Guatemala Birdwatching Tours


Guatemala has a wide range of indigenous bird species. Voltan Adventures is proud to offer several bird watching adventures in and around Guatemala. Our bird tour guides are highly skilled and trained in bird identification and the know the best spots to find Guatemala’s indigenous birds.

One of our favorite birds that we like to show our guests is the horned guan (Oreophasis derbianus) near one of the volcanoes at Lake Atitlan.

The best part of our birding tours is the value knowledge and birding experiences our guides have. Your guide will come with his own binoculars, take you to the choice bird spots, and assist you in locating some of Guatemala’s most exotic birds. We offer bird tours for singles, couples, and larger groups.

Lake Atitlan Birdwatching Adventure
Tzansiwan trail is a 1500m loop through shaded coffee plantation avocado, cypress and many other fruit trees at about 600m above sea level. This is our most productive birding trail and skilled birders can observe up to 70 bird species on good days.
Many migrant species such as the hummingbird, tanager, and oriole are essentially tropical having originally evolved in the neotropics and only later extending their range into North America in search of food and better nesting grounds.
