“Terribly overpriced and not that many birds you wouldn't see just walking along.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Not much to say really, I was very disappointed with this avairy. I spent three hours patiently watching and searching and in the end came to the conclusion that I had seen more birds in the grounds of my hotel. I would like to believe that this is run by a foundation that dedicates itself to helping birds, as at least I would then feel that my money had gone to a good cause. If not then it's a tourist trap. As others have commented it is very expensive for what you get, so I would give this a miss. If you do want to see birds a combination of a trip to Rio lagartos and xcaret would be a good start. If you can afford it Holbox island is another great place to go.

“Xaman Ha Aviary”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

I'm not sure that I'd recommend it even if the admission was free; kids are free but it was 23 USD per adult and the walk would be half and hour at best. There isn't a great deal to see and I didn't find it particularly well maintained. One would think that an aviary in an exclusive area like Playacar would have better representation. My advice would be to save your money and go to Crococun Zoo.

Lovely aviary in a very natural setting. Lots of birds to see and several wandering around to you can get up close and personal.

“Over priced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

The birds were lovely to look at especially the friendly toucan and it's a nice walk round but it is so so expensive and not worth it at all.

Wouldn't do it again and sadly can't recommend.
