Join us on an adventure of a lifetime, as we explore the beauty of Belize! We’ve arranged the best local guides and tours, mixing birding trips to diverse habitats with cultural tours and boat trips. All the planning is done for you, and the small group size means you’ll get personal service and attention. The following is a summary of our itinerary during our 8-night stay in Belize.

We will start the week by staying Friday night 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. The boat ride here could give us a view of the beautiful Agami Heron or the playful Jacana. Our final three nights will be spent at La Milpa Lodge and Research Center. Property manager Vladimir Rodriguez is one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met, plus he’s one of the most respected birders in Belize. He will take us to the nearby Mayan site that has not yet been excavated for a history and birding tour. We’ll bird the trails of the Rio Bravo Conservation Area with optional night outings as well. But one of the coolest parts of La Milpa is that you can walk out the door of your cabana to see Royal Flycatchers, Oscellated Turkeys, and at least five species of hummingbirds!

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.
