We had planned a 2 week trip to Cuba late February 2014. While making the itinerary it turned out we had some days left and decided to spend these on an extra trip to Jamaica. A Birdwatchers guide to Cuba, Jamaica etc. mentioned that all 29 endemics should be possible to see in just a couple of days so we booked a long weekend from Cuba arriving Friday afternoon and leaving Monday afternoon.
We decided Cuba would be a nice escape of European winter with a good number of endemics, beaches and snorkeling. And of course to experience the unique culture that still exists in present day Cuba; colorful houses and empty roads with a nice selection of ancient cars and horse carts.
