Wildlife Holidays in Guatemala
The small Central American country of Guatemala nestles between Mexico, Belize, Honduras and El Salvador and is blessed with magnificent scenery, wildlife and culture. It is a place in which breathtaking Mayan ruins rise from pristine rainforests inhabited by myriad colourful birds.
Although the Spanish arrived in the 1500s and displaced the indigenous Mayan people, this land still feels like their place: the place of the Maya. Their influence is found in the world-famous remains of Mayan cities and religious sites, in the country’s numerous languages and dialects, and in Guatemala’s delicious cuisine!
Our Specialist Recommends
‘Even the most well-travelled naturalist cannot fail to be impressed by Guatemala’s superb avifauna. Its combination of world-famous archaeological sites, of which Tikal is the most complete, and superb birding, makes this an unusual and rewarding destination. We offer one holiday based entirely in Guatemala, and a second holiday which includes Belize as well.’ - Andy Tucker
