The world is a big place, yet my boyfriend and I couldnt wait to return to Castara for the second time, and this time stay at Castara Retreats for the duration. The retreat has evolved in the two years since we last visited, but retains its magic and charm! It's the perfect place to unwind and relax in simple but beautifully appointed lodges (we stayed in Fishermans which is lovely and private with incredible views and a veranda). Changes include the terrace restaurant which has been beautifully crafted and serves lovely food and cocktails.
Porridge and Jeanelle (and Shaq!) as always go the extra mile to help and advise and make the holiday special. The team beyond - (the cleaning ladies who also do a laundry service) are lovely.
Will the bar man also extremely helpful and makes brilliant cocktails.
The wildlife is amazing. Insect repellent is a must.
We hope to return for a third time.

- Castara Retreats is a small Tobago eco resort superbly located overlooking the Bay of Castara, with stunning views of the Caribbean and mountains. For those seeking holidays in Tobago the seven tropical hardwood accommodations are built to the highest standards and are set right above Castara beach in lush tropical gardens. Backed by the deep green of the oldest protected rainforest in the Western Hemisphere and framed by mango trees and bamboo, Castara Retreats offers Caribbean vacations in a lush tropical paradise where guests can relax and live in the landscape around them. The lodge accommodation offers 15 separately available areas, each with wonderful privacy and exclusive terraces, which can be rented individually by couples, or together for larger groups and families. The accommodation is specially designed to create open, spacious living areas that allow uninterrupted views of the beach and rainforest, cool sea breezes and the natural sights and sounds of the ocean, rainforest and village. Each lodge or apartment is constructed of red cedar, a local hardwood, and is from sustainable sources. The bedrooms, each with en suite showers and either queen size or twin beds all have full size mosquito nets on suspended wooden frames. The spacious living areas have panoramic views of the two beaches looking north-west and also to the coastline looking south-west, and stunning sunsets over the Caribbean. Each accommodation has the advantage of free Wi-Fi internet access.
