Selva Viva, Santiago

4.3
#4 of 10 in Zoos & Aquariums in Chile
Get up close to a number of tropical animal species in simulated rainforest settings at Selva Viva. Animals at the amusement park include snakes, chameleons, lizards, toucans, caimen, and butterflies. You can take a Spanish tour through the amusement park, although some guides also speak English. That said, when it comes to feeding toucans, or acquainting yourself with various species of butterfly inside the greenhouse, language hardly seems to matter.

    I came with my two small children and many expectations. All were met, the place is a piece of forest in the heart of the city, animals, especially birds, walk free by the place, guides are professional, with a clear taste for what they do, as well as have a lot of patience with the many children who want to play and ask for everything. 100% recommended for who like of them animals, the ride hard approximately a hour, but varies according to the disposition of them animals, if are quiet and friendly, the experience can prolong is.
