Parque das Aves, Foz do Iguacu

4.7
#1 of 3,474 in Outdoors in Brazil
The zookeepers at Parque das Aves allow you and your children to come into direct contact with the colorful tropical birds of their conservation project. Located on 16 hectares (40 acres) in the Atlantic rainforest, huge aviaries allow you to watch these majestic winged animals fly. Volunteers and staff had to rescue most of the residents due to animal trafficking or because they were unable to survive in the wild.

Feeding toucans, blue and yellow macaws, parrots, flamingos, lorikeets, and other tropical birds a healthy diet of fresh, organic foods helps them become well again. In addition to birds, butterflies and other animals roam the grounds. Through activities for younger and older children, kids will learn about the center's breeding program that releases the new generation into the wild.

    A chance to get up close and personal with Toucans and Macaws. Lots of other species as well. I don't particularly like seeing animals in enclosures and a lot of these birds look pretty fed up, but they are looked after very well. That said, it's still fascinating to see them this close. The park does a lot of conservation work with the national park service so there are some positive outcomes.

    An amazing birds zoo. You enter inside big, really big, cages with lot of bird species inside you can get very close and even touch them. Great forests, great views and a broad variety of birds. Excellent park!

    I loved this place. The variety of birds is amazing. We could see some from very close. They let us hold one. The toucans very very beautiful. I would greatly recommend it .

    Awesome place! You can get close to a lot of birds. Most of them are free. You also can go in a huge place with lots of parrots flying around. In the end you can also take a picture with a parrot on your arms. Really great experience.

    Very well maintained and organized. Beautiful birds, several trained to great you. A must see. Best to travel (if from AR side) in private car, very expensive to add this stop via bus tour!

Where to stay in Foz do Iguacu

Given the one dominant attraction in Foz do Iguacu, it's not surprising that the vast majority of accommodations sit on the south side of town, on the way to the waterfalls. To get as close as possible to the falls, stay in the southern neighborhoods of Jardim Eldorado or Jardim Iguacu. Many of the hotels in those neighborhoods line Avenue das Cataratas, the road that leads all the way to the falls. To get a better feel for the rest of the city, stay in the city center or its next-door neighborhood, Vila Paraguaia. From your hotel near the Parana River, you'll enjoy views over the neighboring city of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay.
