For easier understanding of our home page and website:

  • Special Events - Activities that are offered during a limited time and that are sold to the general public.  A minimum of participants is required to
    guarantee these events.  If you have a group and want a different date for any of these event, please contact us.
  • Private Tours - We specialize in customizing tours for individuals, extended families, and groups on a private basis.  Most of these tours are
    available on a  daily basis subject to reservations and availability of our staff, equipment, etc.
  • Regional Menu - We have divided our territory in five main regions.  If you are planning to explore Puerto Rico, this is an excellent way to start your
  • Thematic Tours - This is another way to look for the activities you want to do while visiting our territory as per your preferences.
Do I need reservations to join a tour?

Birding and bird photography trips are offered on a private basis (by appointment) as each customer has his own way to do birding.  Reservations are always required to guarantee the date, specially during
high season.  Special scheduled events are offered for our all-inclusive birding trips.
What is the difference between a private tour and a special event?

  • Private tours are customized and offered on appointment as per our clients needs and special requirements.  A private tour could be offered with a minimum of one participant; the client selects the
    date, time, etc.

  • Public tours are offered as special events with specific dates open to anyone that wants to join the tour.  A minimum of participants is required to offer tours as special events.
Can I join a private tour?

Private tours are designed for those who ask for a customized activity.  We will do our best to find the best alternative for you on a different date or time.
Can I book a tour online?

At this moment, and as we mainly offer private tours, we don´t have an online booking engine.  We are evaluating different platforms so that our clients will be able to book online.  
Do you sell your tours through Trip Advisor, AirBnB, or any other online platform?

The prices of the tours that you find at this website are net prices.  When you buy through an OTA you usually pay 20% to 30% over our sales price.  Any discount is given directly to our client.  
How can I book a tour with your company?

  • Booking process and methods are described in our General Terms and Conditions.  For extended families or groups, special terms and conditions applies.
  • Text message, FaceBook, WhatsUp or any social media platform are not considered valid booking methods, just a start, as the don´t comply with European Regulations.
Unique opportunity to see endemics species, such as our Oriole, and the rare Yellow-shouldered Blackbird in the same day.
Puerto Rican Orole
Yellow-shoulderd Blackbird
Sixteen of our seventeen endemic bird species are found in this region.  We have improved our private birding trips in this area so that you can have more time on the
field looking for your target birds.  As there are many places to go for birds, we have only included two options where you will find as many birds as possible in one
day.  If you combine both trips, you save while you go up to the mountain and down to the coast.

Full-day birding trips

We also have
all-inclusive birding
packages from 2d/1n
through 8d/7n.
Customized trips
Add extra time and look for the Puerto Rican Nightjar
Birding at the west side of the island requires
more time as you need to do more driving to
go from one birding spot to the other.  Instead
of offering half-day birding trip, we improved
our trip top rated options into full-day trips
going from the coast (
Lajas/Cabo Rojo) to
the mountains (
Maricao/Las Marías) and the
Western Loop which combines both coast
and mountain.

Other options available, please
contact us.
Quality of time is important when you want to
take as many picture as possible of our birds.  
We know what our clients want during our bird
photography trips and that is why the birding
route is different to the one we take on full-day
birding trips.  

This alternate route will allow you to expend
more time to take your best shot.  Let us know
wish list and we will make it happen.
Puerto Rican Association of Interpretation and Education (APIE, Spanish)
Everyone has its own style when going for
birds, that is why we have been customizing
birding trips for the past 26 years.  As you can
imagine, there are more places to go birding
than the ones included in this site.

We can customized your trip as per your
special requests.  Traveling with kids?  Slow
mobility and looking for an  itinerary to meet
your needs?  Please
contact us and we will
assist you!
