Belize/ Honduras with Naturalist Journeys
Two Great Eco-lodges: Chan Chich (Belize) & Pico Bonito (Honduras) with the Casa de San Pedro Hosted by Patrick Dome and Karl Schmitt January 15-24, 2017
In yet another edition of our annual tours to other great nature lodges, January 2017 will offer a spectacular and unique tour opportunity:
Two top tier Nature Lodges and Two Countries.
In a tour that cannot be replicated elsewhere we will first fly to Belize to fly out to Chan Chich, a remote nature lodge (for 5 nights) famous for its luxury, remoteness, and native jungle teeming with wildlife. Then we fly (on a private charter flight - arranged specifically for this tour in order to avoid a wasted overnight trip back to Belize City) to Honduras to Pico Bonito, another world famous nature lodge (for 4 more nights) for more adventures in birding, and opportunities for beach time and snorkeling on pristine reefs.
A 10 day trip with your hosts from Casa de San Pedro, Karl and Patrick, to experience some of the best nature travel, luxurious lodges with great amenities, and plentiful wildlife! Start dreaming of warm January weather, and incredible hospitality. We hope you can join us for this stunning adventure with nature.
The Detailed Itinerary and Details Here!
In early August our lodges in the northern part of Belize sustained the high winds and intense rains of Hurricane Earl, which made a path west after landfall near Belize City on August 4. While our friends and colleagues there are safe and lodges okay, we know there may be needs in the surrounding villages due to storm damage and flooding. You may want to check in with Peg Abbott at Naturalist Journeys to see if she has suggestions on ways that you can lend your support to those who were impacted by the storm.
Hummingbird Banding at the Casa wraps up with a final session on Friday October 7 - 4 to 6 pm. Then the banding team gets to take the winter off as the hummers will have zoomed off to their winter homes in the far South. Look for Hummingbird banding to resume again for the Spring Migration starting in late March (also on Friday afternoons).
Sheri Williamson and Tom Woods from the Southeastern Arizona Bird Observatory (www.sabo.org) are again planning to do Hummingbird Banding during most of the summer months and into September and October. (Exact dates and times are on their web site: www.sabo.org). And, see our calendar, above, for the dates.
The Hummingbird Banding happens in our back yard on (most, but check the calendar carefully!) Friday afternoons. Join Tom and Sheri for a great hummingbird experience.
These banding sessions at Casa de San Pedro are free to our resident guests.
