The best beaches to see leatherbacks in Trinidad are Matura Beach and Grande Rivière.  Check out Nature Seekers (http://www.natureseekers.org/tours/), for detailed information. Nesting season is usually between February and August with peak in April/May, but given the high density of nestings in Trinidad and Tobago you should still be able to see some mamas in July, and definitely some baby turtles.
