“Treasures of the Sky” – Birding in Southern Belize!


Birding Hotspots In Belize

Customize a birding vacation in Belize! Our Concierge will work with you to create your Birding Adventure

Placencia’s location is ideally suited for daily access to a variety of birding hotspots endorsed by the Belize Audubon Society, for viewing of birds from forest species to pine woodland and savanna species, restricted to riverine areas, and birds associated with higher elevations. You can include the wetlands of Aguacaliente, Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, Shrimp Farms and Lagoon Waders (All Season). The unmistakable Scarlet Macaw flocks in the small Maya Village of Red Bank may be substituted or added, December to March only, for Waders.

Belize is home to over 600 bird species, many unique to this country. Your tour guide is a professionally licensed tour guide in Belize, with a strong sense of Maya tradition and heritage, carried down from his ancestors. So bring a camera and a keen eye to witness these stunning beauties like never before, Belize’s birds are calling you…..

(Footnote: Although we would love to have you as our guest for all of your lunches and dinners, which is your choice, if you prefer (just let us know), we have intentionally not included some lunches and dinners in our packages because you may miss the opportunity to take advantage of our Premier Location, of enjoying the traditional fishing Village of Placencia. We encourage you to take time to enjoy these lovely people, visit their shops, eat at their restaurants and experience the culture of Belize. We are just a ten minute beach walk or a five minute bike, kayak or golf cart ride away. It’s a benefit of being a guest of Chabil Mar and one we believe you will remember for your lifetime!)
