“Four hours and three parrorts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

Maybe it was the time of year but we saw ZERO birds for the first 4 hours of our excursion. (With the exception of a few Roosters and a tame pigeon). It was only by blind luck that as we exited the parrot reserve we caught sight of three parrots sitting in a tree.

“Parrots?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2011

I loved all the natural attractions on Cayman Brac. Because the Parrot Preserve was not a "zoo" I did understand that there might not be a parrot sighting on the day we visited. It leaves something to look forward to the next time we visit.

The boardwalk only went so far. The surrounding land was rocky dolomite, andrather hazardous to walk upon. No parrots,not one.

“Fantastic and fascinating walk through a very unique ecosystem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

Great hike through a fascinating ecosystem - forest growing on top of million year old coral. Beautiful trees, huge agave, cactus, lots of birds, hermit crabs, etc. Go early (at day break) for the best chance to see the parrots!

The walk starts off with an easy to navigate boardwalk but soon turns to iron shore/coral so make sure you are wearing VERY sturdy shoes or boots. Even regular running shoes might not give enough support as the ground is very uneven and hard. Long pants are recommended as well as the ground is razor sharp so if you slip and fall even just a little you will surely have a nasty gash.
