• Tour package includes all lodging, meals* and access fees
to reserves, parks and other birding sites

Premier Bird Guides: All of our tours use the services on
an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on
birding in this area. The Guatemala trips have one of two
excellent local guides: Ana Paula Oxom or Josué de León
Lux.  They often worked together in Tarrales.

Top-Rated Preparation Services: We support your
preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds
you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic
details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details and
more), information on entry into Guatemala and information
on travel health issues, packing information and more. Most
of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is
the best they have ever seen.

Transport and Airport Transfers:  
- Local ground transport is included. This includes a large
transport van for most of the trip.  
- We also have a driver or guide pick you up at the airport
upon arrival, and transfers for internal flights are included,
and we arrange for a transfer back to the airport at the end
of the trip.  

Flight Costs:  Not Included:
- International flight costs are not included.
- If you decide to do the Tikal extension, you will also need
to add the price of the the internal flight to Santa Elena
(near Tikal).  This flight can be had from $200 USD (£150
GBP) to $300 USD (£225 GBP). The best deals are often
available by booking with your international flight on
Avianca. If we book the internal flights, we will bill you the
actual costs.

Acre for Bird Conservation: We support bird conservation,
saving several acres for bird conservation for every
booking.  For every tour participant, we provide support for
bird conservation by the acre.  Acres are sometimes
purchased, but we often support conservation easements
through a variety of reputable conservation partners, such
as the Rainforest Trust and the World Land Trust.  We have
protected over 70,000 acres over the last three years.

*Pricing Notes and More Details:  
• US Dollar Pricing: The US Dollar has stayed fairly stable
against the Quetzal (the local currency in Guatemala) over
the last four years. We anticipate there will be no price
changes against the fixed US Dollar cost of the trip.
• Pricing in British Pounds: The GBP price indicated
above is based on the June 30, 2016 exchange rate of 0.76
GBP per US Dollar. This was shortly after the UK voted to
leave the EU.  We will hope the British Pound strengthens
against the US Dollar in the months ahead.  The trip price is
fixed in US Dollars, and the final charges for the trip will be
based upon the actual exchange rates we pay. Though we
work to minimize bank charges with banking in Canada and
in the United Kingdom, banks do often charge about 1.5% to
2% for making the exchange.
• Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers
for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the
United Kingdom and/or Canada.
• Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per
day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day does
include lunch and supper, as most flights arrive at about mid-
day. The departure day includes only breakfast, as most
flights leave in the morning.
• Note on Beverage Inclusion: Most of our meals are
provided by the lodges, and we follow their practices in
providing beverages at meal time. Most lodge-provided
breakfasts include a choice of coffee, tea and/or juice, and
most box lunches include either bottled water or juice. Other
beverages served at supper are your choice and are an
additional expense which you pay to the restaurant directly.
We provide water at the table for supper. We also provide
bottled water during the birding day.  

Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:

Single Room Supplement:
  • $160 USD (or £120 GBP*) is the price we charge for
    the additional cost of anyone not sharing a room with
    another birder (and/or a spouse).
  • The single supplement on the extension is $60 USD
    45 GBP).
  • If you want a single room, please let us know.
