Belize & Tikal

Mar 19-30, 2023

12 days | Belize | Quest Nature Tours

Limited availability on this confirmed tour!
 
Belize is one of the most interesting tropical nature travel destinations. This tiny country harbours the great density and diversity of fauna and flora that one might expect of Central America but, what’s more, its settings are enigmatic and particularly memorable.

We’ve specially designed a route to maximize our enjoyment of various points of interest here. We’ll travel by boat up the New River to extensive wetlands with large numbers of wading and water birds such as the Jabiru stork and the Morelet’s Crocodile. We’ll have a chance to photograph orchids and other abundant flora along trailsides. We’ll watch for toucans, motmots, woodcreepers, parrots, hummingbirds, and monkeys among the ruins of Maya cities, including the fabled Tikal in nearby Guatemala. Here the dense forest conceals more than 50 impressive structures in addition to providing excellent habitat for such denizens as the flamboyant Ocellated Turkey. The pace of this tour is relaxed and affords the opportunity to fully experience our oftentimes mystical surroundings.
 
On this tour we are joined by our Belizean naturalist with deep roots in the Maya culture who will add an extra dimension to our understanding and appreciation of this region. A post-tour extension to the beautiful South Water Caye is available.
