Spectacular volcanoes and fabulous highland lakes take centre stage in our Guatemala – Central American Specialties tour. While this region is probably best known for its shade coffee productions, local people have over time developed a strong environmental bond and an understanding of ecotourism that has resulted in much of the highland forests being protected.

Even the coffee fincas offer superb birding, and a host of specials we will search for include the gorgeous Pink-headed Warbler, fabulous Resplendent Quetzal, Blue-throated Motmot, Blue-and-white Mockingbird, Rufous-collared Thrush and Azure-rumped Tanager. A day will also be devoted to hiking to the summit of the impressive San Pedro Volcano to search for one of the world’s most prized birds, the Horned Guan. This tour offers the best of Guatemalan birding with comfortable lodges and fabulous scenery throughout!
