Xukpi Tours is known for providing support to projects and initiatives related to sustainable tourism. We provide technical assistance to local community stakeholders and organizations working in protecting and conserving our country’s cultural and natural resources.
In regards to the conservation of birds we have worked with many other organizations in western Honduras to declare Copan “The Sacred Valley of the Scarlet Macaw”. With the purpose to protect the habitat for this bird, a symbol in Mayan culture, to thrive. As part of the initiative, a yearly event, Guacamaya Fest, is organized and Xukpi Tours is involved during the event in organizing birding activities and talks promoting bird knowledge and conservation for school children.
In order to advance the knowledge and appreciation of birds, specially the more than 400 species registered in the Copan Valley, we have created signage and printed material to help locals and visitors identify the different species in Copan.
Mister Yobani Peraza, founder and lead guide of Xukpi Tours, is also since 1991 a founding member of the Copan Tour Guide Association and has worked for many years in helping improve the level and expertise of its 21 active members.
