I went birding with Yobani for the day to locations around Copan Ruinas, Honduras. He is a personable, knowledgeable and experienced bird guide that I would recommend to anyone. He is also very knowledgeable about flora and and is a guide to the ruins.

A brilliant guide, not just in Copan Ruinas, but throughout the country. For coffee lovers, the country is unmissable!
We could not praise Yobani more highly; he is an extremely experienced birder and an expert on Mayan, Lenca and other indigenous people - especially the Garifuna communities - history and culture. Not only that, but he has friends all over the country, and thanks to this and his own vast knowledge, he arranged an unforgettable trip for us around the country, through Copan, Santa Rosa de Copan, Gracias, La Esperanza, Comayagua, Lake Yogua, La Ceiba, Tela and San Pedro Sula. Through his contacts we visited cocoa and coffee plantations, numerous birdwatching sites and natural parks, local craftspeople and communities, and excellent bars and restaurants. We saw Quetzals, numerous species of hummingbird, and the rare lovely Cotinga, and even had a painting class!…

One of the great experiences is lived with Xukpi for his valuable knowledge of the Mayan culture and the area. The tours, plus the story told in them, are complemented in full. It is simply worth experiencing this equation of adventure, history and a lot of impression

Many people are into just visiting museums or achaeological parks without a tour guide and wander around quietly. I for one, was one until I decided to do it differently on my visit to Copan Ruins. I'd already gone there a couple of times and became intrigued of what I saw, so when Yobani Peraza from Xukpi told me that he knew "just a little" from the Mayan culture, I decided to take my chance. Best decision ever taken!! He is very professional, friendly and was always aware of every step we took and every question we had about the archaeological site. I was definitely awestruck by the way he explained everything in a very natural, exciting and unique way. He knows a lot about it and gives you insightful facts about history itself, I was amazed. You feel so comfortable and safe taking a tour with him. Fully recommend Xukpi!…

Friends and I had a fantastic time with Yobani and his uncle Jorge - highly recommended for all sorts of tours but especially birding. Memories and photos for a lifetime!
