Tracking feathered dreams

If you like birdwatching, let us share some time enjoying what we most like to do, when going anywhere. This activity is thought out to dedicate time and effort mainly to bird watching, likewise, it works perfectly if you want to combine it with the visit to any destination of the region.

Petén has a record of 450 species, acoording to The Audobon's Society database, e-bird. com. Such amount including migratory and local birds.
Once in Petén, is relatively easy to go finding hotspots frecuented by local and foreigner birdwatchers who continuosly update sighting data using diferent online databases.

As in any of my tours, specially birdwatching, we most be ready to find something new and unknown.


Departing early in the morning from your hotel in Flores or the airport of Flores to hotspots around the lake Petén Itza or sorrounding areas.

We use to move by car, at least, into two diferent hotspots, along the tour.

As part of the Audobon's Society data base e-bird. com, I upload my checklist with the e-bird app if you prefer I can bring printed lists or let me know if you are bringing your owns.

Listing the species we got to see in the field or as you most like to work the sightings.

Ending the activity up at the hotel in Flores or the airport.
