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!

Alexander Alvarado
MS, Honduras 2021

This was a great tour, even better than the itinerary described, with a few surprise activities. I really enjoyed Alexander and felt I learned a lot about the birds and Honduras while with him.
