Review: Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge

Two Red-lored Amazons in flight

Tranquilo Bay exceeded even my high expectations. I was impressed by the comfort, service, great guides, and the variety of excursions and activities offered. An attractive option for groups where not everyone is a hardcore birder.

Just the names of these birds hold so much promise for any birding trip to Trinidad & Tobago, but you have no idea HOW Ruby, Scarlet and Purple these and other birds can be until you see them in person. The islands of Trinidad & Tobago (T&T to some) are located just off the northeast coast of South America and have become a popular vacation spot for nature lovers. Ocean breezes moderate the tropical, humid climate and the bird and mammal life is impressive for such a small land area. More than 460 birds, 55 reptiles, 25 amphibians, and 617 butterflies have been documented here. My wife, Pam, and I visited Trinidad & Tobago for the second time in February of 2013. Below is a gallery of some of my favorite eye-popping beauties. Birds of Trinidad & Tobago Photo Gallery.
