About the neighbourhood
Castara is a small friendly working fishing village on the Caribbean side of Tobago & on the edge of the Rain forest. We have 2 sandy beaches, a waterfall, forest walks & several small shops, bars & restaurants all within a short walk. Castara is centrally located so it is easy to take day trips to places such as Englishman's bay, Charlottesville & Speyside. Either drive yourself or hire a car & driver for the day Or take a Boat tour that includes snorkeling, beach BBQ & swim in the famous Nylon Pool-its a great day out & something that we do on a regular bases! Englishman's bay-if you walk is approx 1.10mins away. Go there for lunch at Miss Eula's -do visit - the scenery is breathtaking!
Getting around
Everything in the village is just a short walk away. You can choose to rent a car for all or part of your stay or why not hire a driver & car for a day or half day. That way you can sit back, watch the scenery & get local information on the places that you visit...!
