HADCO Experiences is the most recently established Division within HADCO Group of Companies, that is focused on driving eco-tourism in Trinidad and Tobago. Under this Division, we have HADCO Experiences at Asa Wright Nature Centre and Mt. Plaisir Estate Hotel.
As a wholly owned local company, we are very passionate about our culture and our beautiful natural environment. This can be seen in many of our diversification efforts into the Recycling and Manufacturing sectors and our sponsorship of HADCO Phase II Pan Groove steel orchestra.
We love hiking and exploring our islands, we love the beaches and the rivers and the incredible biological diversity that can be found here. We love our islands, and the business of HADCO Experiences is to share some of the magic through curated experiences for people visiting our islands, people who want to unplug from their busy lives to relax and immerse themselves in nature, people who are passionate about culture and the environment.
We offer accommodations at the ecolodge at Asa Wright Nature Centre and soon to come at Mt. Plaisir Estate Hotel; as well as experiential vacation packages, where we create an entire bespoke vacation package based on our customers’ desires and what they wish to experience in our beautiful twin-isle. Experiences such as birdwatching, hiking, turtle-watching as well as cultural experiences such as visits to pan yards to experience the steelpan outside of the Carnival season are included, among other activities.
Our involvement with Asa Wright Nature Centre is a natural result of our love for our country, for nature and the desire to protect and preserve our environment for future generations to enjoy. There is something special about Asa Wright Nature Centre. We have had great experiences there, and when the opportunity arose to invest in this project by managing the operations of the ecolodge, we knew we were up to the challenge. This is an investment of love, of pride in our country and what it has to offer.
We are also currently in the midst of renovations at Mt. Plaisir Estate Hotel in Grande Riviere and hope to reopen to the public by the end of June 2023. This location is very special as it is a nesting site for the endangered Leatherback turtle.
Everyone is welcome as we endeavour to share the most authentic taste of Trinidad and Tobago. With emphasis on our rich biodiversity, outdoor activities, flavourful local cuisine, exhilarating festivals and year-round social events, we are on a mission to provide enjoyable, unforgettable and sustainable experiences that contribute to the promotion of our culture, and the preservation of our heritage and natural environment.
We invite you to join us on this incredible journey as we make your wildlife vacation dream a reality. We can help you plan your journey before you even arrive or you can wake up every morning and let the day lead the way.
Just outside your window, right on your doorstep, 200+ species of birds, whose habitats have been boosted with special pollinator gardens which attract not just the birds but also the butterflies and the bees.
