A small country in Central America, Guatemala, stands out at a worldwide level for its extraordinaire biological diversity and its wide variety of beautiful landscapes. In only 108,000 km2 there are over 700 bird species. In a few weeks, a birdwatcher may identify more than 300 species in a fabulous trip that goes from the humid cloud forests to desert-like lands, visiting at the same time its incredible archaeological and cultural legacy. Guatemala has a high diversity of regional endemics that belong to 4 main regions of endemism.
