Loro Sexi Bird Park in Almuñecar
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 these birds.
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.
