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

Dušan Brinkhuizen
RK, Cuba

The tour was great. It exceeded our expectations. We got more than our money's worth. Part of that was Dušan making everyone feel welcome. He was a great guide and worked really hard at locating Cuban Endemics for us. We also saw, surprisingly, many other North American Warblers. He was very friendly and didn't mind being asked over and over, "which bird is that," even though he had named the bird many times before. Talk about patience!

Forrest Rowland
SPL, Cuba

Forrest Rowland is an outstanding guide! We would definitely travel with him again. Great guy!

Lev Frid
JH, Cuba 2020

Lev worked hard and did a really fine job of finding the endemics and lots of other interesting birds. He maintained good humor and was very pleasant throughout the trip.

Forrest Rowland
GH & CH, Cuba

This was our first Rockjumper trip and it was great. Forrest was an excellent guide, so knowledgeable about the birds and enthusiastic about all living things we came across!

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.
