An excellent place where nature mixes with the roads and cages where they remain in captivity. Different birds, including macaws, parrots, toucans, the sound of them mix with the sound of the river that crosses the park itself

Part of the attraction includes dinning and a small cafe. The first offers old food they reheat for you, and the latter almost always runs out of food near mid afternoon. Not a good afternoon choice

we paid $2.00 for a moto taxi from our hotel (Yaxkin) to Macau Mountian. We paid $18 for entry and this included a personal very knowledgable guide for our hour long tour. My daughter and wife really enjoyed the park and interacting with the big birds. The park specializes in training these birds to survive in the wild and releasing... More

Only 20 limperas a person to take a mototaxi, Macaw Moutain is a fantastic and worthwhile site to visit. This is a bird sanctuary for rescued parrots, toucans, owls, etc., that are rehabilitated and released into the wild. Some can never be realeased, for a variety of reasons, and these birds are friendly and well cared for. Not only is... More

This bird park rescues macaws and parrots that the been illegally captured for sale for pets. They are nursed back to health and if possible they are released into the wild at the Copan ruins. This can take up to a year if they need to grow out their flight feathers and be taught how to fly. If they have... More

Cheap ride there from Copan town (L50 for the two of us). The guide was a young volunteer who obviously cared and knew a lot about the birds and their release programs. Really cool to be able to see the Macaws up close knowing they'll be released when they're ready.

They are restoring the national bird of Honduras, the macaw. They are doing the good work. Besides their efforts with the birds, they also have some of the best barb-b-que you will ever have - no sauce needed. Their coffee is so rich and flavorful.

This bird rescue and rehabilitation facility is worth a special trip. It is just on the edge of town in a gorgeous jungle type setting with a small river running through it. The director,Lloyd, is to be credited for a lifetime of devotion to the preservation of the local birds, most especially the iconic Scarlet Macaw. His facility is well... More
