Spread your wings at a high-flying Belize birding weekend you can’t afford to miss

According to a U.S. Department of the Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service survey, there were more than 45 million bird watchers in the nation in 2016 so imagine how many people love this activity world-wide? This relaxing activity doesn’t require a major investment. Get a proper guide and binoculars and watch your stress levels plummet.

Get a double dose of pleasure and delight at the Belize Birding Festival, slated for October 19th and 20th.

What can you expect from this two-day aviary extravaganza? Workshops lead by Dr. Lee Jones, Dr. John Fitzpatrick, and Serge Arias, three migrating bird experts with lofty academic credentials. You can stay at the festival’s headquarters hotel, San Ignacio Resort Hotel in Cayo, and save plenty of money.

Timing is everything

High season in Belize doesn’t begin until late November, so there are great deals on both accommodations and flights if you book early. Once you arrive, expect spontaneous rain showers that stop as quickly as they start and temperatures guaranteed to delight you: Daytime highs of around 84-degrees F; lows of 75-degrees at night.

You’ll stay busy inside from day to night, attending workshops and presentations you won’t find elsewhere. Don comfortable shoes for urban bird observation walks that can help you add to your personal registry of species if you keep a log listing every new bird type you encounter during your outdoor ventures. Belize is home to more than 600 migrating birds. Imagine how many you can add to your log! Evening social activities add a final touch of fun.

Keep going with a little help from the Barefoot crew

You’re invited to visit the festival website and Facebook page to see what you’ll miss if you don’t say yes to this one-of-a-kind celebration ( and check out to identify the amazing array of birds you could spot during your stay. You will be impressed.

Extend your stay beyond this weekend by renting a vehicle or booking tours with the nation’s number one resource for safe, efficient travel: Barefoot Rentals and Services. Whether you prefer to be chauffeured to sites or added to tours that include scuba diving, snorkeling, exploring ancient Maya cities and high-flying via zip line, Barefoot is your conduit to a nation filled with adventure.

And just because the weekend ends, that doesn’t mean your travels around Belize won’t add more bird sightings to your experience. In sum, your trip will be unforgettable–especially if you put Barefoot on your speed dial for quick access to transport that covers all of your in-country sightseeing and tour needs.
