Belize & Tikal

Belize is one of the very best tropical nature spots in Central America. Among our many activities in this tiny country, we’ll spend four nights in our lodge nestled in the dense rainforest above the Macal River in the Maya Mountains. Here we’ll find a wide diversity of flora and fauna including over 200 species of birds. This is one of the few places in Central America where you can observe three species of toucan in one morning. We have many opportunities to explore; travelling by boat up the New River to extensive wetlands with their staggering numbers of water birds, troops of Black Howler Monkeys, and large Morelet’s Crocodiles and walking along cool pine forest trails. We’ll visit ancient Mayan cities, including the fabled Tikal in nearby Guatemala. Here the dense rainforest not only provides excellent habitat for monkeys, parrots, motmots, toucans, woodpeckers and the flamboyant Ocellated Turkey, but also conceals more than 50 impressive Mayan structures. During our tour, we’ll also visit the Crooked Tree Bird Sanctuary, a known breeding site of the Jabiru stork. On this tour we are joined by our highly experienced Belizean naturalist with roots in the Mayan culture who adds an extra dimension to our understanding and appreciation of this region.
