Guatemala Birds, Nature & Culture

Guatemala is a fantastic destination for birding with over 720 species recorded, 35 of them being regional specialities, such as their national bird, the stunning resplendent quetzal, as well as the Azure-Rumped Tanager, Horned Guan, Pink-Headed Warbler, Blue-Tailed Hummingbird and White-Breasted Hawk.

The best places to find these birds are locations with strong cultural connections, where in addition to observing birds, you will have the opportunity to interact with Mayan cultures, visiting their marketplaces and ancient sites and getting to know their habits.

In addition, Guatemala possesses 19 ecosystems, 300 microclimates, over 37 volcanoes, rivers, lakes and beaches that together with the ethnic culture and diversity, make this a mystical destination full of magic and adventure.
