A Sample Itinerary

You are invited to join Audubon South Carolina for a special guided trip to Belize. Come and be immersed in the natural beauty, cultural history, and stunning birdlife of Belize and learn about the vital connection between the wintering birds of Belize and the nesting birds of North America's East Coast states.

Day One:
Arrive Belize City and transfer to Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary for a Welcome Dinner, overnight and breakfast. (The Jabiru Stork is Crooked Tree’s most famous resident.)

Day Two:
Dawn ‘Birding-by-Boat’ cruise at Crooked Tree with an expert guide taking you close to shore to view & photograph exotic birds hunting and fishing. After lunch, a personal introduction to Belize conservation and a walking tour of the Sanctuary. (Lunch, dinner and overnight)

Day Three:
After breakfast we will visit Lamanai Archeological site via a scenic boat ride, having the chance to explore the ruins and look for sitting birds and Howler monkeys, followed by lunch and travel to the Four-Star San Ignacio Resort for dinner, overnight and breakfast.
