El Yunque National Forest
Half or full day, several options available

Nominated as one of the new Seven Wonders of Nature, El Yunque is the
best birding spot in the eastern region.  There is no other place in Puerto
Rico like El Yunque.  In only one birding spot, you will have endemics, such
as:  Elfin-woods Warbler, Tody, Lizard Cuckoo, Bullfinch, Tanager, Spindalis,
Oriole, Screech Owl, Emerald, Green Mango, Flycatcher, Parrot,
Woodpecker.  It only takes a 45 minutes drive from hotels, port or airport in

mobility birders, it also can be combined with the Colibrí Quest or the Eastern
Coastal Dry Forest.  Butterfly lover? You can combine birds and butterflies.

"As the path of the birds in the air or of fishes in the water is invisible, even so is the path of the possessors of wisdom."
.
For many years, birders have included in their itinerary the Humacao Nature Reserve as the only birding spot in the
eastern tip of the Archipelago of Puerto Rico.   Not any more.
 

When we established our business in the western region 23 years we started offering private islandwide birding trips in Luquillo in 1997.  No longer a
seasonal office, Birding PUERTO RICO is offering birding trips on a daily basis in the eastern tip; as always, our service is tailored as per your needs.  
The Eastern Corridor covers Río Grande, Canóvanas, Luquillo, Fajardo, Ceiba, Naguabo, Humacao, Yabucoa, Maunabo, and Patillas.
Every year, and before the high season starts, we go birding on a daily basis looking for new routes and new
birds.  We are happy to inform that we have signed a contract to start offering birding trips and other tours at
the old Roosevelt Roads Naval Station in Ceiba as part of the efforts of the Government to redevelop the area
sponsoring local small business. Our proposal includes an environmental education component, which is also
part of our corporate social responsibility.  This option started in October 1, 2014.  A portion of your payment
will go to an
Annual Fund for our environmental education program (Proyecto Mucarito).

With very rare, but not impossible, sightings of the Puerto Rican Nightjar, Ceiba is a little jewel where you can
also find several endemic species:  our unique Yellow-shouldered Black Bird, Oriole, Tody, Woodpecker,
Flycatcher, Lizard Cuckoo, Adelaide´s Warbler, and Spindalis; plus other Antillean and Caribbean specialties,
such as the Green-throated Carib, Antillean Crested Hummingbird, Caribbean Elaenia, Caribbean Coot, and
Pearly-eyed Thrasher.
.
It was in this region, that we
found the once considered
extirpated from Puerto Rico:  
Limpkin.  After this finding, the
bird has been spotted in other
areas of the mainland.  Lately,
we have identified a group of
juvenile
Yellow-shouldered
Black Bird
, a critically
endangered endemic species.
Slow mobility birders are welcome!
If you are planning to stay in San Juan, it takes less than one our
drive to start birding.  You can skip the traffic and book one of the
small hotels and inns in the region and enjoy more hours of birding
with us without going back to the  metropolitan area, or just book
one of our
all-inclusive birding packages.  The advantage of birding
in this side of Puerto Rico is that you spend less time on the road,
henceforth, you have more time for birding.  Now, you will be able
to visit a rain forest and in less than 30 minutes, you are in a dry
coastal forest.  Need transportation? Transfers are available, please
ask for price.

Please contact us for availability and prices.
Dear Hilda, Once again thank you for a
wonderful day of birding on March 13th.  Your
knowledge, enthusiasm and integrity made the
tour well worth it.  It was a pleasure.  In
addition, thank you for the scscb link.  You and
your organization are right on target. Our very
best wishes and again thank you.
