My schedule stays pretty much the same from year to year as I choose what I've found to be the best times of year at each location for overall wildlife activity and comfortable weather.   I try to add a new destination every year or two.  There are several locations - Panama, Eastern Chiapas, Jamaica, Southeast Brazil, Belize, and El Triunfo - that I tend to visit every other year so they aren't always on the calendar
