famous explorer Jacques Cousteau was enamoured by the coral reefs, so take some time to explore them too.
