Iguacu Bird Park

The Parque das Aves is one of the best small aviaries in the world. It is the only institution devoted to rehabilitating and conserving birds of the South American Atlantic Costal rainforests – which have the highest endemic species counts on the planet.

The park work on a series of conservation projects and is well-maintained with large enclosures lying off paths in a gorgeous jungle setting. It’s one of the few places where you can see magnificent, ultra-rare species like Alagoas curassow, harpy eagles and hyacinth macaws – the latter are huge parrots unique to Latin America. There are other animals too – including kitten-sized marmosets and caiman.
