If you love birds and nature it's great. I've never experienced so many opportunities to see these magnificent birds up close. The project and programme is genuine and great. This is supported by local command government. They do release birds into wild again. You can easily spend a couple of hours here. Thank you for your work

Loved visiting this place to see all the beautiful birds. But if you are limited for time and only go there to see the macaws, then go to the Ruins and at the entry, you will find dozens of birds flying around you, giving you plenty of photo opportunities. I got so many beautiful photos at the reserve, and even a lot with me in the photo and the birds behind me, perched on a tree right at my shoulder. Awesome experience.

We enjoyed this more than I thought we would. The birds are really great to see, and I appreciate the mission of the place -- it started by taking in birds the owners couldn't have any longer. It's nicely laid out, and the admission seemed to be a fair price for the nice experience. We took a tuk-tuk to & from town and that worked out great. They let you be photographed with some of the birds at no additional cost, which was pretty fun.

View the magnificent birds, some already out of the cages. There are some other birds to see: owls, vultures, toucans,…

Had wondeful 4 hours at the reserve. Birds all looked well cared for. Signs around park in Spanish and English. Birds feed at 1200 so be at the cafe where you’ll be surrounded by macaws. Had refreshing dip in the river at the reserve.. access bit basic. Thoroughly recommend a visit here. Great value for money and a short cheap tuk tuk ride from centre of copan.

If visiting the ruins well worth a visit. As we understand the sanctuary is doing a lot for the preservation of rare Honduran birds. With these strong ethical reasons it’s money well used. A very short journey from the middle of Copan Ruinas

We stopped here after visiting the ruins. Our tour guide had recommended it.

We enjoyed the place a lot. We spent about an hour there and saw a wide variety of tropical birds that have been rescued from the pet trade. There were various macaws, toucans parrots and other species. Most will be released to the wild.

You should make a point to visit here if you’re in Copan Ruinas as it’s very impressive.

Macaw mountain, aside from being a beautiful place with countless birds is a nature conservation program like no other. They work under the premise of the four R´s: Rescue, rehabilitation, reproduction, release the birds (macaws, parrots etc)
Definitely a must try if you are in the Copan Ruinas area. They have amazing baleadas too!
I just had one issue with them charging my credit card twice but I will call them and I´m sure they will sort it out.

The bird park is up the road from the school where I work. The park is a must-see here in Copán. While most of the birds are in aviaries, there are several beautiful macaws that are allowed out of their cages and they let you get close to them (for taking pictures). I've seen some of these macaws land in trees at my school, as well as downtown near the central park.
