Tobago is the Caribbean you have seen on postcards of turquoise water and coconut trees. And Tobago people are warm, welcoming and cheerful instead. Come and explore this island’s rich history, culture, and biodiversity. It is not as commercially developed as the majority of its tourism destination where they are trying to preserve the rustic environment of the island to be appreciated by nature lovers. Tobago days are lazy stretches punctuated with rooster crows. The people are polite but subdued, going about their business as if in quiet reflection. The sun encourages you to find shade under a thatched roof of palm fronds and to reach for an icy glass of refreshment.

Accommodation: Moonlight Mountain Retreat is situated high in the hills of rural Tobago with spectacular views of the Caribbean and Atlantic. Atop its own rainforest nature trail with bamboo grove and a haven for wildlife, we offer a unique experience of Caribbean living in a traditional style house, surrounded by tropical fruits, flowers and birds.
