Dirty and poorly maintained. Nowhere to sit, paths uneven and tricky to walk on. Birds don’t appear well looked after. Only took 20 minutes to walk around - a total waste of money for 300 pesos per person. Came away feeling sad for the birds...More

Happened upon this park on a bike ride through Playacar. The cost was $300 peso per person and it was well worth it. The birds seemed happy enough although I did wonder why they didn’t fly about, so it seemed a bit sad. You really...More

We came here in 2011 & it had a real WOW factor. Seeing as it was most memorable we thought we’d return, & were quite shocked by the place that this has become. There’s hardly any birds there compared to what once was, & it...More

Local Aviary and have walked by many times. But stopped and paid entry fee. Interesting but not too many people come to see the birds. All kinds of new construction next door _ more condos, so birds are a little skittish but beautiful. Glad we...More

Not suitable for people with physical disability. Looks like birds have wings clipped. Branches are bare assumely where the birds pace. Costs the equivelent of 15 pounds a person. Lots of mosquitoes. Had to give a star but would have preferred not to. Please don't...More

A poor experience with a sad presentation that is stinky and poorly maintained. Poor birds that are not treated well. They are roughly treated and the place is not well taken care of. Do not even waste your money.
