This is a great activity when visiting Baru. There are many, many varieties of birds. The presentation was only in Spanish but the birds they introduced were remarkable. The park is laid out for a nice easy stroll. The whole family loved this location. We...More

My traveling companion is an avid bird-watcher, so visiting the Aviario Nacional was particularly fascinating for her. I enjoyed seeing native South American birds, such as the toucan, up-close.
