Outdoor Activities

The Scarlet Ibis is one of Trinidad and Tobago's national birds. The bird is protected by law and the Caroni Bird Sanctuary, located in the Caroni Swamp, on the North-West of Trinidad, is its home. The large wetland area was named as Caroni Bird Sanctuary to provide refuge for the Scarlet Ibis and other birds in 1953. Boat tours leave late in the afternoon, meandering through the swamps and enabling visitors to catch a most spectacular view of the Scarlet Ibis flocks as they make their way home at day's end.
