  • To build more House, buildings... of destroyed the Aviary. Sad reality of Playa del Carmen... increasingly less space to animals and nature... more and more concrete, more buildings, more beton.

  • We did get to see a few neat birds but had been told that this was a sanctuary where the indigenous birds were free to come and go. However some (like the parrots) are kept in place and one big sectio...  more »
  • Great place. Laid out nice and easy to get around. Its very clean. The birds freaked me out a bit as you had to walk down a narrow path right by them but it was still really cool and educational.  more »

  • The Aviario is near the Playacar II entrance gate, only about 200 yards / metres down Paseo Xamen Ha, on the right side of the road. The natural environment of the aviary was impressive and we saw a lot of cool birds like flamingos, roseate spoonbills, and wood storks. It's a fairly big place, although not wheelchair-accessible (lots of stairs everywhere). We were expecting an entrance fee of 300 pesos each (about 17 US dollars) which may seem a little steep, but we felt it was worthwhile for the opportunity to see the unusual birds. From what I understand, most birds will be seen in the morning and late afternoon since that's when they come in to feed. The birds are all free to fly away, although they like visiting the space because the Aviary staff put out fruit and other food for them. (I believe the hours are 9 am - 5 pm daily.) Here are some driving directions that worked for us: The Aviary (Aviario) is in Playacar II. The gate for Playacar II is at the end of 10 Avenida Sur, although it's a one-way street if you try to turn onto it from Avenida Benito Juarez. So we went down 15 Avenida Sur, turned left at the dead end and got onto 10 Avenida Sur which is a 2-way street at that point. If you walk in you will not speak to the gate guards. If you drive in, just let them know you are going to the Aviario, either by saying that or showing them a piece of paper where you've written Xaman-ha Aviario. When we said Aviario the guard let us in. After going through the Playacar II entrance gate (walkers enter on the right) go about 300 yards straight down the road (called Paseo Xamen Ha) and you'll see the sign "Aviario" on the right side of the road.
  • Great place with the kids to see close up many birds
  • Very beautiful bird park. Here, the birds fly through the Park and you can watch very nice. The entrance is worth

  • An Aviary with variety of beautiful birds that one can go enjoy seeing them through the tour, worth staying a while and go calmly observing different birds, since some do NOT go so easy. I great place...
