Our short four day extension to Guatemala's eaterm slope puts us in position to find some very tricky and range restricted specials of the dry Motagua Valley as well as the pristine cloud forest of Biotopo Quetzal and Mayan town of Coban. A host of interesting, extraordinarily beautiful and specialist species await.
