Birding Belize & Tikal, from $4,100
April 6-13, 2024

After a long winter, you decide it's time for some warmth. You embrace the heat & humiity of Belize. You begin birding shortly after clearing customs. The colors of the birds captivates you. Ocelated Turkey, Vermillion Flycatcher, and Yucutan Jay are among your favorites. Howler monkeys prove they are appropriately named. In one week, you fall just shy of 300 species of birds.

Only about the size of Massachusetts, Belize is home to a high level of biodiversity, with 600 avian species, over 140 mammalian species, and 700 species of butterfly. The world's second-largest reef lies just off its shores, and it's helpful that English is its official language.

On this trip, we'll take advantage of birding by boat, where spotting birds. We'll also walk among the ruins at Tikal, where you'll marvel at the engineering of the Mayan people. Tikal is not only about the ruins, as the area is the top eBird hotspot in Guatemala. 

After one week of birding, you can either fly home or do a trip extension to Ambergris Caye, where you'll have an opportunity to see the stunning diversity of the coral reef in Belize.
