Overview

The tiny nation of Honduras is among Central America’s best kept birding and wildlife secrets. A biodiversity hotspot, it supports more than 700 bird species, playing host to over 30 separate cloud forests. Our tour spends time birding the grounds and surroundings of one of the most spectacular eco-lodges on the planet: Pico Bonito Lodge! We have time to visit a wide array of habitats including the best tracts of lowland rainforests and the nearby lush, broad-leaved forest. The bird list will be as impressive as the grounds and cuisine, including such gems as Keel-billed and Tody Motmots, Keel-billed Toucan, Lovely Cotinga, Chestnut-colored Woodpecker, Red-capped Mannikin, and too many other fantastic species to list here! We will also take time to explore the Honduran Emerald Reserve, one of just a handful of known sites for Honduras’ only endemic, the glittering little hummer after which it is named. The awesome Honduran birdlife is further augmented by ease of travel, luxury lodges, super-friendly people and fine cuisine, making this a thoroughly enjoyable birding adventure for both hardcore and casual birders alike!

2023 Tour price is an estimate and will change. Tour dates could be adjusted.

Tour Route Map Route Map Client Testimonials

Having known Chris for many years, we knew this was going to be a great tour. And it was. Chris is personable with a delightful sense of humor. One always feels comfortable around him. He takes excellent care of his birders (clients) by ensuring them what the daily plan is, where we are going and why. His birding skills are beyond excellent. He makes sure everyone sees the bird, if possible, explaining what we’re looking for and where. His ability to provide directions is a skill that goes a long way to making the bird spotting pleasurable and possible. Chris’s keen hearing ensures that birds that aren’t being seen have the potential to be called into view. Rockjumper is fortunate to employ Chris, an extraordinary individual. We look forward to traveling with Chris in the future.
