Tobago is an authentic and unspoilt Caribbean experience, free from the high rise and fast paced development of other islands. With an abundance of land and water-based activities, events and festivals running throughout the year, dive enthusiasts, romantics, adventure seekers, bird-watchers and beach lovers all have Tobago on their to-do lists!
With over 200 bird species, over 6000 species of plants and animals, 300 species of South Atlantic coral, over 600 species of fish, and Main Ridge Forest Reserve, the oldest protected rainforest in the Western Hemisphere, there’s plenty to see on the beautiful island of Tobago. The island has earnt several prestigious eco awards including the World Travel Awards ‘Best Eco Destination in the World’ and the Caribbean Travel Awards Committee ‘#1 Eco-Destination in the Caribbean’.
The Spanish, British, Dutch, Courlanders, French and Americans have all historically fought over Tobago, resulting in a very rich history and fascinating culture, celebrated annually during the Tobago Heritage Festival which runs from early July to August. Other festivals in Tobago include Jazz Experience, held in April, or for something a little different, visit the village of Buccoo and watch goat and crab racing at Easter!
