To the Jungle in Tobago

An April 2006 trip to Trinidad and Tobago by Shannon Schiner

Quote: A small weekend adventure to explore the jungles, beaches, restaurants, and famous hot sauces of Tobago.
Gorgeous beach, amazing restaurant, fabulous birds and quiet location. Rooms are clean, but definitely simple. Perfect for people who will be out exploring during the day. Definitely a hotel for nature lovers. Perhaps not the best place for those requiring a lot of distractions, amenities, or activities. The rooms do not have TV or hairdryers. However, the hotel does offer afternoon tea with the birds, and it has one of the most beautiful beaches around. The perfect hotel for those who would like to completely escape reality and reconnect with nature.

Excellent food in a peaceful open air restaurant! Everything is organic and most of the herbs and spices are grown right on the property. The evening that I dined there I had an amazing meal: rosemary split pea soup, Greek salad with goat cheese, fresh fish and coconut ice-cream. Nice ambiance, pleasant service and definitely exceptional cuisine. Highly recommended. In addition to the the restaurant, the property also boasts a few rooms and operates as a hotel. It is conveniently located near the airport.
