Guatemala: Birding the Highlands and Lake Atitlán with Hawks Aloft
January 26 – February 5, 2019

Tucked into the beautiful highlands of the Sierra Madre range in Guatemala is beautiful Lake Atitlán, whose name is derived from the Nahuatl language, meaning “at the water.” Here, at high elevations in the heart of Central America, Hawks Aloft is partnering with Holbrook Travel and Flyway Expeditions to bring our friends an experience like no other. During this 10-day journey, we’ll seek out rare and native species in this region of Guatemala, which is nestled in the middle of one of the world’s prime migratory corridors. Birders will also have the opportunity to connect with locals who care about conservation through Audubon’s bird-tourism initiative, Santiago Atitlán. A portion of the proceeds of this excursion will be donated to conservation efforts in Guatemala.
