Fodor's Expert Review Ara Manzanillo
Puerto Viejo de Talamanca Zoo/Aquarium
An ambitious project begun three decades ago has slowly improved the survival prospects for the once-endangered great green (Ara ambiguus) and scarlet macaws (Ara macao). A daily 3 pm tour of the field station here acquaints you with the breeding and reintroduction into the wild of these colorful birds. Advance reservations are required.
