We are the Belize Experts – Leading tours in Belize since 1993!
Belize has quickly become a popular eco-tourism destination due to the abundance of birds –over 500 species!– and other wildlife as well as its beautiful scenery and diversity of habitat. The rainforest is only half of what Belize has to offer. Along its coast is the secong longest barrier reef in the world. Over 170 miles long, this incredible tropical reef offers some of the best snorkeling in the world! Belize is one of the most environmentally conscious countries in the Americas.
Belizeans are proud of their wildlife and forests, and with a population of less than 300,000 they have been able to create and maintain many “greenways” or wildlife corridors, allowing for freedom of wildlife movement between habitats. These wildlife corridors are necessary for sustaining animal populations through genetic diversity as well as for habitat protection.
Along with the popularity of standard tourism in Belize for snorkeling and “come see the rainforest” style trips, many tour companies have now added the word “birding” into their literature. However, most of these companies have no understanding as to what it takes to offer a quality birding experience!
But we know and understand the needs and desires of birders! So let Wildside arrange your custom tour or join one of our extraordinary scheduled trips designed with you in mind… the birder and nature enthusiast.
Simply wonderful to travel with Wildside Tours! Nowhere could you get a better leaders than Glenn! So much fun and very productive!
