Los Andes Nature Reserve is located on the southern slopes of the Atitlán volcano in Guatemala, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The topography at Los Andes is very pronounced and the elevations go from 900 to 1,500 m.a.s.l.
The reserve is an area in which environmental conservation, agricultural production and human development are carried out in a sustainable manner, for the well being of present and future generations. In 2001, Los Andes was certified as a Private
Nature Reserve and is a founding member of the Guatemalan Association of Private Nature Reserves (Asociación de Reservas Naurales Privadas de Guatemala – ARNPG).
Sixty percent of Los Andes is original forest. Abundant wildlife, especially birds, fills the tea gardens and coffee fields, and the cloud forest that lies between them and the still warm cone of the volcano. In 2003 Los Andes was selected by The Nature Conservancy as one of its pilot projects in the Atitlán area to develop a sustainable ecological management program that guides conservation efforts into the future.

An unusual photographic activity, based on seeking great felines, through Cloudy Forest in dry season. With excursions in the sites daily visited by pumas and jaguars, we will utilise camera-traps and infrared barriers to photograph these elusive animals in a tour dedicated to the exploration and research in the wildest Guatemala
The particular geographical position of Guatemala makes it a must for the North-South migrations of the American birdlife. Our reserves, placed from the Caribbean Sea to the Andes, will allow to fully enjoy this phenomenal moment on a dedicated tour. We will move across these areas, also with excursions through the jungle, to be able to observe a wide number of species in a few days. We are talking about a journey not only for birdwatchers but also for photographers. In fact, migratory birds are very present in feeder of our hides, they find food and refuge during their journey and allow us to photograph them in the best conditions.
Thanks to our boat we will sail from the Bay of Amatique to the southern atolls of Belize. You can enjoy several days’ excursions in order to discover the wildest part of the Caribbean Sea. We could stay in small but picturesque huts on the semi-uninhabited islets, which are visited only by a handful of people each year.
In such exclusive sites we could discover the authentic nature of the Caribbean: dolphins will accompany us while we sail the waves, colourful fish will surround you thanks to our snorkelling sessions in luxuriant coral reefs and during navigation we will be able to offer food to pelagic birds in migration. They are numerous during this season in the atolls that they use as a stopping point. The stars of these trips are undoubtedly the Frigate birds, Pelicans and Gannets, which can get very close, allowing you spectacular photos.
