independent American birdeing travel to Cuba (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
I know bird tours are taking Americans to Cuba now under some sort of exemption. Have any independent American birders done this (legally) since the change in relations?

I was just in Cuba recently. There has been no change in regulations. The only Americans I saw was one group on a government approved cultural tour with a guide. Perhaps a birding group could get permission to go but not just for tourism.
There have been substantial changes in the embargo. VENT is doing 3 bird tours this year and 3 in 2017 (for Americans), apparently under the "Cultural exchange" part of the new rules. But as I am in Florida it probably pays to wait for the airline part of the change to kick in, rather than do the old Cancun routing.
