    Of course, the undisputed stars of the aviary are the birds, which fly at their leisure in a totally natural environment and in perfect communion with the more indigenous part of the nature at the Riviera Maya.

    The animals of Playa del Carmen Park are in absolute freedom. Therefore, the experience is more enriching: birds, caterpillars, butterflies, iguanas, turtles… a complete festival for lovers of natural environment.

    Animals live in a typical landscape of the forest of Quintana Roo, in the heart of the Riviera Maya, with a unique ecosystem in all the world which is more interesting if we consider that in this space are preserved some species in danger of extinction such as La Palma Chit, the Red Macaw, the Yellow Head Parrot or the Turkey on Mount.
