Latin America isn’t the place to spot large mammals: you aren’t going to find the equivalent of South Africa’s Big Five here - though jaguar or puma sighting would be the highlight of any wildlife lover’s visit.
Where the continent comes into its own however is with its birdlife. Over 50% of the world’s species breed or migrate here. The vast range of environments, landscapes and climates, from tropical jungles to sun-scarred deserts and mountains groaning with ice; both remote and urban; cultivated and pristine, support birds in their hundreds and thousands.
You will see them on all of our holidays, perched on a windowsill, a craggy cliff, a ruined temple. But for those of you who have a general interest in identifying birds, or are well-informed, serious twitchers, or are wildlife photography enthusiasts, we have designed a number of holidays with qualified naturalist guides which will satisfy your hunger for sightings of some of the most exotic, winged creatures on the globe.
