Adventures to have and places to see

Brown pelican

Brown pelican
Brown pelicans are very common in the Caribbean. You can see them almost everywhere along the beaches. They are spectacular at fishing! They will spot a fish from high in the sky, then bank sharply and crash into the water to catch it.

Sightings:

Brown Pelican Cayo Coco 2020

29 November 2020

At the far east part of the beach, we found a tree that was the roosting spot for quite a few pelicans.

Brown Pelican Jibacoa 2020

16 January 2020

Jibacoa had no lack of pelicans. It was fun watching them dive for fish. It’s really neat to see them flying in pairs.

Brown Pelican 2019

22 February 2019

While at Memories Caribe we got lots of great pelican pictures.

Brown Pelican Varadero 2018

15 February 2018

Varadero is much more populated than other resorts in Cuba, so we didn’t see as many pelicans.

Brown Pelican Cayo Santa Maria 2017

24 January 2017

We enjoyed watching these pelicans fish at Cayo Santa Maria. They spot their prey and crash into the water like a dive bomber!
