At the crossroads of the Americas, Honduras offers an amazing array of habitats, including Caribbean coastline, mangrove swamps, lowland dry forests and mountainous cloud forest. As a result, the variety of bird species is astonishing. On this tour, we visit the mountains of western Honduras near the capital city of Tegucigalpas, the ancient Maya city of Copan, the central Blue Mountains and world famous Pico Bonito Lodge along the Caribbean in the east. The birding is extraordinary and the scenery is no less spectacular.
