We have a great new operator in Guatemala that now gives us access to nice birding lodges and excellent local guides. Week-long and 10-day options let you explore montane cloud-forest, tropical dry forest, tropical deciduous forest, oak pine woodland, and if you like, historic Antigua and famous markets. Hikers can enjoy a trek for the mythical Horned Guan and all can enjoy the first startling view of a Pink Warbler. Maya ruins? Combine famed Tikal with nearby Guacamayas Biological Station for a super week of tropical birding.

An Independent Birding Venture (IBV) to Guatemala is like a “mini-tour” — guides are available during your stay at delightful, small eco-lodges. With Caligo Ventures’ IBVs, you pick the start date, the length, and the activity level. Designed for two or more people, travel with that special someone, a family member, or a group of friends. IBVs are great for photographers and for couples or friends with varied interests in birding.

Caligo makes it easy! Call a travel planner today to design your Guatemala IBV.
