I was skeptical when my wife mentioned wanting to visit here. My first glimpse of this bird wiped away all skepticism. The sound overwhelms you as you walk through the gate and just the sheer enthusiasm of the other visitors is contagious. Just go. I...More

We saw many nice birds. The owner was very friendly and when we entered she told us that we wouldn't have to pay the 10000 pesos in case we don't see any birds. According to her it's best to go in the morning at 5:40...More

I first learned about this bird, the Cock of the Rock, in 1999 and it has been at the top of my bird list ever since so I was quite excited at the prospect of seeing it. The reserve is on the edge of town...More
