Visit two of the most important Maya archaeological sites on this full-day tour: Coba and Tulum. Admire the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea while exploring the temples and pyramids of Tulum with a certified guide, then head to Coba to climb to the top of Nohoch Muul—the tallest pyramid on the Yucatán Peninsula. In the afternoon, take a swim in a 'cenote' (underground cave), sit down for a traditional Mexican lunch, and explore the city of Playa del Carmen. Round-trip transport is included.

We walked past the place from our hotel to Playa del Carmen so were intrigued. The price $300pesos is steep but you need to regard it as a donation. There is only one netted off area and in the rest of the reserve feeding keeps the birds there. Lots of pairs of different types of parrots and macaws. We were there for feeding for the herons and storks which was quite amazing. Sit on one of the benches and watch for a while. The flamingoes were fabulously bright. Pelicans and ducks too. A few identification signs would help or a laminated returnable guide. The man at the gate shows you one collage but no names and his English wasn’t good.

Yes, it’s 300 pesos a person, but if that’s what it takes to care for the birds and keep this small oasis in the highly-developed Playacar, we were happy to pay it for our time amongst the parrots, iguanas, pelicans, flamingoes, and countless other birds and friends. Having all the time in the world to wander and observe the animals, their movements and antics, and know that they were well fed and protected there was lovely. Many benches to take a load off and watch.

So it’s $16 a person to enter this “Aviary” The entrance badly designed for starters, the the path to access it a few feet away from the slightly dodgy looking ticket shack.. the paths inside are all slimy with moss and droppings from animals and the flora. If you’re looking for a great way to land on your ass and sprain an ankle this is the place to go. The animals are dotted around and can almost be touched (don’t touch) however with little to no barriers anywhere if you’re not careful with your admiring and photo taking you’ll quickly end up down a slope and in some dirty pool.. with some of the area fenced off you have access through some rotting rotating doors to admire the birds they’re more concerned of escaping.. benches scattered amongst for sitting, however they are more rot than wood. I’d say it needs some extreme tlc. But the price of the ticket won’t fit the care already needed.. nor justify the attraction of raised.. unfortunately it looks like something that will possibly soon close down.

This is a hidden gem of a place on the walk from Playacar to Playa del Carmen, although a bit of a “diamond in the rough” - the place is in need of some TLC in places, particularly the fences. The birds appear healthy and well fed, though, and are certainly happy to be there - apart from those in the enclosed aviary, they can fly off, if they don’t like it! Parrots, flamingos, ibis, herons, spoonbills, pelicans and different types of duck can be found in the trees and pool areas. And, of course, the grackles that are everywhere... The pools do look murky, but presumably that’s their natural appearance. The pathways can be a little slippery when wet, so watch your footing. The $300 (pesos) does seem excessive (£12.50/US$15) per person, for such a short walk, but it is interesting, and presents great photo opportunities. It would be a shame if it were to close down, but could do with more maintenance and expansion.
