Quinta Mazatlan, a unique historic adobe mansion, is the McAllen Wing of the World Birding Center under the stewardship of the City of McAllen Parks & Recreation Department. Its mission is to preserve the 1930s adobe estate and the native plants and animals of the Rio Grande Valley, by providing a sanctuary for environmental education, eco-tourism and inspiration to people of all ages. The word 'Quinta' in Spanish translates to a country house, villa or estate and the area was originally surrounded by grapefruit orchards when the home was built in the 1930s. The word 'Mazatlan' has an ancient Indian translation in Mexico meaning 'Land of the Deer' and the name was inspired by the Spanish architecture of the City of Mazatlan area in Mexico which was frequented by the original owners. The admission rates are: Adults: $3.00. Seniors and Children 12 and under: $2.00.
