Visiting the McCaw Mountain Bird Park in Copan Ruinas, Honduras
By now you have read some of my other posts about different leisure activities I have participated in while visiting Honduras. If you haven’t, you can catch up on all of them by clicking here.
I don’t know anybody that is not interested in seeing the beauty of tropical birds. Well, Copan Ruinas in western Honduras has a great place to see them. It is the McCaw Mountain bird sanctuary.
You will see plenty of colorful birds at the McCaw Bird Sanctuary

In Copan, the means of transportation for tourists are the small golf cart taxis. That is what you will ride in up into the mountain where the sanctuary is located.
Taxis in Copan Ruinas, Honduras
On the day I visited, the trip was arranged as a side excusion as part of my studies with the Ixbalanque Spanish school in Copan, but you can find any golf cart taxi to take you.
There is an admission charge to enter the park. Plan on spending 2-3 hours. I wanted to share with you some of the photos I took while visiting the park.
The park is open everyday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Entrance fee is $10USD per person. If you are interested in checking out their web site, you can click here.
