Honduras Birding Highlights Tour

Honduras Birding Highlights Tour

per person

This 14-day Honduras’ Birding Highlights Tour was elaborated for the more avid birders. We will have time to learn about culture, history, and nature in general, but the focus is clearly on seeing a variety of great Honduran bird species. Also, though you don’t have to be an athlete, the trip does require a general level of fitness, as some of the walks can be a bit more strenuous, especially in La Tigra and Celaque. The trails are not difficult, and no special experience is necessary, but you should be able to walk for a couple of hours – of course at a slow pace and with many stops as we will be birding all along the way.
