An extraordinary adventure! The itinerary for the trip was incredibly well planned, and I can't imagine a better Belizean birding and cultural expedition. From the packing list to the introductory pre-trip Zoom call with everyone, to our first meal together as travel partners to the last round of Euchre played in the lodge's common area, traveling with Indigo Birding to Belize for the very first time was a spectacular (and worry-free!) time. I appreciated the pre-trip communication to help in preparation for my first international birding trip, as well as how literally every detail was taken care of by Indigo Birding. And, once on the trip, I loved the variety of lodgings and outings with local guides and experts. I truly cannot say enough good things about my experience (evident in the 100s of photos I have shared with everyone I know!). I highly HIGHLY recommend this trip to anyone with an interest in learning more about the country of Belize and its flora and fauna. The highlight for me was a three-night stay at Black Rock Lodge near the Guatemalan border. Not even three days of non-stop rain could make that place any less magical; I had to stop myself from bursting into tears upon arrival, that's how beautiful it is! Thank you, David, for such an amazing trip!

This was a delightful trip despite all the rain we experienced. Everyone in the group was easy to get along with. David is a delightful leader who planned an outstanding itinerary. Loved all the times spent on boats, and the cultural site visits (especially Xunantunich - not so much Lamanai), butterfly farm, zoo tour, and the chocolate factory (really terrific). We got excellent birds, and the night birding at Black Orchid and Lamanai was terrific. Ava was a delight to have along. My biggest complaint - the food portions served were way too big! I would travel with David again and would recommend him to anyone. And this from someone who has done one to several birding tours a year since 2006. *****

A good time in a new area for me. Lots of birds and a variety of habitats. Early morning birding followed by a hearty breakfast at our B&B was brilliant. Convivial conversation over breakfast was a bonus. I also particularly enjoyed the opportunity to bird while kayaking. At this point in the season we had some good opportunities to observe nesting/ feeding behavior. As always David was great helping us locate birds and very attuned to group preferences.
