I agree with others on the price. It was very expensive for what it is. The birds were great. I got some great photos. It does show the nice diversity of the Yucatan. It is in a nice spot within walking distance of our hotel.

My husband and I visited this "Sanctury" and were appalled! It is very expensive to get in, the grounds are not maintained at all! The birds in our garden are in a better environment than any living in this Aviary. We walked round in about 20 minutes and then walked out! The water area that the flamingos were in looked more like a swamp. If you have any interest in birds I strongly recommend you do not visit! It is sad to see them living in such conditions. The only thing to benefit from the admission price is the owner who must be laughing all the way to the bank!!!!!

We could not wait to go and see the birds, but how dissapointing it is very uneaven and sometimes feels like your going to slip. Like many have said for what you see it is well over priced. We went to the aquarium in Cancun, as we like this sort of think and it was less than half the price and we had much more fun. If you still end up going make sure you take plenty of spray, or you will get bitten alive.

Save your money and go to the aquarium.

Right inside Playacar 2. It is not a big park, but it very quiet and when we went we where the only people in the all think. It gives you the idea of the beauty and the diversity of wild life of the Yucatan.

This is a very small bird santuary. We really enjoyed it and said, "Is that it?" $22 US is pretty pricey but we needed a diversion from the beach with our 3 year old grandson. Kids are free.
The Toucan allowed my husband to pet him so got some great photos. Even got a shot of the toucan biting him--watch out. Lots of beautiful birds and also some agouti running around.
Only a couple of other people were in the santuary with us which was nice. It seems like everything in the Yucatan has gone up by about 30-40 percent since we were here 2 years ago.
We are very surprised.
