To date more than 350 bird species has been recorded in Puerto Rico, including 17 endemics, more than 150 nesting birds, migratory and Caribbean specialties.

That means when you contact me and tell me the birds you want to see, my rates are just to fulfill that desire.Fully aware, expert: ready to serve you. You'll be taken through the most beautiful natural reserves and best spots I know. Always respecting basic ethical guidelines for bird watching and avoiding the least posible human impact.I'll be happy to make your birding trip, one you can not forget. « less

An afternoon, to be exact. We were on a cruise and wanted to spend our time on the island spotting some new species. Due to our time constraint, we hired Gabriel. He met us outside the cruise ship terminal and drove us around the island to help us spot some new birds. Gabriel was a professional- courteous, a good driver,... More

Four of us booked with Gabriel Lugo for 5 days birding in Puerto Rico. We were NOT disappointed -- Gabriel gave us 5 great days, locating all the endemics and a total of 110 seen and 2 heard. Not bad considering most of our North American migrants had already left. Gabriel had a perfect vehicle, reserved great overnight accomodations and... More

Gabriel Lugo is an amazing birding guide who kept us busy for the entire journey from North to South and East to West and points in between. He is a very patient and attentive guide and was proud and eager to show us as many new birds as possible. We saw 16 of the 17 endemics and 110 bird species... More

My wife and I spent three days with Gabriel and had a great time! We saw or head 99 species, including all of the Puerto Rican endemics. He was very efficient at locating the endemics and several other rare birds, including two American White Pelicans. Also, he helped find some birds that I have been trying to see in the... More

I can confidently say that Gabriel is the best birder on the whole island of Puerto Rico. His skills and expertise are superior. I did his pre-made itinerary for 4-5 days targeting all the endemics and Caribbean specialties of the island. Well, not only did we see all 17 endemics, we saw almost every Caribbean specialty as well. I've birded... More

We only had a short stay on Puerto Rico while traveling via cruise ship but Gabriel accommodated our time frame. He knows exactly where the birds are and as a result we saw many endemics and plenty of other birds in a short birding day. I thought his price was reasonable. I would most definitely recommend him as a birding... More

We went on a five night all inclusive bird watching trip to Puerto Rico (8-12 Nov 2012). Our guide was Gabriel Lugo. Our objective was to see the 17 Puerto Rican endemics and if time allowed to see some of the Caribbean endemics that we had not seen before and even see some of the introduced species. Within the first... More

I had only one day for birding by myself on a short trip to San Juan. Hiring Gabriel was an excellent experience. I saw all the diurnal endemics on the north coast, and many other life-list birds as well. The itinerary was well planned, and Gabriel was very familiar with the sites and the likely locations of all the species.... More

Gabriel Lugo is a great guide for birds in Puerto Rico. He helped us during our last two days in Puerto Rico and as a result we were able to see some birds that we would not have otherwise seen. His knowledge and passion for the birds and for photography helped us get to see and photograph some nice birds.... More

A friend and I spent 10 days with Gabriel as our birding guide, traveling all over the island. He knew exactly where to find the 17 endemics and we saw them all! He is very knowledgeable, personable and a great ear birder. He also accommodated us with other requests such as kayaking, snorkeling, bio bays, caves, etc.
