Your Caroni Wetlands Sunset experience starts with your pickup at your hotel lobby and you are driven in comfort on a scenic roadway to the Caroni Wetlands.

Arrive at the Caroni Bird Sanctuary, a 48-square-mile (77-sq-km) wetland area on Trinidad's western coast. Part dense mangrove swamp and part sparkling lagoon, this richly vegetative nature reserve is thriving with a variety of wildlife waiting to be discovered. Be sure to keep eye out for the blood-red Scarlet Ibis—Trinidad's national bird—streaking across the sky.

Board a spacious flat-bottomed boat with outboard motor and drift slowly along the swamp's waterways, taking in sights of thick foliage and exotic birds, like the large-billed tern and snowy egret. Red, black, and white mangroves flank the edges of the channels, thick aerial roots add another layer to the surrounding scenery. You eventually find yourself in a peaceful lagoon, which is the perfect place to watch the spectacular home flight of the large bright red Scarlet Ibis to their roosting trees or nesting sites. See them flying by the dozens, the golden hues of the setting sun accompany the experience. Nature par excellence! 

At the end of your tour, enjoy a comfortable ride back to your hotel with a heart filled with Trinidad and Tobago!
