    It is a very refreshing walk, a park well conceived to allow the birds engage in their habitat (or the closest thing) and visitors enjoy them. It is a stop at Copan

    The place actually allows you to connect with nature. You can walk freely along the trails and thus observe the variety of flora and fauna. You can find informational files. In addition to this you will find a shop where you can buy souvenirs, a beautiful place where you can take a cup of freshly ground coffee. And the most beautiful give you the opportunity to upload the beautiful macaws and take your photo for souvenir

    It is a beautiful place, it is a close encounter with nature and birds, where you can see within its Habitat, there are sections where you can enter your enclosures. Birds that you can find at this place, have been recovered from captivity and taken to this place for its recovery and then be released, although there are cases that this will not be possible because they have been abused and they already cannot overcome such damage, but at this place l as concienten and give them a better quality of life. The place itself excites you it, because there is a river that happened throughout the Park and we have bridges so you can, make stops and appreciate the river and listen as the water runs, and see birds that roam free in the Park. On the other hand, there is a section where you can interact with the birds and take photos as you are pay or with your cameras or cellular devices. These birds are more docile because they were bred in captivity and retrieving them not can be released because they do not know of life in freedom and for this reason, they're interacting with humans because they were so accustomed, but not always you can interact with them, because they have their hours of rest so that they are not stressed, they are very beautiful. There is a caffeine and coffee within the Park. The trayect is more or less 1 hour and a half. It is worth visiting the Park, first because you are helping the cause of it and second because it is a beautiful place, the entry for foreigners is $10. And you can take a motorcycle taxi that charges you $1 per person for carrying you to the place.
