CAYAYA BIRDING tours are designed for birders. Follow the links on the right
to see some itinerary examples. All tours are customizable and we also organize
your tour tailored according to your target species.
We operate exclusively small group bird watching tours to guarantee the best possible birding conditions, to keep our impact on the natural environment as low as possible, and to ensure personalized service. Tours can be led in English, German or Spanish.
We organize all ground travel using safe minibuses and, where necessary, 4-wheel-drive-vehicles. We arrange strategic rest stops during travel to break up the trips and give you the optimal, diverse birding experience. We stay primarily in beautiful and peaceful eco-lodges and hotels, where you see birds even during your rest. Vegetarian meals are always made available upon request.
CAYAYA BIRDING tour leaders are active ornithologists and conservationists, who have been conducting intensive field research in Guatemala for more than 10 years. Since they reside in Guatemala, they have the opportunity to keep in close contact with the indigenous communities which we will visit and maintain positive relations. When you come and travel with us you will enjoy an unforgettable birding experience flavored with the cultural vibrancy of the ancient and present-day Maya. See comments from our customers.
