If a nonstop party is your idea of fun, be sure to visit during Carnival season.

Get some rest in advance so you can make the most of the two-day street parade that starts on the Monday before Ash Wednesday and ends late Tuesday night. Contact the hotel for information about Carnival packages that start the Friday before the festivities.
- Caroni Bird Sanctuary (1-hour drive)
The Scarlet Ibis, the national bird of Trinidad and Tobago, is on full display at this beautiful bird sanctuary. Tour the grounds to see herons, egrets and other species, or talk to a tour operator about a ride in a flat-bottomed motorboat and catch a glimpse of the swamp's other residents. If you're lucky, you might see boa constrictors and fish, such as the mudskipper and mangrove snapper.
