XAMAN HA AVIARY
Playa del Carmen, México - Xaman Ha Aviary Map
Xaman Ha Aviary is a wonderful natural habitat for some 60 species of tropical birds who populate the jungles of the Yucatan peninsula.
Here you can see roughly 200 individual birds living in harmony with one another, all within an open-air sanctuary that has paths and trails leading to the birds' preferred nesting areas. These birds live, eat, fly and reproduce within Xamana Ha's little Mexican jungle, and they intermingle with many of the non-winged species of Quintana Roo; like iguanas, butterflies, squirrels, and the turtles and fish found in the cenotes of the Riviera Maya and Yucatan.
Kids love this place! Xaman Ha is one of the only places where children are certain to see some of the most spectacularly colored birds of the jungle and hopefully develop a sense of repect for them and their natural habitat.
And Xaman Ha is a great find for adults too, and a unique opportunity to practice your photography skills. Both still and video cameras are allowed in Xaman Ha Aviary, and for those bird lovers who like to use a tripod to steady their camera, these are also allowed at no additional fee (unlike many of the Maya ruin sites of the peninsula)
