Visited at the end of February and was privileged to see many local birds as well as migrants, but the highlight is seeing the chocoyos (green parakeets) come at dusk into their holes in the wall. We had to wait a long time to see...More

The reason for going is to see the Pacific Parakeets flying into the holes in the cliffs and that happens in late afternoon. It is a beautiful place with waterfall and lots of parakeets in la tarde, but not many other birds because of the...More
