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

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.

A very fun experience for family, kids,, friends or even solo. Beautiful, small park like setting in the jungle with numerous birds.

I've never been so close to a great egret. Truly thrilling for me. It cost a $20 entry fee, but, if you love birds, it was worth it. We saw all different kinds of egrets, ibis, storks, pelicans, and flamingos, plus some other tropical birds...More
