This program is awesome! We watched the green parrots eating and flying in a beautiful rain forest perched on a hill. The parrots are few because of illegal capturing. Only 300 left in Costa Rica so they made the sanctuary to re-establish the population. They are also doing local education and encouraging people to plant almond trees and collect nuts for the birds. They’ve built nesting boxes for them too! It’s about a mile south of Punta UVA.....you’ll see a sign on the right side of the road as you travel south. Well worth the $20.00 fee!
The Ara project was great! You get to watch the wild green macaws eat, from the canopy. You learn all about how this project has helped increase the green macaw population. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend!
