Thank you, Arturo. We had a wonderful 10-day bird watching trip with you in June of 2015. It was great to travel around Cuba (in a rental car) from Havana to the Viñales Valley to Camaguey to Cay Coco and back again, with our additions of Trinidad and Santa Clara and stops along the way.
You and your father were great at knowing where to look for the birds and finding them once we arrived. One of our favorite experiences was seeing the Bee Hummingbird in that couple’s backyard while drinking expresso. What could be finer than seeing the worlds smallest bird in the care of such knowledgeable birders and in the comfort of such nice Cubanos? But that was just one of the over 130 species we saw.
This was one of only two international trips where we left all of the arrangements for food and lodging to our guide. Thank you for taking such good care of us. The cabins on the hillside overlooking the Viñales Valley were absolutely wonderful. And, then you took us to the very restaurant that was written up in the LA Times. That was amazing! …delicious…and the amount of food was more than generous.
We will cherish our wonderful memories of seeing Cuba with you.
Susan and Gary Levenson-Palmer
