Bird watchers and families will be delighted to find this small but impressive ornithological treasure in the
center of Almunecar. The raucous squawks reveal the fact that the collection is heavily weighted towards South
American species, particularly the Macaw families. There is a pair of Hyacinth Macaws, an endangered species
which is nearly extinct in the wild and whose collection has been banned, so it is a rare opportunity to see
The layout of the park and the construction of the cages is adequate, but access to them may be difficult for
some, however it is well worth climbing the steps and walkways to view the rarer species of toucans, parrots
and cockatoos in the upper areas. Ostrich and peacock specimens are on the ground level as are ducks and more
common birds and parakeets. You will also find a Black Crowned Crane and the unusual Trumpeter Hornbill.
As you explore the tropical park you will also enjoy views of the San Miguel Castle above. The castle is a quick 5
minute walk up the hill when you are done.
