We are back from our first visit to Tobago, and it will not be our last. Where do I start, first again many thanks to all for the information, that we learned and followed. We stayed at the Rex, as mentioned, no problems, staff was super, security guys were awesome, maids were great. Very clean, basic hotel, and the locals crusing around were great to talk with. Pool is beautiful, for a 2.5 star hotel, very pleased. Would I stay here again, yup, but I would not do all inclusive again, we had no appetite due to the heat, so fruit, water, and basics was all we really wanted, but not fault to the hotel, the food was fine.
Yes Tourisim, was great, punctual, and Dennis our guide was very nice and full of information. He provided us a full day tour around the island and it was fantastic, and very interesting, thanks again Dennis. Airport transfers went nice and smooth.
We flew with Caribbean airlines, direct to Trinidad, and then the island hopper over again with caribbean airlines over to Tobago, great flight, they even managed to get us on an earlier flight over to Tobago. We were not so lucky to get an extended stay as many of our fellow guests at the Rex did, from the iceland volcano. We met some lovely people from around the world during our stay. Never felt threatened, never worried about our safety, the local people were warm and friendly. Sure you saw the local town idiot, or drunk, but such is life, you find this everywhere and anywhere, you see it in my small backwards town that I live in, and again it was never an issue, or problem.
We were lucky and had some rain while we were there, and believe me it was really nice, then as fast as it came it was gone. We witnessed the leatherback turtles, in early morning on our beach, what a sight to see this living creature, just beautiful, we were lucky enough to see a Mot Mot bird, plus many other types.
Great time, Tracy & Lloyd
