Trip Planner: South America / Bolivia / Santa Cruz Department / Samaipata / Zoos & Aquariums / Refugio Zoologico
Primarily a volunteer-run rescue center for endangered animals, Refugio Zoologico offers the opportunity to see animals in ethical captivity in a family-friendly environment. Observe several varieties of birds, monkeys, and big cats at the refuge, with the chance to have a more direct interaction with a select few of the animals. While some may be disappointed by the refuge's relatively small size compared to other zoos, it is important to remember that this is primarily a shelter. Plan to see Refugio Zoologico and other attractions that appeal to you using our Samaipata vacation planner.
