Cuba Birdwatching Small Group Tour

Our Cuba Birdwatching small group tour offers the perfect introduction to Cuba’s wonderful birdlife, as well as providing a glimpse of its vibrant culture and people.

There is a long list of both resident and migrant birds to be found in a variety of habitats including approximately 25 endemic species, about half of which are endangered. This suggested itinerary will provide an opportunity to see all of these as well as many other Caribbean and North American species. Your journey will take you through a great variety of landscapes and habitats, from lush forests to craggy hills, vast wetlands and coral beaches.

You will travel as part of a small group with a maximum of 10 fellow travellers and will be escorted by a leader/guide from the UK. You will also have the services of the very best, knowledgeable and experienced local guides. This is a relaxing birding tour, yet will be a rewarding and exciting experience, as you can hope to achieve a long list of neo-tropical species.

The Cuba Birdwatching Small Group Tour will run from the 12th – 24th January 2020.

With the optional extension in Havana the dates would be 12th – 27th January 2020
