Cuba is one of the most interesting Caribbean islands due to its rich avifauna comprising of 25 endemics and many Caribbean endemics, which are also found here.
We offer an excellent Caribbean birding holiday for those who enjoy looking for 20+ endemics, sunshine, culture, music, old timers and mojitos. Time stands still but salsa moves everybody at this unique destination.
North American migrants also pass through the island or spend the winter in large numbers. Almost 350 bird species have been recorded in Cuba.
From Bee Hummingbird, the smallest bird in the World through the ever attractive Cuban Tody to the most elusive Gundlach’s Hawk there are many endemics and other great birds to look for during this tour.
This long island is mostly charcterised by lowlands, but there are three mountain chains as well: the Cordilleras to the West, Sierra del Escambray in the Centre and Sierra Maestra to the East.
One of the most famous places is the Zapata Marsh, located South East of Havana that supports 19 of the 25 endemics which we will search at Cienaga de Zapata and other parts of the Zapata Peninsula.
We also visit the Soroa region which is a nice hilly region, still protecting some good forests with several iconic endemic species.
We spend some time at Camagüey area & La Belén National Park to find Giant Kingbird, Cuban Parakeet and Cuban Parrot.
Finally the top of the cake will be a visit to some of the Northern cays which offer further endemics and perhaps the most relaxing birding during a colourful birding trip.
