Travel by air-conditioned coach on a 40-minute ride to the island of Baru. Sit back and enjoy the scenery and view the growing industrial area around Cartagena.

You’re headed to the National Aviary -- one of the finest aviaries in the world, renowned for housing a very high number of species. Colombia boasts the world’s greatest bird diversity, with more than 1,900 species, and the National Aviary reflects this with an important cross-section of this variety. Set out to explore the different bird observation stations arranged by habitat and species:

The Tropical Forest -- macaws, Harpy eagles, tangaras and other species as well as different kinds of palms, waterfalls and macaque monkeys

Coastlines & Mangroves -- the habitat of different kind of ducks, cormorants and pelicans

Coastline -- herons, doves, storks and the migrating teals

The Desert Station -- an environment where cardinals, mockingbirds and partridges live

The Andean Region -- owls, eagles and the famous Andean condor -- king of the mountains

Surrounded by birds, beautiful landscapes, palm trees and waterfalls, you will have time to enjoy a beverage or delicious Colombian coffee before the ride back to Cartagena.


Travel time to the National Aviary is 45 minutes each way.
