Cuba with ABA Host Nate Swick

YES! It is still possible to go to Cuba in 2018! 

Join us on a magical journey to the land of the enchanting Cuban Tody, the eerie sounding Cuban Crows, the ridiculously tiny Bee Hummingbird, and so much more. Come and enjoy the miniature Silver palms of Cayo Coco and bird the land that Hemingway used as a getaway! Enjoy getting to know the birds with Arturo Kirkconnell, the author of the Field Guide to the Birds of Cuba, and meet ornithological legend Orlando Garrido, a world famous tennis player turned birder and field guide author.

This Cuban tour provides you with a great opportunity to see all possible Cuban endemic birds. Of course, we will take in all the birds—among them a goodly number of Caribbean endemics. We’ll look for Gundlach’s Hawk, Bee Hummingbird (the world’s smallest bird!), Cuban Trogon, Cuban Tody, Cuban Parakeet, Zapata Wren, and 18 other birds found nowhere else on Earth.

We will also get to experience the local Cuban culture, and have an opportunity to explore Havana and other interesting locations. Our friendly Cuban bird guides offer a rich local perspective on Cuban life, in addition to their extensive knowledge of the country’s birds and wildlife. This is a trip that you don’t want to put off!
