Discover the paths of the oldest forest preserve in the western hemisphere when you visit Tobago Forest Reserve. Since 1776 the sprawling arboreous expanse has been a protected reserve, covering two thirds of the island. In the depths of the 3,958 ha (9,780 ac) tropical rainforest, an abundance of flora and fauna is yours to explore. With over 210 species of rare and indigenous bird, recommendations state to visit the rainforest with a pre arranged guide, who have the expertise needed to help you find as much of the wildlife and rare plant species as possible.
