The Aviary itself is a beautiful, enchanting place - so many different species of native and migratory birds to see and learn about. Our guide, Yerlis, was incredible - very kind, accommodating, and a great photographer :) She was knowledgeable about the birds and helped us understand even more about the local culture in Cartagena. We enjoyed a delicious lunch at a local spot after the tour - she ordered Mojarra Rojo for us, which came with patacones, arroz de coco & and avocado salad, plus a refreshing limonada. We were full from such large portions, but truly delicious local cuisine. If you don’t want to eat fish, be sure to ask what else is available. We didn’t have any plans later that afternoon, so Yerlis offered to take us to a few different excursions based on our interest and availability. We were enjoying our time with her and our driver Wilberto so much that we agreed to visit another place with them that afternoon, and decided on a canoe ride through the Mangroves, which was a very interesting and enjoyable experience. Afterwards, she shared many photos of us that she captured throughout the day, and gave us a recommendation for a beautiful upscale eatery in downtown Cartagena, which we did end up visiting that night (Úma Catina). We look forward to our next visit to Cartagena and will surely reach out to Yerlis and Wilberto as our guides for our next adventures :)

Fun trip to the Aviary

The aviary opened around 2018 and is well designed with walkways that sometimes are a tree height so you can get a very good look at the birds. The areas for the birds are usually quite large and there is a good variety to see. We enjoyed the excursion there and would recommend it to anyone who would enjoy seeing some of the many bird species in the area. Lunch at a local restaurant is included in the trip which we also enjoyed.
