    Cuba endemics from 18/02/24 to 01/03/24

    Better take a flight from Madrid to Havana or Santiago from Madrid. Iberia, Cubana de aviación and maybe other low cost companies may fly there or to Varadero. But I need to check if I may have any problem visiting Cuba first and then Puerto Rico as it is a USA associated free state.

    Cuba endemics from 18/02/24 to 01/03/24

    Yes, I could be interested in a tour to Cuba and Puerto Rico to search for endemic families and species. No direct flights between both countries but possible through a third country. Orestes Martínez (Chino de zapata) could be a good option for Cuba. Guides also availables in Puerto Rico.
