Humble wooden cottages built among the trees on top of hill overlooking castara bay.
Fantastic views / sunsets with easy access to beautiful beach that also has excellent snorkeling.
Swam with hawksbill turtles, rays, cuttlefish in crystal waters. Saw more birds than at Asa Wright just sitting in the room veranda !!
Castara waterfall nearby is wonderful forest walk in the morning..

Room is complete with refrigerator, small stove. Bathrooms worked fine... no problems with water or elec.
No air conditioning or TV which is GREAT for those seeking a more 'eco' experience. WiFi works well. Mosquito net over bed. Had the best sleep there.

Castara village is very receptive to visitors and there are many options for tours, sea trips, food / supplies. Food is excellent !!
Easy drive to englishman's bay / parlatuvier or back to bucco / crownpoint

beautiful natural getaway

We stayed here for 2 weeks in March (our 3rd visit0 and absolutely loved it! Very rustic, basic but totally comfortable, clean, great service, and what a view -- you are hanging over the water with your own private beach!! Rebecca is very helpful and has become a friend over the years. She is taking credit cards now and I highly recommend that you give her a deposit to make sure she has your place reserved -- plus contact her regularly to make sure she has your reservation.

This was my first time in Castara and Blue Mango was definitely the right choice for accommodation. I stayed in an oceanview room which is to soon be renovated although I felt it was perfect just as is. The location was ideally located close to all shops and Rebecca was very accommodating at the restaurant to cater to all of our desires. I would definitely recommend Blue Mango as I am a travel agent from Canada to all those that wish to encounter an ideal retreat to one of the most beautiful places in Tobago. Not to mention, the amazing Castara waterfalls that is just walking distance away from this villa. It is a must see! Thank you Rebecca for having me stay at your lovely villa retreat. Hope to see you again soon!

Excellent location but terrible service. Rebecca forgot our booking which was done since November. Hence, we were accommodated in a dungeon on the first day. When confronted about the situation she moved us to cliff steps apartment, with a beautiful sea view.
Unfortunately, being unaware of time, we returned 10 minutes late for check out, only to discover that the room attendants tampered with our luggage and were anxious for us to leave.

The hubby and I stayed at Blue Mango Cottages from Dec 27 – Dec 31. This is a fishing village, so please do not expect 5 star accommodations anywhere in the vicinity. After finding out the rental car agencies in Tobago do no take the Discover credit card, we called Rebecca, the owner, who had her son pick us up from the airport arriving to Blue Mango from Scarborough in 45 minutes. It may have been a blessing in disguise we did not have a rental; the roads are severely winding and most motorists are speed demons. The town of Castara is like visiting someone’s neighborhood. There are plenty of homes and most have makeshift bars, restaurants and convenience stores. Blue Mango is no exception. This place hosts at least three cottages and a restaurant. We stayed in SeaSteps. This is located steeply down a flight of stairs but with access to your own beach area. There is an eat in kitchen area open to a barn door with lounge chairs for sunbathing, boat watching or simply lounging. The kitchen is equipped with utensils, a stove and full fridge. We stopped at a supermarket before arriving needing only breakfast items. Fruits can be purchased anywhere on the sides of roads….and I mean anywhere. There is also a bedroom equipped with closet and hangers, a safe and a protective net to ward off mosquitoes which there are plenty of. Please bring insect repellant! The bathroom is off the bedroom with no toiletries, only toilet paper. Although I mentioned this rustic living, it can feel unsafe. The doors lock but if one merely kicked them in, they could enter. Not to mention, the amount of living creatures I witnessed during the day, I often wondered how many found their way into our cottage at night while we slept. During the day, with the barn doors opened, we welcome many birds, who did not stay thanks to my husband. And, the crashing waves every night can sometimes keep you awake. The bad part about staying in this cottage are the steps you must endure at least three times a day. They are steep! Also, Rebecca should provide toiletries in the bathroom: soap, tissues, extra rolls of toilet paper. And the kitchen could use paper towels. Considering the cottage is open and airy, there is often moisture left over from rainfall. This can make any item drying take a considerable more amount of time needed. This moisture also dampens everything: countertops, cloth or cotton materials, etc. Our sheets were never changed, hence the damp complaint nor did we receive fresh towels or washcloths after a couple of days. There also was no hot water in either the shower or the kitchen sink. Now, I get this is the Caribbean, but everyone needs hot water for simple sanitary reasons. However, the view from this cottage is picturesque and we never tired of it. There is no television nor did we have WiFi capability. The no television was a reprieve for us but the WiFi would have been a nice accommodation. Unfortunately, the first couple of days we arrived, the surf was so rough, we were advised not to enter the water. There were also two lifeguards on duty to forewarn swimmers! This made it difficult for us to enjoy not only the beach but our private beach area. The private beach area, right below the cottage is not for lounging but a quick dip, a long look and a shortcut to the beach if you dare. The beach is a makeshift one; there are chairs for $20 purchase, otherwise try to find a dry spot to place your beach towel. At night, take your pick: we ate at Rebecca’s restaurant for three nights. This woman can cook! I had the duck twice and the shrimps once and it was amazing. There is also free Wi-Fi in the restaurant. However, Rebecca was also the most expensive. Our last two nights we ate at Cheno’s, a walk down the road, and it was considerably cheaper. But, there were no options and the portions were much smaller than Rebecca’s. There are plenty of other spots to try; just smile and ask “what’s for dinner?” TIPS: Take the bus. You can purchase tickets from any convenience store or ride the bus into town and pay the fare at the bus terminal. Great option to sit back, watch and ride. In Scarborough, eat at Jatt’s, around the corner from the bus terminal. A lot of good food for the money! Exchange US currency for TT dollars.

Room Tip: Sea Steps was extremely close to the waves and can be hard to endure when trying to sleep.
