Cuba Eco Tours - Ecotourism & Adventure /Cuba Birding
 

Colibri o ZunzunFor its privileged geographic position, Cuba is visited each year by a large amount of migratory birds, many of which make a brief visit to the island to rest after long journeys and then continue their flight towards the south; others receive the category of winter birds for remaining on the island until the spring.

Cuba is an attractive destination for bird watchers for its geographic location, the conservation of its ecosystems, sub tropical climate, great biodiversity, and high level of endemism.

Program of 14 Nights and 15 days of which 3 nights are in Havana (first 2 and last); 4 nights in the Zapata Peninsula (Bahia of Pigs), 2 nights in Varadero, 2 nights in Soroa and 3 nights in Viñales Valley.
