As you walk thru the park and see Hawks, owls, Falcons and last Condors it’s a very well maintained park and the birds are well taken care of. My thoughts are if the should open the cage the birds would probably stay, they are well...More

This was truly a memorable and enjoyable experience. We learned so much about the Condors, and were amazed by the shear beauty of the mountains, the history of the area, and would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Ecuador.

Usually I'm not into bird parks, Birds should be flying around in teh open air. But here they have mostly injured birds who are not capable anymore to live in the wild. The bird show is cool, and some birds of prey have the chance...More
