CASTARA is a fishing village situated on the mid-North-Western coast of Tobago. It is about 32Km (20 miles) from Crown Point airport and 26Km (16 miles) from the sea-port at Tobago's capital Scarborough.
Trinidad and Tobago are the southernmost islands of the Caribbean chain, only seven miles from the Venezuelan coast and geographically part of South America. The two islands are about 21 miles apart and together form an independent republic with English the native language. Tobago is a tranquil, relatively undiscovered island with towering tropical forests rising to 1,860 ft in its central region.
It is lush throughout, with a rich variety of birds, flowers, and marine life, including two coral reefs. It has justifiably been named Robinson Crusoe Island. In addition to some of the world's loveliest unspoiled beaches that are fringed by palm, breadfruit, mango, and banana trees, Tobago offers a full range of activities that includes a botanic garden, bird watching, remote waterfalls, tennis, snorkeling, scuba diving, and the world famous Mt. Irvine 18 hole championship golf course. Also available: rental of leisure craft with crew for sailing, fishing, swimming off the islands, and parties in the sea.
