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.

  • A fun activity to do with children in Santiago, Chile. The site is the reproduction of a tropical forest in some moments we can touch the animals. It's not a huge place, but it has its charms and differentials. Recommend a stroll around this "zoo" that is located inside the Parque Araucano.
