Idyllic spot on Tobago. Beautiful bays with white sandy beaches. Stunning rainforest as the backdrop. We stayed in tamarind as a couple and it was perfect - just what we wanted. The 'extras' that they lay on and help organise make your stay even easier...More

Better to buy all your necessities before you head up to Castara. Near the airport has a grocery called PennySavers. You can get all your supplies there.

I'm sure they do - but you may have to pay for the apartment/room full price? This is a super friendly retreat, as is the village, so if you want people to chat to, I don't think Castara or Castara Retreats will disappoint... More
