The Xaman Ha Aviary is nestled on a magnificent Caribbean beach in the Playacar Resort, right at the heart of the Riviera Maya's Playa del Carmen. It spans 1.8 hectares of tropical forest and lush jungle vegetation. The aviary is an outstanding natural habitat of around 60 of the most beautiful and rare species of tropical birds native to the region's jungles. In the Xaman Ha Aviary you will find aquatic birds such as ducks, linseed birds such as flamingos, flight cage species and a whole lot more. You will also find paths and trails that would lead you to their preferred nesting areas. An estimated 200 birds populate the Xaman Ha Aviary and live in complete harmony with one another while pleasantly coexisting with other inhabitants of the area.
