A multi - faceted eco-tourism project on ten heavily forested acres in a stream fed valley, only six minutes by vehicle from Copan Ruinas Central Park. Macaw Mountain Bird Park and Nature Reserve provides our visitors a very personal encounter with the fascinating birds of Honduras in a stunning natural setting. It is a relaxing, educational and quite memorable experience and your visit will help support our goals of aviary conservation and free macaw reproduction.
