Fermin Tzib

Fermin Tzib is a Belizean of Mayan descent who has been guiding natural history groups throughout Belize for many years. After completing his education in Belize, and furthering his education in the US, he then spent time working at the Mayan Temple site of Caracol, cataloging birds and wildlife. The success of this program helped Caracol to become a flagship Mayan Tourist attraction in Belize, which is how Fermin made his entrance into tourism. He went back to school, and was one of the first to receive the Belize Tourism Certification. He is a certified scuba diver and an avid birder, with a passion for Mayan history. Fermin has worked extensively throughout Belize and portions of Central America, and has been guiding natural history and archaeology groups in Belize for many years. He takes great pride in his country and looks forward to sharing it with you.

Praise from Nat Hab travelers:

T. Nolle

"We could not have had a better guide than Fermin for this trip. He was extremely knowledgeable about birds, Mayan history and culture and anything we wanted to know about Belize. There was anything that he didn't know about. He was so much fun to be with."

S. Zimdars-Swartz
"Fermin was an absolutely spectacular guide. He was caring, an expert, knowledgeable, attentive and fair to everyone's expectations. He made the trip for me."

L. Cudworth
"Fermin ties for the best guide we have ever had in our many years of travel. Each and every day, he made us feel like we were so special, and he always went out of his way to make sure he exceeded our wishes. At the end of our journey together, he wrote each of us a kind note and gave us a small Mayan carving representing our birth month. He's a keeper!"

P. Crawford
"Fermin is an encyclopedia of information. He not only is an expert in natural history (animals and plants) but is knowledgable about the history and archaeology of Belize and Central America. As trained archaeologists, we were especially impressed by his breadth and depth of knowledge."

D. Covert
"Fermin could not have been more pleasant, helpful and interesting. He was very informative in spotting and identifying the birds, animals and plants we encountered. He made our trip a wonderful introduction to the many wonders of Belize and Mayan culture."

S. McAuliffe
"Fermin was a pivotal part of my enjoyment of this trip. He was engaging in a way that went far beyond the typical work of a guide or local aid. He made us feel like we were longtime friends, coming together once again in admiration of the nature around us. The continual feeling of mutual celebration and friendship was more than I could have hoped for on a scheduled trip. It truly felt like someone I had known for years was waiting to pick me up from the airport and show me the fantastic world in which he lives. I cannot recommend this man highly enough. He is a gift to everyone who works with him. The energy, heart and experience Fermin brought to every interaction were beyond expectations and completely contagious. Together we laughed and explored in ways I do not think we would've with another guide. It truly felt like he became one of the family and took us in as his own. For me, Fermin was a highlight of our time in Belize."

K. Clayton
"Fermin's knowledge of the country was incredible! He knew so much about the animals, plants, history and archaeology. He was eager to share all his information with us. He gave us a map of the country the first day with our routes highlighted, so we could know where we were and where we were going. It seems like a small thing, but it was just one of the things he did to make the trip more enjoyable. He made sure that every person in the group got out to participate in the activities and see the sights, even if they had difficulty walking or climbing. He took some of us on separate outings, used golf carts or a van to be sure that everyone got the most out of every area. He was up early and out late. Where did he get all that energy and enthusiasm? :)"

B. Grossman
"Fermin took really good care of me. He checked my accommodations personally and asked the staff to be extra careful given that I am phobic about spiders. That was much appreciated. Also, I am a beginning birder, and Fermin spent a lot of time with me helping in bird identification. He was great! I would definitely take a trip with him as guide again."

D. McAuliffe
"Fermin was incredibly knowledgeable about history, culture, wildlife and the details of the trip, as well as unfailingly professional. He was thoughtful and engaging towards everyone in the group, striving to make us all comfortable and enjoy ourselves." 

A. Furze
"Superlative in every way! Fermin was so sensitive to each traveler's needs and interests, offering so many diverse options for adventures. I am in such admiration of his passion for both his culture and knowledge of the natural world. You are VERY lucky to have such a special person on your staff!"
