  • This sanctuary is private so the price of entry is quite expensive to be 300 pesos. The visit takes about 20-30 minutes

  • 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
