With 308 species of resident and migratory birds, the Chaa Creek Nature Reserve offers some of the best bird watching in Belize.
Our Early Morning Bird Watching tour will take you around our 365 private acre nature reserve where professional naturalist guides, who are trained and knowledgeable birders, will assist you in spotting many of the tropical avian species that abound in western Belize.
The Keel-billed Toucan, Blue-crowned Mot-Mot, Violaceous Trogan, Grey-necked Wood-Rail, Collared Forest Falcon, and a host of parrot species are just a few of the exotic birds awaiting you.
Daily guided birding tours are also offered to different nature reserves around the Cayo District.
Laguna Aguacate, a freshwater lagoon in the Spanish Lookout area, is home to a wide variety of water birds. The surrounding farmlands provide excellent habitat for several species of raptors.
Other great locations include the Blue Hole National Park, Mt. Pine Ridge and Chiquibul Forest Reserves, Black Rock Canyon, and the Caracol Archaelogy Reserve.
