I am not a fan of birds in captivity, although they are being confiscated from people who trade them. but the birds are very pretty and well maintained, and there is a place to swim with place to change cloths.

Beautiful walking tour lead by very knowledgeable guide. The birds are amazing and the work being done in the preserve to rehabilitate wild birds that have been held in captivity is well-worth supporting.

The Macaw bird park is a relatively small but beautiful aviary housing various types of parrots, green and scarlet macaws, and other interesting birds. The birds are not captured in the wild, but they were either seized in raids by the government from the black market or were old pets. Having macaws as pets in Honduras is illegal, so most... More

My young sons love seeing the birds and exploring the trails. There is a lot of great information about the birds and the organization has a much needed mission as well!

I had a nice time here, there were so many types of birds and plants, just follow along the paths and enjoy it all. There is also a river walk. Many of the birds have been rescued so they enjoy the good life now. The enclosures are big and mostly it seems a good life for the birds. many are... More

No words can express how impressive this place is. Our guide was SUPERB! He was very knowledgeable about the ecology, plants and animals within this park. Beautiful colors abound here. Unless you happen to live surrounded by such natural beauty & wildlife, you gotta see this!!

There's not a lot to say about Macaw Mountain that hasn't already been said. I agree with everyone else - the park is doing an excellent job rehabilitating birds and caring for those that must remain in captivity, our guide was friendly and knowledgable, and both the cafe and the restaurant serve quality fare. The unique part of our visit... More

Macaw Mountain rescues and rehabilitates macaws and other endangered / charistmatic birds. The entry fee supports their efforts and allows you to see a wide variety of interesting birds in a very natural, outdoor setting and, at the end, take photos of 3 macaws you will be holding. A must do in Honduras.

Great small site....can be done in under an hour. It helped to know that this is the place that the birds who are in the wild at the Copan Ruins have been rehabilitated. You see so many species of birds, AND you get to hold them!! Wow!
