Cuba Essential Birding
You will visit some of the most important birding sites in Cuba, including Viñales and the wetlands of the Zapata Peninsula (a Biosphere Reserve). The Zapata Peninsula is home to almost all of Cuba's endemic bird species, and is the best place to find many of them. The tour covers a good mix of habitats, including forests, marshes, mangroves, coastal shrubs, patches of grass, and lagoons.
Everyone will also enjoy seeing the western third of Cuba, including the city of Havana. Cuba’s rich cultural, music and historic traditions will be accessible as you travel throughout the country.
