Belize is such a magical place, and we want to share it with you! We’ve arranged the best local guides and tours, mixing birding trips to diverse habitats with cultural tours and boat trips. And the food is amazing! The following is a summary of the itinerary for our 7-night stay in Belize.

We will start the week by staying at the Belize Zoo Jungle Lodge, which will include a guided night visit to the Belize Zoo. The next day we will stop at the Green Hills Butterfly Ranch to enjoy the butterflies and hummingbirds, followed by an afternoon canoe trip into the Barton’s Creek Cave. We will spend the next three nights at the incomparable Black Rock Lodge, where guide Isaias Morataya will share his enthusiasm for Belize’s birds (like the Keel-billed Toucan or the Red-legged Honeycreeper) with us. Among the variety of tours offered from Black Rock will be a visit to the Xunantunich Mayan Site followed by a Belizean meal in a local restaurant.

Our next stop will be at Birds Eye View Lodge in the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, a “must-see” on any birding trip to Belize. The boat ride here could give us a view of the beautiful Agami Heron or the stately Jabiru. Our final two nights will be spent at the Lamanai Outpost Lodge. The food is fantastic and so are the guides! We’ll visit the Lamanai Mayan Site and take the River Spotlight Safari in search of wildlife… a night adventure you won’t likely forget!

Our bird list for the week should certainly top 200 species, but our focus won’t be on birds alone! We’ll connect with the friendly Belizean people that come from Mayan, Creole, and Mestizo cultures. We’ll celebrate the food, history, and nature that will make you want to come back time and time again! We hope you will join us.

This tour of Belize is much like the first, but we’ll visit the destinations in a different order. Once again we’ve arranged the best local guides and tours, mixing birding trips to diverse habitats with cultural tours and boat trips. Here is the summary of the itinerary for our 7-night stay in Belize.

We will start the week by staying Saturday night at the Birds Eye View Lodge in the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, a “must-see” on any birding trip to Belize. The boat ride here could give us a view of the beautiful Agami Heron or the stately Jabiru. The next two nights will be spent at the Lamanai Outpost Lodge. The food is fantastic and so are the guides! We’ll visit the Lamanai Mayan Site, go on a bird walk through the town of Indian Church, and take the River Spotlight Safari in search of wildlife… a night adventure you won’t likely forget!

The next night will include accommodations at the Belize Zoo Jungle Lodge and a guided night visit to the Belize Zoo to see the wild cats of Belize in action. The next day we will stop at the Green Hills Butterfly Ranch to enjoy the butterflies and hummingbirds, followed by an afternoon canoe trip into the Barton’s Creek Cave. We will spend the next three nights at the incomparable Black Rock Lodge, where guide Isaias Morataya will share his enthusiasm for Belize’s birds (like the Keel-billed Toucan or the Red-legged Honeycreeper) with us. Among the variety of tours offered from Black Rock will be a visit to the Xunantunich Mayan Site and a chocolate-making demonstration.

Our bird list for the week should certainly top 200 species, but our focus won’t be on birds alone! We’ll connect with the friendly Belizean people that come from Mayan, Creole, and Mestizo cultures. We’ll celebrate the food, history, and nature that will make you want to come back time and time again! We hope you will join us.

The price of the tour does not include the flight from the U.S. (which we will help you book), alcoholic beverages, or souvenirs, but everything else is included.
