March 3-10, 2019Mar 3rd - 10th
Travel in a small group with local guides through less traveled parts of Cuba, the Caribbean's largest and most ecologically diverse island nation, home to 26 endemic birds: the world's smallest, the Bee Hummingbird; one of the rarest woodpeckers, Fernandina's Flicker; and the elusive Blue-headed Quail-Dove. While there will be daily opportunities for birding on this trip, our focus expands to include a range of Cuban fauna and flora, and the ecology and history of regions we visit. Enjoy opprtunities to swim and snorkel. Our Cuban guide will answer your questions and offer explanations that reflect Cuban history, politics, and topics related to daily living in Cuba. The program begins and ends in Havana, an unrivaled colonial city of the Americas. An optional one day/night extension in Havana is offered at the conclusion of the trip. This very popular option includes a guided orientation to Havana, and a guided historical walking tour of Old Havana, the city's hisstoric colonial center, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Havana abounds with historic sites, diverse architecture, museums, and art galleries, underscoring a cultural heritage and recently resurgent energy and verve that is uniquely Cuban.
