Our Cuba – Caribbean Endemics Birding tours target almost all 28 Cuban endemic birds and further 23 Caribbean specials, as well as great wintering North American migrants. Using the services of local bird specialists at each site, we guarantee an impressive success rate in observing the island’s amazing avian diversity. From the world’s tiniest bird (the Bee Hummingbird) to such sought-after species as Giant Kingbird, the cute Cuban Tody, the beautiful Cuban Trogon, Gundlach’s Hawk, Oriente and Yellow-headed Warbler, Zapata Wren and no less than four species of stunning quail-doves, Cuba is an absolute pleasure to bird. On this tour we will cover a wide variety of habitats, ranging from interior tropical forests and mangroves, to extensive wetlands and white sand beaches along the northern coral cays. The awesome birdlife is further augmented by ease of travel, comfortable lodges, fascinating culture, a turbulent history, vintage cars that take one back to the 50’s and friendly people.

What our clients say about us

Forrest Rowland
RF, Cuba

I highly recommend Forrest Rowland as a remarkably talented birding guide with exceptional birding skills, knowledge and helpfulness to get everyone on the bird.

Dušan Brinkhuizen
DS, Cuba

We had a great time birding with you. Thanks for working so hard making sure we saw all the target endemic and near-endemic birds. We very much enjoyed being around you because you have an upbeat and positive demeanour. Thanks for pointing out so many wintering warblers that we, on the west coast of US, do not get to see. Will always remember the Tody and the "G" Hawk.

Adam Walleyn
PG & LA, Cuba 2018

We were surprised to hear that this was Adam Walleyn's first trip to Cuba as well as ours. He obviously prepared very well for the trip and clearly knew his birds. The local guides he used were very familiar with the birds and contributed both to the birding and culture of each region. Alejandro, the cultural guide and facilitator of the trip was both entertaining and knowledgeable and contributed a lot to our understanding of Cuba's past and present. Having a bus driver like Ronaldo who was familiar with birds and birding was a real plus for the tour.

Forrest Rowland
JL & DL, Cuba 2020

Forrest did a fantastic job of making this tour run smoothly. Forrest was always in good spirits and clearly loves the region. We had great views of all the birds we could have hoped for, and Forrest's knowledge is exceptional.

Dušan Brinkhuizen
CF, Cuba

Dušan was great. He took charge of the group with enthusiasm. His birding skills are excellent. The office staff were super in responding to emails and answering questions. I have told my birding friends to consider Dušan and Rockjumper when they schedule their next trip.
