EXOTIC BIRDING

AN INTIMATE BIRDING EXPERIENCE

EXOTICA BIRDING TOURS

Our rainforest is ideally situated for birding. We are nestled between the Cockscomb Jaguar Reserve and Red Bank, two of the top best-known birding destinations in Belize, and is halfway between the Mayan Mountains and the ocean, allowing for an overlap of mountain and seaside species. We like to joke that our organic fruit farm is the biggest bird feeder in Belize! We promise an intimate birding experience on our private estate for small groups of 2 to 10 people, with our highly knowledgeable guide. At various times of the year, it is estimated that some 250 species of exotic birds visit our property. They love the nearby fruit farm. The abundant food source also helps explain the sheer number and variety of birds. In fact, some of our best bird sightings are where the fruit farm gives way to the rainforest. Part of the reason for so many types of birds is our location—birds visit us from both the coastal areas as well as from the Mayan Mountains. Our rainforest also makes an excellent stop for long-range migratory birds.

Christian Bech - Our Birder-in-Chief

Christian is one of the foremost and best-known birders in Southern Belize, with 17 years experience in birding. He brings passion and extensive knowledge to his activities as a birder, naturalist and professional guide. He is equally passionate about accumulating knowledge about birds as he is about sharing it with others. This passion will help provide a memorable experience with Exotica. He also shares his passion with other birders and guides at Exotica, whom he trains. We welcome birding guests to make eBird lists at Exotica, contributing to the growing list of birds spotted; Christian is happy to assist you with this as well. Our standard tour is 90 minutes. We highly recommend starting at 6.30 am, to see the most birds.
