Caribbean Nature Lovers

The Caribbean is often the first place nature lovers think of to go on vacation, and if it’s not on your list, it should be. Islands all over the Caribbean have fabulous opportunities for nature lovers. There are lush rainforests, breathtaking natural rock formations and some of the most exotic and amazing animals you’ll ever see. Here are some of the best spots in the Caribbean for nature lovers.

Leatherback Spawning

Watching sea turtles come onto the beach to spawn is a natural experience you’ll never forget, and Trinidad and Tobago are among the few locations where you can get to see it. Head to Turtle Beach at the right time to see the female Leatherback’s valiant struggle to find the proper place to lay and bury her eggs before returning to the Caribbean depths.

Bird Sanctuaries

The lush tropical climate of the Caribbean offers some phenomenal opportunities for birding. From the Asa Wright Nature Centre in Trinidad to the Main Ridge reserve in Tobago, the Caribbean is a birders paradise.

Hunte’s Gardens

If you’re as fascinated by flora as fauna, you’ll want to spend some time in Hunte’s Gardens, a massive swathe of forest on the Castle Grant plantation in Barbados, which features some of the most incredible plants and flowers you’re ever likely to set eyes on.
