“Great Fun”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

The park is small but there are a number of different birds to see, allow around 2 hours at the park if you are taking in the demosntration.

The highlight is of course the Andean Condor - worth the trip to see it alone!

“Depressing”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

We got there in time for the demonstration, during which two of the birds flew away and didn't come back (at least not while we were there). I don't blame them. These huge, majestic birds are tethered to 6' runs so they crash into their own habitats when they try to fly. Since they recently stopped translating the demonstrations into English, I only caught part of the story, but I couldn't get out of there fast enough.

“beautiful birds”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

If you are staying in Otavalo go to this park. There are so many beautiful birds to see. And there are no birds which were captured but only rescued ones. Make sure you see the show (one in the morning, one in the afternoon. But check the actual times before you go). The big raptors and especially the Condor are very impressive!
Our hostal recommended to take the taxi from Otavalo because the area around the park is not safe. Which is sad because the landscape is beautiful and a walk there would be lovely. The park office called us a taxi to go back (4 dollars one way).
I only wished the birds had more space and more hiding places.

“Beautiful scenic mountain location.”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We enjoyed a couple hours at the park. All of the birds appeared well cared for and have huge cages. Price is very reasonable.
