Birding Southern Belize 9-Day

Lineated Woodpeckers Belize is the best location to begin your tropical birding travels! Located only a few hours from the USA, Belize is home to over 600 species of birds. Easy trails, comfortable climate and easy access to great birding locations make Belize a very special place to learn the tropical families.

Southern Belize offers the most lush, broadleaf rainforests in the country as well as beautiful mountains rising from the coast. Although many of the birds in this region may also be found in other parts of the country, a number of them are more easily found here while a few are only found in this part of the country.

Belize is one of the most environmentally conscious countries in the Americas. Thanks in part to its small population, over 60% of Belize’s 8867 sq. miles (about the size of New Hampshire) have been protected. This protection has allowed the birds and wildlife of Belize to continue to flourish. Over 600 bird species have been recorded within Belize’s borders and along its reef!
