Off the beaten path via a winding road once leaving the highway,you find yourself at a restored colonial "big house." the wide veranda if the house overlooks a valley and is the hotpot for viewing birds of all...

If you are a birder, and if you are not, this is an amazing place to stay. Quiet and deep in the rain forest, very relaxing.

I love hummingbirds so I visited Asa Wright and it was totally worth it. There were so many different ones at the feeders on the veranda and on the trail. There were lots of other birds and wildlife too, but the hummingbirds were the best part for me. Definitely worth a visit.

The main house of the center was the plantation house, and has the look and feel of a British Colony house. There are only two guest rooms in the plantation house, so if you... More

We went to the Nature Centre to see the birds. Besides being in a stunningly beautiful region, the Asa Wright Nature Center is a beautiful place to spend the afternoon. The building itself is full of history and local charm with lots of antiques in each room. We had lunch in the beautiful dining room with large open windows to... More
