What a great find!
We found a leaflet in a hotel and immediately wanted to visit!

The birds are spectacular, the gardens fantastic, and the location with the views are incredible. Everything was immaculate and well laid out.

We would definitely go back and stay longer next time - just to sit at the cafe and look at the view is worth going by itself.

But the real stars are the birds. The colors are breathtaking!! Adults and children alike will love them!

Well done to this hard working couple with a great vision!

Highly recommended!!

My eight year daughter with a thing for big exotic birds luckilly spotted a green leaflet in a hotel lobby the first day we arrived at our hotel in Sissi, Lasithi, and we absolutely had to go and visit the place the day after. The road to Amazonas Park might be a bit steep, but the view from above is wonderful. We have managed to get lost, though, so follow the signs closely once near Neapoli. Once there, another steep entrance to what seemed to be birds paradise. Wonderful, wonderful hosts, true animal lovers, Patricio and Fabienne have taken us on tour and showed us everything there to see with interesting stories behind it. Plenty of exotic birds to see, the best thing of all, they all seem very happy and well looked after. You can even get into the big cage with budgies, just magical for kids, and for grown ups as well. Since my daugter absolutely adores big parrots, Fabbiene and Patricio even took out them from the cage and let her pet them and have the picture taken. The story this great people told us, the sacrifice and troubles they have gone through to establish sanctuary for these endagered birds is tremendous and I have been left with full heart at the end of the day. If only there were more people like them. Definitely on our list, every time we come to Crete!

Amazonas Park is lying a little hidden in the mountains opened by 2 luxemburgish emigrantes which are specialized in saving parrots that are close to become extinct.It is actually an animal park but mostly for parrots They as well have a few other animals like goats turtles and a donkey. The location itself is really a wonderful place and the park is really looking fantastic. The drive to the park as well is a real nice scenery when you come from elounda only to recomand.
