Dominican Republic Birding Tours
Perhaps more famous for its many beach-lined resorts popular amongst vacationists, the Dominican Republic, encompassing the eastern half of the island of Hispaniola, holds arguably the best birding in the Caribbean.

Rare and exciting species abound and include the Dominican Republic’s national bird, the monotypic Palmchat, along with the Critically Endangered (IUCN) Ridgway‘s Hawk, White-fronted Quail-Dove, Bay-breasted Cuckoo, and Ashy-faced Owl, along with the charismatic Narrow-billed and Broad-billed Todies, Hispaniolan Trogon, and the taxonomically-odd White-winged and Green-tailed Warblers. Combined with the country’s easy-going style, vibrant culture, excellent food, and many scenic vistas, our well-designed itinerary gives you the best of this historic Caribbean nation, which is not to be missed.
