    Excellent birding trip for the Horned Guan

    Aron and Edgar took me on a 2 day tour to Lake Atitlan and Volcan San Pedro. It was a fantastic trip – we saw tons of birds, the food was great, and the accommodation was great (Posada Santiago).Most importantly we saw the horned guan after a 4 hour hike! I very much appreciated Aron changing the itinerary where requested to see specific birds of interest that I hadn’t mentioned beforehand. All round a great trip.
