Bird watching in the Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is the most interesting country for birding in the Caribbean and offers more than 300 different bird species to observe. There is no other country in the Caribbean with that density of endemic and migratory birds from North America. Expect a lot of colorful and exotic birds during your visit to the Dominican Republic.
Whether you are an ambitious birder to complete your lists or just an enthusiastic bird watcher who brings the binoculars incidentally to your vacations: You will see a lot of the beautiful island, as the Dominican Republic offers a habitat for many different bird species all over the country.
For me, ‘all the nice side effects’ make you get to introduce the country from a different perspective, that you would never see within an All-Inclusive-Resort. In the Dominican Republic, you can go birding in many different regions of the country and should be prepared with different clothing and equipment.
If planned correctly, you will see almost every major birdwatching region in less than two weeks. For example: Imagine observing American Flamingos by boat on a lake or in more than 8,500 feet (2,600 meters) in the highest mountain area of the Caribbean. You can observe 32 endemic birds in the Dominican Republic. Sounds interesting to you?
The Dominican Republic is the ideal tourism destination for you if you want to visit the best country for bird watching in the Caribbean and like to spend the majority of your vacations outdoor.
