Granja de Avestruces, Villa de Leyva

3.6
#5 of 8 in Parks in Boyaca Department
Visit Granja de Avestruces to see the largest ostrich farm in the country. Meet these leggy birds on this family-friendly free-range farm, where other residents include llamas, goats, and horses. Kids can enjoy feeding the animals and burning off some energy on the playground. The ostriches have an organic diet, and the onsite restaurant serves up their eggs as well as their meat (if the thought turns your stomach, just stick with the farm).

    A place just a few minutes of Sutamarchán and Villa de Leyva, a farm where they explain you the whole brood of eggs of ostriches, with video, take a demo in hand and make the explanation... is a huge farm, you can interact with the animals Yama-ride, go down a path where the animals are, give them to eat the birds, show horses, ride in them and have a good time. Suitable for children and adults. The only thing is that the choice of food is not so extended. The warm and pleasant climate.

    The truth much surprised that there is a place with so much magic, that you back to childhood and allows you to interact in a simple way with animals. This well structured form of the tour and is a plan for families, couples, friends, schools and even more.

    The experience on the farm with regard to learn about animals, ostriches and other species that is nice and didactic. Too bad restaurant service which are wasting its potential. They have a very poor service, lack of knowledge by people serving there on how to provide the meat of ostrich and Buffalo that are the dishes that represent the farm, no presentation of the dishes, in terms of cooking of the meat not even ask which. The restaurant is managed as a road crossing restaurant, which does not sympathize with the prices on the menu offering. Therefore after the joy and good impression of travel, is the sinsabor of your lousy restaurant

    Since starting the entry to the site, is a little expensive separate charge parking lot. How second travel is very short and little profitable and at the end we invite you to the restaurant service is very poor... I had to wait a lot of time for the preparation of the dishes and became crude and poorly seasoned. Not recommended

    It is cool to see the ostriches and the chance to interact with them, as well as seeing the other animals. However it seems a bit short travel to the value of the input (15000).
