The Asa Wright Nature Centre is home to more than 400 species of native birds, plus 55 different reptile species, 25 amphibians, more than 600 butterflies and more than 2,000 types of flowering plants. In short, northern Trinidad's Asa Wright Nature Centre is bursting at the seams; it's the ultimate stop for both novice and experienced bird-watchers and nature lovers.
You could easily spend a day at the expansive park (in fact, the center offers overnight accommodations) but most only took two hours to explore the grounds. Be sure to wear insect repellent and long-sleeved clothes since there are plenty of mosquitos on the property.
Asa Wright Nature Centre is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The property's $6 to $10 USD admission fee includes a guided tour at 10:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. On-site facilities include restrooms, parking and a small gift shop. Lunch is also offered on the property but costs an additional fee and requires reservations prior to arrival.
