Belize, a small country south of Mexico is a fantastic place for watching neotropical raptors and other birds and animals like the Morelet’s crocodile.
It is a great place to see raptors like the Ornate Hawk-Eagle, Black Hawk-Eagle, Black-and-white Hawk Eagle, King Vulture, White Hawk, Aplomado Falcon, Orange-breasted Falcon and many more.
With some (or maybe a lot of) luck even Jaguar sightings might be possible.
A wonderful way to travel to Belize is with the great guys from the Belize Raptor Research Institute. They know the place like no other, have an in-depth knowlegde of the indentification and ecology of the local raptors and wildlife and actively do conservation work in Belize for raptors like the Solitary Eagle.
I was on a trip with them myself in December 2012 and it was spectacular with many raptors and other amazing sightings, great food, wonderful people and many fantastic experiences.
Their next trip is in August 2014. If you want to do Neotropical birding or raptor watching, this will be a fantastic trip.
