Keel-billed Toucan is the national bird of Belize


I thank Laurielle Penny of Quest Nature Tours for inviting me to lead this 12-day adventure trip to Belize and Guatemala from 25 February to 8 March 2013. Our Belizian guides, Luis Godoy, Carlos and Hernan did an outstanding job of showing us Belize. Additional local guides enhanced our experiences. We did many nature walks and visited four Mayan sites and two caves. Our Quest group was full of enthusiasm and energy for spotting wildlife.
