For our Guatemala Birding Shore Excursions, Birdwatching Guatemala has selected fantastic destinations.
Destinations that meet the expectations of cruise travelers consider time and distances to enjoy bird watching activities fully.
Our departures start from Puerto Quetzal in the Pacific and Puerto Santo Tomás in the Guatemalan Caribbean, where we can organize a fantastic birding tour.
Guatemala records 749 species of birds (resident and migratory), 33 classified as regional endemic bird species located in a fantastic natural environment.
The whole year is perfect for birding in Guatemala; however, the best months are March and April.
At this time, the migratory birds are preparing to return to the northern areas with fresh and vibrant plumage.
The resident birds have also been in the breeding season, trying to attract the females with exhibitions and songs, which is an excellent opportunity to take beautiful photographs.
We have passionate and well-trained birding tour guides to help you plan a Private Shore Excursion
