Anybody for Puerto Rico?

Puerto Rico, once a Spanish colony and now a U.S. territory is an ideal destination for an easy-going tropical birding holiday in the depths of the British winter. The island, approximately 100 miles long by 35 miles wide, has an excellent road system providing convenient access to its many forest reserves. Our new tour will aim to see 18 of the 19 island endemics (the emblematic Puerto Rican Parrot is currently not possible due to the fragile state of the population following the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in 2017) and more than two dozen Caribbean specialties, visiting every habitat from the enchanting elfin woods of Maricao to the bird-rich thorn scrub of the Guanica Dry Forest. There’ll also be some optional snorkelling of the very highest quality over pristine coral reeds… and the odd Pina Colada, where this favourite cocktail was first invented. General Manager Andy Tucker, who knows the island well, will be co-leading our first tour in March 2020.
