Cuba Comprehensive Birding: Cuban and Caribbean Endemics

Trip Description

Brief Itinerary

More details about this Trip:

You will visit some of the most important birding sites in Cuba, including the wetlands of the Zapata Peninsula (a Biosphere Reserve), Viñales, and Cayo Coco. Cayo Coco is one of the most important migratory stops in all of the Caribbean. A good mix of habitats will be covered, including forests, marshes, mangroves, coastal shrubs, patches of grass, and lagoons.


Everyone will also enjoy seeing Cuba from Havana, Trinidad, Camagüey (a UNESCO World Heritage site), and most of the western two-thirds of the country. You will experience Havana (the capital city of Cuba), the countryside, and a good mix of small-town life. Cuba’s rich cultural, music, and historic traditions will be evident as you travel throughout the country.
