The tropical climate and habitats of Central America are home to an enormous and exotic array of flora and fauna. 1000s of species live here and for its size, the region has some of the greatest biodiversity on the planet.

We travel and observe with great care, the key being our guides who are qualified ecologists and conservationists. They not only bring our adventures alive with wonderful knowledge and insight, they make sure that we don’t disturb each habitat and the creatures that we encounter.

Nature is unpredictable, as we all know, so to create journeys in which clients can witness as much wildlife as possible, we have honed in on specific locations in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Honduras and Belize, where there is a high concentration of different species and an eclectic mix of creatures that are spotted regularly.

Here’s a handful. The American crocodile and caiman, tapir, tayra, and anteater, otter and sloth; the spider monkey, howler and white-faced capuchin; the bullet ant, boa constrictor and iguana; the brightly colored poison dart frog and leaping green tree frog with red eyes; beautiful birds like the harpy eagle, red macaw and green chocoyo, toucan, hummingbird and oropéndola; the manatee and the tarpon, an enormous tropical river fish that grows as big as us; bottlenose dolphins, lemon-eye sharks and hammer-heads.

They all live here. Will you see them? ‘Si dios quiere’, as the saying goes. The secretive jaguar and ocelot are more likely to see you than you them, though it can happen. In 2018 we defied the odds and saw a large jaguar crossing our path 50 meters ahead. It was only the second time in his life that our guide had seen one in the wild.
