We just about had the place to ourselves, lovely, it is a very pleasant walk along the river along the gorge, There is a photo oppertunity to have the birds sit on your shoulder. It is worth giving it the support it needs for the work it is doing with getting macaws back in the wild.

Very interesting place to see where many species of birds have been rescued.The Scarlet macaw is the national bird of Honduras, but many other parrot and macaw species can be seen.

Arriving late morning, we elected to find a place to stay overnight and hit the ruins early in the morning the next day, to avoid crowds and heat as recommended. We decided to spend the afternoon at Macaw Mountain, and what was supposed to take 45 minutes to an hour, we took double that time - met the owner and... More

The work they are doing here is amazing. Besides being a wonderful attraction everyone should support this parks efforts as they are re-introducing scarlet macaws (the national bird for Honduras) back to the Copan area, and have done so already, now making it possible to see wild macaws at the ruins. We need more of this.

Carlos was our guide and was so well informed and so excited about the birds. By the end of our two hours there we wished we had planned a whole day there, as they had a swimming hole, a cafe and a restaurant too! The birds were amazing and we got to hold macaws and toucans, in addition to seeing... More

A very pleasant way to pass a couple of hours after your visit to the ruins. A large collection of macaws, loros and other birds from Central America and having a photo with 2 or 3 of the large macaws perched on you is quite an experience!

Well - I lost a button to one of the amazing birds here, but that is NOT a deterrent. Go here. Walk through the cage that you can walk through. Hold the birds while someone takes pictures of you. Have a coffee or something to drink at the cafe. There is a safe spot to swim if you want, although... More

This is a neat little place. It's a pretty typical bird park...lots of different types of birds in large enclosures. But the setting is far from typical. It's really beautiful with a mountain stream running down one side with a mountain towering over you. The paths and boardwalks are thoughtfully laid out to give you the best views. It's a... More

This is a beautiful and very well organized museum that is part of an effort to reconstitute the original bird population at the site of the Copan Mayan ruins. It is wonderful to see the birds in liberty.

Learning how they rehabilitate endangered birds in Honduras was great, and the guide was very informed as to what and how it rehabilitation is done.
