Guatemala & Belize Birdwatching Tour

Excellent bird watching, with Mayan ruins, colourful traditional villages and stunning scenery

Guatemala & Belize Birdwatching Tour

This wonderful 16 day small group tour will give you the opportunity to visit two very different and unique Central American countries where you can do some excellent, relatively easy Neotropical bird watching, whilst exploring splendid Mayan ruins, colourful traditional villages and stunning scenery.

In both countries, amazing Mayan pyramids at sites such as Tikal, are hidden by luxuriant tropical rainforest full of wildlife and birds. Guatemala boasts of no fewer than 720 species and bird life is also abundant in Belize, with over 500 species recorded.

On this tour you will stay at wonderful jungle lodges and small hotels in great locations and will be led by the very best local guides and drivers, all of whom have lots of experience and first class training.

We are running this as a Small Group Tour from 1st – 16th March 2019.

Otherwise, we can tailor-make an itinerary similar to this to suit your individual requirements.
