Experience a Macaws and Parrots show at Chuncho Clay Lick

We will visit the spectacular Chuncho clay- lick, the largest in the world, with the three major species of macaws getting together at the same time, and many varieties of parrots, hundreds of parrots come together to eat clay, a special and unique show that is only found in this part of the planet.
2 days and 1 night staying at a lodge and waking up early to go to see the birds its just more than enough. then we highly recomend you to extend the tour to sandoval lake.


One of the most spectacular show of macaws is at a clay lick, today thanks to improved roads and better vehicles we can combine the biggest and most active macaws clay lick of all.
