For the bird-watcher, Jamaica has an awful lot to offer!

Jamaica has the highest concentration of endemic bird species of all the Caribbean Islands…

• 28 Endemics
• 19 Endemic Sub-species.
• 18 Caribbean Endemic species / sub-species.

45 of these (21 Endemics) (13 Endemic Sub-species) and (11 Caribbean Endemics) have been recorded on the Green Castle Estate alone.

In addition to these, Jamaica also hosts a large amount of Wintering North American Birds, 24 species of North American Wood Warblers for example.

Jamaica is the 3rd largest of all the Caribbean Islands, yet, it is still reasonably small by UK standards, from East to West….146 miles and from North to South at its widest point is 51 miles.

Located on the Eastern side of the Island, this is lush green mountainous country with many habitats and offering opportunity to see all the endemics at an easy going pace with leisurely birding. You can bird watch locally and travel to other areas, no more than 2 hours drive away to catch up with specific species which are more localised.
