This park aims to give shelter to injured, abused or abandoned birds (mainly parrots and toucans) and tries to rehabilitate them so they can be released again. They run a program to reintroduce macaws at the world heritage site of the Copan Ruins. Great place that deserves your support.

This is a refuge for abandoned and injured macaws, toucans and other birds. We did not appreciate how beautiful these birds are until we held them on our arms. It was a very charming experience.

We really enjoyed our visit to Macaw Mountain. We only stayed for an hour or so but it was really interesting to see the work that is being done to help stressed/injured Macaws and other birds recover in as natural an environment as is possible. You walk around a nature trail around which the enclosures are based. The enclosures are... More

Very nicely maintained and presented bird sanctuary. All the birds are rescued, some are retuned to the wild. Opportunity to interact with some macaws or the lazy friendly dogs that make the park their home. A ticket for the Canopy Tour includes this park. Cost for foreign tourist for the park only is L100

Brilliant ... see all the favorite CA birds close up. This park is working to help the Macaws back into the wild. They have a program to get captive birds out of their cages and work at getting them back to the wild. Also saw other lovely bird species that we usually only see though binoculars and as they quickly... More

I couldn’t help but feel guilty that it was so cheap to come and visit the park given how few visitors there were, and how much money must be needed to keep the place working. The place isn’t massive, but is a lovely excursion from Copan. Being able to have a free photo with the birds at the end is... More

We had a guide take us through the park. He was a wealth of information. the highlight is getting a picture with 3 macaws perched on your arms and head! At the end is a coffee shop with coffee grown on site. Fun 2 hours. We went zipling after the bird tour and had a blast! The guides were fantastic.... More

This was a lovely place to wander during the afternoon heat, the path is shaded and runs along a stream you can swim in. The effort made to rehabilitate the birds is obvious. You can see birds on all stages of rehabilitation, from sick or injured to ready for release. I wish there was more information posted about their processes... More

We loved our visit to the Bird Park. The work they are doing here to look after the birds is amazing as are the birds they are trying to rehabilitate or breed so as to reintroduce them into the world. The highlight however was definitely at the end of the tour when we got to interact with McCaws and even... More
