Owner description: The Parque das Aves is an essential tour for visitors of Foz do Iguassu, located near the Cataratas do Iguassu, beside the Iguassu National Park. In the Parque das Aves you will experience a direct contact with more than 1320 birds from about 143 different species. There are 16.5 hectares of lush Atlantic Rainforest maintained to provide the best habitat for our animals. This is a tour like no other. It is an unique and unforgettable experience in which you will find amazing birds. Enter our immersion aviaries to feel the beat of wings from vibrant macaws and look into the eyes of a toucan. There is plenty to feel and enjoy - beauty is everywhere and that is what motivates us every day to work for the preservation of our fauna and flora. We take into our care birds that are no longer in condition to continue living in nature and keep them in an environment where they can live happily. You are an essential part of this project. All you need to do to help preserve it is to enter into the experience with all your senses.

“Parque das Aves - Birds Park - Beautiful Colours flying close to you”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Birds Parks is almost in front of the Iguassu Waterfalls (Brazilian Side) and you (and your family) will have 2 hours surrounded by beautiful birds, butterflies and a rich vegetation. The contact with the birds is so close that you can have a tucano, for example, landed in your arms for a beautiful picture. Sometimes they fly beside you so close that it's possible to feel the movement of the air. There is a circuit to follow duly identified with the specimens. The cages are imense and you will be into them together with the birds. Prepare your camera.
One of the issues is the fee. IMPORTANT: They don't accept credit cards. You can change your dollars with the merchants but the exchange is not exactly the best thing of the world.
The fees are variable if you are a foreigner (~US$15,00), if you are a Brazilian (US$11,00) or if you are a Mercosul Citizen.
If you want you can visit both Iguassu Falls and Birds Parks in one day but my suggestion is divide these 2 beautiful visits in different days.
There is a small restaurant there with fish, meat, sandwiches and so on. In front of the Birds Park there is a Restaurant with fixed price where you can eat your fill. It's typical daily Brazilian food with rice, beans, meat, fried chicken, spaguetti, bolognesa sauce, manioc, vegetables, salads and fruits and sweets. You'll pay R$23,00 (US$12,00). IMPORTANT: children under 10 don't pay.

“So Many Beautiful Birds”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We went to the Parque Das Aves so that our 6 year old could see some indigenous South American birds. And quite frankly we were impressed and amazed at the variety of birds in the park. This is a great place if you want to spend an easy morning watching beautiful, colorful birds. Especially if you have young children, you have to spend some time in this wonderful place.

The Parque Das Aves is located very close the entrance to the Foz de Iguacu National Park. It has a wide variety of birds from South America, especially arraras (parrots), macaws and toucans. And all this in a protected and safe environment. Some of the birds even come close to you (it thrilled our 6 year old to bits)!

There was also a large butterfly enclosure, filled with large and small butterflies in a multitude of colors.

Remember to carry your camera and bug spray. It is also very humid in the park (we went in December) - dress light.

“Best Bird Park in the World”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

This bird park lets you get up close and personal with dozens of different birds. You can hold a snake or a parrot. In the various aviaries the birds come right up to you. There is a special aviary for hummingbirds and butterflies. It is an amazing experience to have these creatures surrounding you and zooming by at amazing speed, yet stopping on a dime. The paths are well laid out and the animals have fantastic habitats. A must see.
