Discover Honduras, a fascinating Central American country of abundant lakes, lush mountains, and pristine beaches. More than 740 species of birds occur here — including the endemic Honduran Emerald and the stunning Resplendent Quetzal. The country also hosts mammals such as jaguars, monkeys, tapirs, and peccaries. Honduras is perhaps best known for the ruins of Copan, the “Paris of the Mayan world.”
A Honduran birding tour is a natural next step in neotropical birding. Sitting near the middle in terms of species count, it's a great trip for those who have done the introductory countries like Belize and Trinidad.
Naturalist Journeys is pleased to offer Honduras birding tours and Honduras nature tours, as well as other Central American birding tours. Feel free to contact our travel planners with questions.

We offer you small-group birding and nature tours, limited to just 8-10 persons led by expert guides. Learn and explore with like-minded people, enjoy local food and culture, and immerse yourself in birding and nature.

Independent Birding Ventures (IBVs) are designed for those interested in more flexible dates, or a shorter or expanded itinerary. An IBV is like a “mini-tour”—with guided birding from delightful, small eco-lodges, meals and transport included. Let us do the work, you pick the dates and set the pace.

Honduran Conservation Coalition
Through the Honduran Conservation Coalition, a network of scientists initiates, promotes, and implements a range of citizen science, community-based conservation, and environmentally sustainable development projects in Honduras and the region.
Saving the Honduran Emerald
The Honduran Emerald is the only endemic bird in Honduras. Primarily an inhabitant of interior, arid, and open-canopy deciduous thorn-forest, this species is listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, primarily due to habitat destruction and fragmentation for plantation agriculture and cattle pastures. Protected sanctuaries and cattle management are key to its continued survival.
