Nature At Her Most Magnificent!
Tobago, the gentle and tranquil half of the nation state of Trinidad and Tobago, the most southerly islands of the Caribbean island chain, exudes a lush, relaxed gracefulness throughout its entire 16-mile length and 7-mile width. Tobago, for several years voted the world's leading Eco-tourism Destination, gently charms her callers, with the finest opportunities for eco-tourism: a pristine rain forest - the oldest protected in the western hemisphere: ... exotic birding ... mountainous grandeur ...unexpected waterfalls ...beautiful exotic birds ...protected marine parks harbouring fascinating worlds of underwater coral ...white sand beaches ... warm-hearted and generous people and the Cuffie River Nature Retreat - a rainforest retreat, mere steps away from the finest rainforest birding adventure tours.
On the edge of Tobago's rainforest, surrounded by wild heliconias, bamboo groves and ancient forest trees and cradled in the remote and idyllic Runnemede valley lies our eco-lodge, the Cuffie River Nature Retreat - a secluded rainforest resort offering the ultimate in tropical rainforest birding and rainforest adventure tours. The resort is a remote yet modern, upmarket facility set against a backdrop of mountains and encircled by cool, refreshing mountain streams and pools. This is nature tourism at its most subtle yet refined - allowing you a complete rainforest experience while enjoying the creature comforts of home.
The concept of this eco-tourism resort was born out of the rural development experience of owner/manager, Regina Dumas. Her work in this field led her throughout the Caribbean where issues affecting rural people and their livelihoods were all too evident. For Regina, the human, environmental and infrastructural factors were found to be the most significant to the well-being of the rural sector and thus played a central role in the envisioning and development of this project. The result? A beautiful blending of attractive architecture set in the midst of idyllic rainforest and with warm and welcoming hospitality awaiting every guest who enters the eco-lodge.
