Private Wildlife and Bird Photography Tours in Guatemala

CAYAYA BIRDING organizes private bird photography tours to hand-picked sites in Guatemala. Our bird photography sites provide opportunities to photograph regional endemic birds of northern Central America as well as widespread Neotropical birds, Nearctic-Neotropical migratory birds, and other wildlife. Feeding stations are available at some sites, allowing close-range photography, but many bird species require some walking effort for photography. Get in touch with us for organizing your wildlife and bird photography expedition in Guatemala.

What bird photographers say about CAYAYA BIRDING

June 2018, 1-week photography tour in the Guatemalan highlands

"Just had my second, brilliant trip with Knut and CAYAYA BIRDING. Honestly, can't think of how it could have been improved on. Knut and Claudia think of every single detail to make sure that everything goes smoothly and that, as a guest, you have the best possible birding experience. Knut is great company and is deeply knowledgeable. We found all the birds we went looking for, and I was lucky enough to get good chances for photos of each species. Spent part of our time together discussing our next trip together ... can't wait. Really recommend CAYAYA BIRDING, with no hesitation whatsoever ... wonderful way to experience a great birding country."
Kevin Bartlett, Buenos Aires, Argentina. onwildground.com/

May 2017, 7-day bird photography trip
"I recommend CAYAYA BIRDING highly for either birders or photographers."
Allan Obertreiber, Texas, USA.

January 2017, 8-day bird photography trip
"Absolutely every detail was beautifully planned and managed by Claudia and Knut...nothing left to chance. Knut was our guide to three different locations and all were terrific. We are photographers rather than twitchers and we left Guatemala with great images of some key birds: Pink-headed Warbler, Orange-breasted Falcon, Ocellated Turkey, plus dozens of other great birds, including three species of motmot and four trogons. Knut is not only immensely knowledgeable, flexible and patient; he is also great company: plenty of laughs along with the birds. For anyone planning a birding trip, or more general nature-oriented trip to Guatemala, there really is no need to look further than CAYAYA BIRDING. Decades of hard work and commitment have made them the absolute leaders for this country."
, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

November 2015, 6-day target bird photography trip
"I highly recommend Knut as a guide. His ability to spot birds I couldn't see was uncanny. They went above and beyond to get my luggage to me when it missed my flight and arrived later."
David McDonald, Houston, Texas, USA.

March 2011, 21-days tailor-made tour focused on bird photography
"Very recommendable for touring Guatemala!"
Peter Wächtershäuser, Bad Homburg, Germany. www.naturlichter.de
