About
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.

Fabulous birds
May 2021
If you're visiting the ruins then this place has to be on your list as it's just a short taxi ride out of the town.

If you have seen the macaws at the ruins then you'll probably know that this is where they come from. The tour takes you around a well structured bird park that is positioned in a picturesque valley with a river running through the centre.

There are loads of native birds kept in large cages and it's great to be able to see the work that goes in to the rehabilitation and release of many of these beautiful animals.

They have a small gift shop and cafe on-site so you can sit and enjoy a coffee and a snack surrounded by birds!

Lots of birds here, being rehabilitated for release back into the wild. Macaws, toucans, among others. Beautiful scenery and trails. There's a modest entrance fee.

Walking is a very big part of this tour. Each guide as a slant about the birds. The layout is well worth the time and their is so much to see and learn. Will take a good hour or more but not to stenious but it is up and down. Seeing the birds and hearing the lessons was great. Take water with you and their are facilities on the tour.

Near Copan Ruinas a fabulous bird park.... you feel being in the middle of the forest near guacamayas and other tropical birds.... and you can get a photo with them posse in your arms and head.... an excellent picture and a good project to support with your entrance fee.

Excellent Experience
Jan 2020
Great place to see exotic birds. All birds are being rehabilitated to hopefully be released back in the wild if they are considered capable of surviving on their own. Very knowledgeable and friendly guides. Can have pictures taken with some birds on your shoulders. I highly recommend for a quick hour of a unique experience.

Really enjoyed!
Jan 2020
We had a quick afternoon visit here with our 4 year-old son. Admirable enterprise and allowed us all to see several species of birdlife, while appreciating that they had been rescued from dire circumstances.
The park is easy to reach from Copan Ruinas town centre (via tuk-tuk) and the paths are well laid out throughout the property.

High light of my visit: beautiful, relaxing and uplifting
Jan 2020
I LOVE birds and this exceeded my expectations. It is a great project to increase the population of Macaws and other native birds and release them back into the wild, where they thrive. And to educate the local population about preservation of these beauties.

The grounds are beautiful, you feel like your walking into a tropical jungle. There's a
serious river running through and then the birds surrounded by magnificent trees and flowering plants.

I loved the whole experience...this is food for our souls.

Super Relaxing and Very Interesting

We enjoyed our self-guided walk through the bird sanctuary. You get to be very close to some truly beautiful birds. It is also very educational with regard to the bird wildlife in Honduras.
