Cuffie River Retreat

For perhaps the most unique experience you will ever have in the tropics, you must book a stay at Cuffie River Nature Retreat and Eco-lodge. The lodge is located on Tobago at the rainforest's edge in the Runnymede Valley on the Cuffie River, surrounded by old-growth rainforests and bamboo gardens. The resort is an upscale retreat, but focuses primarily on the flora and fauna of the tropical rainforest through birdwatching and rainforest adventure excursions. The lodge is ecologically friendly, blending in perfectly with its surroundings. There is plenty more do at the retreat than just bird watch. The resort still offers the amenities a guest would expect on a tropical vacation - kayaking, beach outings, sunset sailing, and snorkeling. There is also an above-ground pool (above ground so the soil didn't have to be excavated), fed by charcoal filtered rainwater instead of chlorine. It really is a very green resort.

Travelers hoping to eat on-site will not be left unsatisfied at Cuffie River Retreat, as they have some nice on-site dining choices. One such possibility is Cuffie River Nature Retreat Restaurant, which is a good choice for hungry guests looking for some Caribbean cuisine. Next, check out one of the nearby bars, like No Problem Beach Bar.

Situated on the island of Tobago, near Moriah, Cuffie River Retreat is a great choice for customers interested in staying on this beautiful island. From this accommodation, the center of Scarborough is five miles (eight kilometers) to the south west.
