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

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.

Great place. Laid out nice and easy to get around. Its very clean. The birds freaked me out a bit as you had to walk down a narrow path right by them but it was still really cool and educational.
