Two Days in T&T in September

I will have (only) two free days to spend in Trinidad and/or Tobago in September after a business trip. I will have stayed for previous two nights at the Hiatt in POS. I will be traveling solo. Looking for advice on how best to spend the two days. Interested in nature and beaches, but open to anything. Advice welcome! Thanks!

Two Days to explore Trinidad and Tobago does not offer much time BUT, I will recommend that for one day you take a trip to the Asa Wright Nature Centre.

Depending on where you are staying,this will take you from POS to Maracas Bay,Las Cuevas Bay and Blanchieusse Bay. It's a very scenic drive through the rain forests, with mountains on one side and spectacular views of the ocean on the other. To do this you can hire a taxi for the day, 1-868-628-TAXI is a very reasonable taxi service.

At Asa Wright you can have lunch, explore the nature trails and go bird watching.

The next day you can take an early flight to Tobago , rent a car and explore the Island. It is very easy to do an Island tour of Tobago in one day. You can explore the beaches of Castara, Englishman's Bay and Parlatuvier making a stop at the Cuffie River Nature retreat.

Take the Roxborough road and go left to Speyside and Charlottville. At Speyside have lunch at Gemma's Sea View Restaurant (very good local food).

Then make your way to Charlotteville and ask about Pirate's Bay which is a great beach, albeit secluded..you can get to it by boat or 100 steps.Man o War Bay is also a very nice beach.

On the drive back from Charlotteville you can stop at Argyle Waterfall, the guides will take you up a short trail to see the 3 tier waterfall.

There are no shortage of places to eat in Tobago and you can find several good restaurants close to the airport for an evening meal before taking the late flight back to Trinidad. I recommend Bonker's at Toucan Inn,Kariwak Village, Pelican Reef and the newly opened Cafe Coco for cocktails.

Hope this helps.

Wow, thanks Island Babe! That's very helpful info. More than I expected. Should be a fun trip, even with only two free days!
