Bird watching

With over 50% of the world’s species breeding or migrating here, Latin America is the right place to satisfy your hunger for sightings of some of the most exotic birds on the globe.

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.
