Being that this birding tour is two days longer than our six days birding vacation of eastern Jamaica, its participants will have more time in each location or habitat visited.  Similar to our other birding vacations, this tour is organized to use more accommodation centers, in order to have our birders staying closer to the habitats which will be visited.  This idea decreases the driving time between accommodation sites and habitats, which enables proper arrival time in these habitats and decreases the possibilities of missing important target species.  This will also give a daily ease even more time is needed to be spent in the fields.  With this level of ease and comfort, this tour guarantees the viewing of Jamaica's twenty nine (29) endemic species, while birding at an easy pace during your eight (8) days of birding across Jamaica!
