Birdwatching at Finca El Pilar Reserve
Visit the Finca El Pilar Nature Reserve at dawn to observe the many tropical birds that call Guatemala home. Venture into the cloud forest and keep your eyes peeled for highland guan, pewees and tanagers - don't worry your guide will help you spot them!
The early start is worth it for the many bird sightings you will have. Drive through Antigua's streets, usually bustling but at this time now are peaceful and sleepy. You will arrive at the reserve ready to hike along a trail that passes through coffee plantations and forested areas, keeping your eyes open for any other early risers in the treetops.
There will be a slightly strenuous ascent into the cloud forest where you will be able to view the jungle canopy from a series of wooden staircases - perfect for observing the reserve's winged inhabitants.
Not only will guests enjoy sightings of birdlife, but also the Agua, Fuego and Acatenango volcanoes in the distance.
