Located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea,
Puerto Rico is the smallest of the Greater Antilles, part of the
Caribbean Biodiversity Hotspot, and a BirdLife´s Endemic
Bird Area (EBA 029 - Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands).  
Endemics, Antillean and Caribbean specialties, migratory
species, rare birds, native and resident species are waiting for
you to be discovered.
We are open 7 days a week!
With a limited geographic
area, our avifauna consists
of 349 species of birds, of
which 17 are endemic
species. Near 120 species
breed in our territory,
others overwinter in our
archipelago.  While the
Caribbean region hosts
208 endemic bird species,
we have 12% of those
endemic species, plus
other Caribbean
specialties.
"Winter" in Puerto Rico
This is why Puerto Rico
makes an ideal birding
destination.  

"Puerto Rico is an incubator of
evolution, with 16 surviving
endemic bird species on an
island only 100 by 35 miles in
size. In the USA by
comparison, the 48 contiguous
US states have more than 800
times as much land area, but
only 11 surviving endemic bird
species. In addition 25 species
of birds endemic to the West
Indies occur in Puerto Rico."

All-inclusive BIRDING Tour Packages
El Yunque National Forest is located
in the mountains of Sierra de Luquillo,
a 45 minute drive East from San Juan.  
It is the perfect birding spot to find as
many endemic, native, and Antillean
specialties as possible in one day.

El Yunque consists of four forest zones:
Tabonuco, Palo Colorado, Palma de
Sierra and the Cloud Forest.
Depending on the birding trip to El Yunque that you select, we cover from one
to four of these zones.  Effort levels go from easy to low-impact to moderate
and/or challenging.  Disabled birders?  We have the right option for you!  For
El Yunque half, full, and multi-day birding trips, please
visit this section.  
Night owling available!!!
On the Eastern tip, we can find the
five hummingbirds that nest in our
territory.  We
created this birding
route to give you the opportunity to
see all hummers in a short time frame.
 Includes a short stop at El Yunque
National Forest and the Eastern coast
dry zone.  For more information,
visit
this section.
Private birding trips are the best alternative for
birding photographers who require more
time to take home the perfect shot of one our
birds.  

For the past twenty one years, we have offering
this option islandwide.  You will go with a local
Birder Guide directly to where we know the bird
will be.  Excellent for cruise ship passengers.

Beginner birders or photographers can join one
of our photography workshops.
