We are not currently booking bird watching tours. Below is only an example for people who wish to do a self guided tour.

Cuba Travel U.S.A. took our first birdwatchers to Cuba in 1977. Cuba offers a vast quantity of bird life for our clients. Cuba is the home for more than 350 different species of birds. The experts we took to Cuba had their best days ever. You can do the same!

 We started taking Americans to Cuba in 1977. Thus far we have taken over 20,000 and none of them have had any problems, either with the Cuban government or the U.S. government. Our friends at the Center for Constitutional Rights has advised us to tell our clients that if any of them ever have trouble with the U.S. government over travel to Cuba that they will provide "free" lawyers and "free" legal defense no matter where that client lives in the U.S. Can't beat that! If you know the secrets, and we invented most of them, you won't have problems. Give us a call at Cuba Travel U.S.A., and let us tell you how you can go bird watching in Cuba.
