Our half day birding trip with Paulino was the highlight of our trip! Paulino is so knowledgable, helpful and patient. From the moment we met him it was clear he put a great deal of effort into making it the best possible experience. He had binoculars for all of us, a list of possible birds, bird books and a fabulous scope that he set up for us to get a really good look at the bird in our sights. He took us to a variety of settings so we could see many different bird species - in fact, we recorded 63 species in our 4 hours together. Incredible! I can't wait to go back to Cuba to do the inland excursion. Thank you Paulino!

Wow! Merci Paulino, pour cette expérience ornithologique hors du commun et au delà de nos attentes. N'hésitez pas à réserver cette excursion très professionnelle et intime. Biologiste et passionné, Paulino vous surprendra à appeler et attirer ceux-ci dans différents milieu. Nous avons vu un énorme diversité d'oiseaux, dans les mangroves, marais et forêts. À refaire!! Il a toujours sa Ford 1955 et nous avons fait une demi journée le matin pour 80$ par personne. C'était suffisant pour nous car il fait très chaud en pm.

Merci pour ce pur bonheur de voir cette bel diversité d'oiseaux de Cuba!!

Chantal et Patrick

My husband and I booked a 4-hour birding tour with Paulino during our stay at Hotel Playa Paraiso in Cayo Coco. This was my absolute highlight of our trip and days later I am still smiling thinking about the experience. Paulino's knowledge and expertise of birds in the region (endemic and non-endemic) far exceeded my expectations. We saw and heard a significant number of bird species in various regions on the island, and I got many lifers. I mentioned a few target species to Paulino and he sure did deliver. My husband is not much of a birder but wanted to accompany me, and he thoroughly enjoyed traveling in Paulino's classic car and asking questions about the Cuban people- we both learned a lot about the flora and fauna of the island and a few interesting things about the people of Cuba. My only regret is that I did not reserve more time, although we covered a LOT of ground in our short 4 hours, we had such a great time I wish we could have birded longer. We both felt very safe, and as a female birder, I would feel very safe traveling alone with Paulino- he is very kind and respectful. I would travel back to the area just to do another birding tour with him.

My wife, son and I joined Paulino for a day of birding in the Cayo Coco/Moron region of Cuba on March 12, 2022. Having been to Cuba a couple of times before, including one trip that was a dedicated bird trip, I had already seen a lot of the Cuban endemics but was anxious to see them again, and to find Cuban Gnatcatcher - a life bird for me. Paulino made the gnatcatcher priority #1 and within an hour of meeting him I was looking at my first Cuban Gnatcatcher ever! The day was filled with great sightings of herons, ibis, spoonbills, Cuban Tody, Cuban Trogon, Cuban Pygmy-owl, Cuban Emerald, the Cuban race of Eastern Meadowlark...all in all we saw 70 species while having time to stop for a great mid-day meal. Paulino is extremely knowledgeable, well-prepared and accommodating. His English is really good (thankfully, because my Spanish is really bad!) Do not hesitate to book a full or half-day with Paulino. You will be very glad that you did.

It was a delight to once again meet Paulino to explore the birding world of Cayo Coco (last time was 15 years ago!). He met us at the resort equipped with scope and Vortex binos for those without them, and we spent an enjoyable half day tracking down most of the birds that we wanted to see. His 1955 Belair can comfortably hold 5 visitors with backpacks etc. The easiest way to connect with him is through Watsapp. Given the times, we all wore masks and drove with the windows open, so everyone felt comfortably safe. Paulino is very personable, and speaks English well so we enjoyed his company as much as we enjoyed the exploring.

Our third outing with Paulino in the last two years and he never fails to deliver. We spent 4 hours on Cayo Coco and adjoining islands and saw 37 different birds, including several endemic to Cuba. Pauline is so knowledgeable about birds and a master at locating them. A thoroughly enjoyable morning! We'll be back!

За полдня Паулино показал нам столько разных видов птиц, сколько мы бы сами не нашли и за неделю. Однозначно стоит посетить эту экскурсию всем, кто увлекается фотографией природы. Но если у вас нет подходящей камеры - все равно будет интересно. Паулино предоставляет бинокли и даже телескоп, в который можно наблюдать например огромные стаи фламинго в нескольких километрах от берега. Бронировали экскурсию через whatsapp, договорились быстро на удобный день.

My wife and I did a half day with Paulino. First thing he asked was "What do you want to see" Flamingos. He took us up the island and lo and behold, hundreds of them. This area was good for water birds. Next we go the other way and go to where they have the cave parties and many song birds. Enjoyed this excursion very much. I booked him online from home.

I adore birds and felt it fitting to make arrangements with a person that had the expertise and similar passion to share his knowledge while I vacationed in Cayo coco. Paulino Lopez was very easy to connect with through email and It is how I communicated to him our time frame of visit to Cuba and expressed my desire to do both full day and half day birding tours. I'm glad to have the foresight to pre arrange in advance as we had committed to dates of birding and he did not fail to promptly pick us up at our resort as originally planned. My husband joined us on the full day excursion and he may not be as devoted to birdwatching as I am, however, he took away the whole experience of riding shot gun in a refurbished 1955 chevy bel air having casual conversation with Paulino and captured many great photos of birds we did encounter. I highly recommend the full day birdwatching tour as it's a richer experience traveling the causeway to Cuba where Paulino takes you off the beaten path to search for the endemic Cuban birds that would never be found on resort. Paulino birds by ear and would play back the particular bird he hears song to flush it into visability for us to witness. He uses a laser light to direct each passenger a guarantee to view each target bird. He trys very hard to find the prize birds to enrich the experience even when the bird might be uncooperative to show itself. Thus when Paulino says please don't slam the door of his car, it's not because he is protective of his car doors.....but his interest to not scare off the bird from view. Favorite bird sighted on the full day tour were purple gallinule, great lizard cuckoo,Cuban pygmy owl,Cuban trogon, Cuban green woodpecker Cuban tody, of course many more birds were seen but these were our personal favorites. The full day includes a stop for lunch where Paulino helps to order a delicious Cuban meal for all riders and have easy conversation while eating. We agreed to have another person tour with us as more like minded people can enrich the birding experience. I also went the half day tour birdwatching with Paullino with two separate other interested tourists and quite enjoyed this trip out too, as we found other target birds such as mangrove cuckoo, oriented warbler, Cuban gnatcatcher, and clapper rail. It happened to be a windy day so more difficult to locate birds but still able to find some gems. I highly recommend if you have the chance to seek the assistance of Paulino to capture the best possible bird sightings.

We enjoyed a day trip with Paulino and were amazed at the variety and quantity of birds he was able to find. We saw the top two on my wish list; the beautiful, little Cuban Today and the Cuban Trogon, Cuba's national bird. Riding in Paulino's 1955 Chevy was a treat. Paulino was very knowledgeable and professional. Would highly recommend.
