"I have led retreats at Villa Sumaya for five years, when I am there my body is relaxed, my heart is open, and my spirit is connected with its source. For myself and the participants in my groups, each visit is a transformative experience. The beauty of the setting, the warmth of the staff, and the energies of the lake, the volcanoes and the Mayan culture combine to make Villa Sumaya one of the most magical places I know. "

Bird Watching Vacations

Villa Sumaya is an ideal location for observing first hand many of the rare and common species of birds that inhabit Central America.  Additionally, as a destination and midpoint, for many birds that are migrating south for the winter, this area offers a unique opportunity for viewing species that are actually native to North America.  Due to the abundance of brilliant flowers, our gardens are home to over a dozen species of humming birds.  Furthermore, our small food forest, which is free of construction and noise, offers several unique vantage points for observing birds that frequent different layers of the forest’s canopied habitats.  Our library offers half a dozen valuable bird identification  guides, and we are always grateful to add new birds to our on- going list of “birds sighted at Sumaya”.  From hawks to blue herons, canaries to blue jays, and pelicans who’ve lost their way from the coast, you’re sure to have many bird stories to take home with you.   For best results and a truly exceptional experience, we recommend taking a tour with one our knowledgeable bird guides, The Solis Brothers.

Here is partial list of birds that can be seen on the shores of our lake: Little blue Heron, Red Tailed Hawk, Horned one, American Coot, Common Moorhen, Spotted Sandpiper, Squirrel Cuckoo, Lesser Road Runner, Pheasant cuckoo, Fulvous Owl, Yellow-billied cuckoo, Rufous Saberwing (hummingbird), Green Violet-ear (hummingbird), Xantux’s Hummingbird), Green-throated mountain-gem, Sparkling-tailed hummingbird, White Eared (ummingbird), Azure-Crowned Hummingbird, White winged Dove, Inca Dove, Blue throated Motmot, Great Crested Flycatcher .
