Wildlife tours in Guatemalatake you to the heart of the ancient Mayan world and a natural Central American landscape unchanged in centuries. Guatemala has been recognised as one of the 19 most biologically diverse countries on the planet. It is one of a group of nations that hold about 70% of the planet’s biodiversity, even though they form less than 13% of the Earth’s surface.
Guatemala has more than 10,300 plant species (15% endemic to the country), about 650 fishes, more than 190 mammals, 200 reptiles and amphibians and approximately 720 different kinds of birds. Many of these amazing creatures can be seen on wildlife holidays that can be arranged with the expert local tour operators found on Blue Sky Wildlife.
If you are a bird enthusiast you can choose to go birding among the Mayan ruins, or through the famous coffee plantations. Even a day trip in bustling Guatemala City will reveal some of the 170 resident and migratory avian species that find shelter in its parks and streets. And, of course, no trip to Guatemala would be complete without a sighting of the country’s national bird, The Resplendent Quetzel!
A general wildlife tour in Guatemala can bring into contact with some fascinating mammal species, too, such as Giant Anteaters, armadillos and a number of different opossums.
