Puerto Rico November 6-13, 2007

  • For us, the trip was an unqualified success – we had 33 life birds and saw all endemics except for the critically-endangered Puerto Rican Parrot. We also saw many of the regional specialties and potential “splits”....Gary and Marlene Babic report.

Eastern Caribbean Cruise 17-23 Dec. 2006

  • My wife and I plus 3 of my sons and one daughter-in-law went on our first cruise Sunday 23 Dec. from Miami with Norwegian Cruise Line. We really looked forward to visit Puerto Rico, Antigua, St.Thomas and Bahamas   My son, Erlen, and I birded every island. Jan Landsverk reports.

Southern Caribbean cruise and Puerto Rico 18-26 February 2002

  • Cindy and I recently returned from a southern Caribbean cruise and four extra days in Puerto Rico.  The cruise originated in San Juan made stops at Aruba, Venezuela, Grenada, Dominica, and St. Thomas.  We birded at every location and made arrangements for guides or transportation on three stops.  Below is a brief description of our activities and a few of the highlights...Mark Lockwood reports.

Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic 1st June to 13th June 1998

  • This report covers a visit to the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Having neglected the West Indies despite the availability of such inexpensive holidays a long time, I decided, after five trips to Africa, to travel to the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. The aim of our trip to the West Indies was to get an introduction to the Caribbean birdlife and to see a good variety of the single island endemics.
