I like this Gemma hidden and I consider that this is one of them. I think that places what pretend rescuers some of Mexican nature are necessary. Is a beautiful place but need help for rescue. I recommend visit to know a few things of...More
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
The park used to be bigger but someone decided to build new apartments right next to it so the park lost half its property...
But.. still it is really nice. Entrance is 300 pesos. There is 1 route with benches to watch the bird.
Tried to visit the aviary at 11am one morning however you have to go through a security post and the man on the gate said “no visit” and refused to let me in. My friend managed to get in later in the day and said...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.
We have walked past this place for years on our visits to Playa Del Carmen as we walk to town but have never gone in, so this time we stopped and went in, it was a little pricy I think 16 dollars a person to...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
Any comments on the Xaman Ha Aviary ? Is it worth the time to go there while spending a day in PDC? Will we be able to walk there from town, or what means of transportation would we have to use to get there? Thanks.

Ya, you can walk there from town ...it's a few minutes hike once you get to the "gate" going into Playacar. On the right going south... Tends to be a bit pricey for what you get, I think, but can be relaxing. It's ok ...Make sure you check the open hours. I'd find other activities in town rather than that if only one day in town. You can walk around the streets in that end of Playacar for free, park like setting and some ruins, cenotes, flowers, birds, and beach. PDC's little airport is...More
Xaman Ha Aviary- any1 been there? (7 Replies)
Xaman Ha Aviary- any1 been here? How far is it from PDC. How do we get here? Colectivo, bus, taxi? Best time to go (morning?) I hear it is expensive but a great place to see all kinds of birds in their natural habitats/open air sanctuary. (Toucans, parrots, snowy egrets etc...) And, if we go in the morning, is there a restaurant to eat at as well? What's the nearest town? Thx

Hi- Yes I have been. It is in walking distance from Playa... right past the entrance to Playacar. You could cab if you don't want to walk. Not sure if there is a best time to visit, but yes, lots of pretty birdies to see. I did think it was $$$ but I love birds so worth it for me! No restaurants on site. Beware of mosquitoes... pack your repellant!
