Cuba Essential Birding Tour Pricing

2020 Pricing: $3,290 US Dollars

for 8 Days and 7 Nights

 

*Prices with a group of 8 participants

 

Inclusions: 

 

  • Tour package includes all lodging, meals* and access fees to reserves, parks and other birding sites. 

  • Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services of an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area. Our Cuba Essential Birding Tours are led by Arturo Kirkconnell, who is the author of the Field Guide to the Birds of Cuba and is widely recognized as the premier bird guide of Cuba. Each tour is also accompanied by an Audubon Society educator.

  • Top-Rated Preparation Services: We support your preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details and more), information on entry into Cuba and information on travel health issues, packing information and more. Most of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is the best they have ever seen. 

  • Transport and Airport Transfers: 

    • Local ground transport is included. This includes a large transport van for most of the trip.

    • We arrange transport to the hotel at the airport upon arrival, and we arrange for a transfer back to the airport at the end of the trip.

  • Acre for Bird Conservation: We support bird conservation, saving several acres for bird conservation for every booking.  For every tour participant, we provide support for bird conservation by the acre.  Acres are sometimes purchased, but we often support conservation easements through a variety of reputable conservation partners, such as the Rainforest Trust and the World Land Trust.  We have protected over 70,000 acres over the last three years. 

  • Small Group Pricing:

    • We are happy to provide pricing for private groups with fewer than four participants. 

    • Our least expensive trip of 8 days and 7 nights does assume a group size of eight persons, though we would likely also run this tour with seven persons.

 

*Pricing Notes and More Details:

 

  • US Dollar Pricing: The price is fixed in USD. There is intense demand for service related to tourism in Cuba. Once booked, we will honour our prices as invoiced. If you book late, there is a risk of price increases due to inflation in the Cuban tourism sector (lodges and fuel primarily).  

  • Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom and/or Canada. However, we do take currency exchange transaction fees into account (typically about 1.5%).

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals. Supper is included on the arrival day of the tour.  Breakfast is the only meal served on the departure day of the tour. Beverages at breakfast and lunch are included.  Supper includes water at the table and a soft drink. You must pay for any alcholic beverages on the tour. 

  • Note on Beverage Inclusion: Each day, we provide water for refilling your personal bottles during the birding day. 

  • Group Size:

  • We anticipate a group of 4 to 8 participants, and pricing is based upon this group size.

 

Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:

 

Single Room Supplement: 

  • The single supplement for our 8 Day/7 Night tour is $280.

  • This is the price we charge for the additional cost of anyone not sharing a room with another birder (and/or a spouse). If you want a single room, please let us know. We are often able to find a roommate for those wanting to share a room with a person of the same sex.

 

Notes on Other Tour Costs: Exclusions: 

  • You will need to pay for any flight costs involved in this trip. 

    o    This will include flights your flights to Cuba.

  • The tour fee does not include taxes/fees for entering or exiting the country, telephone calls, laundry and other items of a personal nature.

  • The tour price does not include the price of any alcoholic beverages.

  • Tips for birding guides, trip drivers, restaurant servers or hotel staff are not included in the tour price. Tipping is much like that in the United States.
