Although the Dominican Republic is perhaps best known for its luxurious beaches, outstanding food, and vibrant culture, a birding tour of the island has much to offer both the avid birder and more general naturalist alike. Because of the amazing biodiversity sustained on the island, Hispaniola ranks highest in the world as a priority for bird protection! This 8 day birdwatching tour provides the perfect opportunity to encounter nearly all of the island’s 33 endemic bird species, plus other Greater Antillean specialties. We accomplish this by thoroughly exploring the island’s variety of habitats, from the evergreen and Pine forests of the Sierra de Bahoruco to the dry forests of the coast. Furthermore, the accommodations throughout are comfortable, ranging from remote cabins deep in the forest, to well-appointed Hotels on the beach, each with its own unique local flair. Join us for this delightful tour to the most diverse island in the Caribbean!
