Cuffie River Nature Resort
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 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 eco-lodge set against a backdrop of mountains and encircled by cool, refreshing mountain streams and pools.
There are just 10 spacious well-decorated rooms, providing a very comfortable base for birders looking to experience the best birding in Tobago.
Menus are crafted from local ingredients and cooking expertise and creativity second to none. Breakfast comprise fresh juices, fresh fruit and cereal plus your own menu selection. Dinner menus are "table d’hôte" and reflect the unique, multi-ethnic nature of Trinidad and Tobago.
"Located on the edges of the oldest protected rainforest in the western hemisphere, Cuffies is acknowledged as Tobago's premier base for bird watchers and nature tours."
"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."
Wildlife greets you on your entrance to Cuffie River, with bands of parrots flying overhead as they make their way to and fro, or hummingbirds of many species whizzing past, mere centimetres from your face.
The Cuffie River Nature Retreat and eco-lodge offers some of the finest bird watching and nature tours in the Caribbean.
Walk in the surroundings and encounter some 30 species of tropical birds before breakfast!
Truly a birding paradise, view at close range the nesting and feeding habits of species, call the birds and be answered in return, observe patterns of socialization between and among species or simply sit back and bask in the sheer beauty of these exotic birds.
Follow the nesting patterns from courtship to the laying and hatching of eggs, to observing the parents helping the fledglings leave the nest by teaching them to fly.
The current Census reveals 100 species to be found at the Retreat and its environs. These include all of the most sought-after exotic birds such as the White-tailed Sabrewing hummingbird, Blue-backed Manakin, Ruby-topaz Hummingbird, Collared Trogon, Trinidad Motmot, Yellow-legged Thrush, Common Potoo, Striped Owl, and Gray-throated Leaftosser.
Recently an albino hummingbird (species not yet defined) has been spotted on the property.
Many feathered friends come visiting at your window and in your room. Others prefer to have you visit them in their personal hideaways as you go on your bird-watching and nature tours.
The Common Potoo and the White-tailed Nightjar both keep you company at dinnertime, perched opposite to the guest dining area where they feed on insects from the adjacent yard light.
