Noel Thompson

Noel was born and raised in western Belize, where he still resides in the village of Cristo Rey. Coming from a mixed ethnic background, Noel is fluent in three languages: African Creole is his first, English second, and Spanish third. In 2010, he was certified by the Belize Tourism Board as a tour guide, which required extensive coursework including three months of practical field experience. His field education continued in depth as he launched his career as a naturalist guide, and he has since completed intensive courses in birding, public relations, first aid and swift water rescue. Noel is passionate about Maya history and culture, and he is currently augmenting his substantial knowledge with a course covering all the Maya archaeological sites in Belize. Since obtaining his guiding license, Noel has had the opportunity to work with top scholars including noted archaeologists, ephigraphists and botanists. He has also hosted groups from Georgetown University, Chatham Women’s College and Hannover College on journeys through the country, in addition to Natural Habitat Adventures groups. When he isn’t out guiding, he enjoys taking in the beauty of the Macal River near his home, canoeing, swimming and fishing with his kids.

Praise from Nat Hab travelers: 

N. Lerman

"Noel is a keeper. His eagerness, inquisitiveness and desire to learn were delightful to watch. When asked what we enjoyed most on the trip, my answer was spending time with this lovely guide. We enjoyed our kind and thoughtful Expedition Leader who really wanted us to love Belize and see everything he could possibly show us."

S. Higginbotham

"Noel was a great guide! He was attentive and helpful."

F. Di Poi

"Noel took great care of the group. He has a lot of knowledge about his country's flora and fauna, as well as culture and history. He is very personable and showed great confidence."

T. Cissna
"Noel was a very knowledgeable and personable Expedition Leader!"
