“Next best thing to the wild”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Obviously you hate to see any bird caged. But...after talking with the staff and getting the history on many of the "residents" we felt pretty good that the care was necessary and very humane. Once we got past that, it was pretty incredible to see the sheer number of raptors they have here. Beautiful birds that you can get very close to. Harpy Eagles, Snow Falcons, Andean Condors, etc. The "falconry" demonstrations are very cool indeed. Oh...and the setting is wonderful far above town with incredible views of the volcanoes and valley. It's worth it for the view alone!

“This is a must”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised with the number and variation of birds here. Walked around the whole park and then sat down for the show, which was great to watch. Unfortunately for us, it was all in Spanish, so some of it we didn't quite get, but still worthwhile.

“Beautiful vistas over Otavalo, with a nice waking trail around all the birds, small concession stand for food + drinks”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

The park is well maintained, and the birds appeared to be well looked after as well, being kept in large cages sufficient to actually fly a short distance.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a MUST go if you are in Otavalo, you might even skip the Ponchos market and go to Parque Condor instead, great for kids and grown ups as well

“Great place for bird lovers and pretty much everyone”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Fabulous setting and they are doing great work in saving injured raptors. I have sent many many people here and all have loved it. Try to make it for one of their presentations at 11 am and 4 pm. It is about a half hour (kind of rough) ride from Otavalo or Casa Mojanda can arrange your transport if you wish.
