Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Visit Granja de Avestruces to see the largest ostrich farm in the country. Meet these leggy birds on this family-friendly free-range farm, where other residents include llamas, goats, and horses. Kids can enjoy feeding the animals and burning off some energy on the playground. The ostriches have an organic diet, and the onsite restaurant serves up their eggs as well as their meat (if the thought turns your stomach, just stick with the farm).

  • Good facilities well groomed animals I am struck that offer ostrich farm and ended up with ponies, llamas, goats... Finally explanation basic with inaccuracies. Interesting interaction with animals, especially for children I think high cost for the relationship cost-benefit however, the facilities are spotless restaurant not invited to lunch, so somewhat gloomy, we didn't know about the quality of the food ultimately charge for everything, entrance, parking lot, as a measure for animals, use of some attractions of the Park, etc.

  • It was fun to see ostrich and walk beside them, but Park has no atmosphere, is rather boring, although Carolina who was responsible is a super friendly and knows a lot, I do not think that the problem is she, I rather think that the Park should have other activities or another way to teach the same thing, I think it should be more careful and offer more options

  • The bad treatment. The visit was very heavy and long. When we went to eat at the restaurant, served us food first (some even too meat made and inedible). To then give us drink almost when we had already finished eating.

  • Buen recorrido, experiencia interactiva con Avestruces
  • The experience on the farm with regard to learn about animals, ostriches and other species that is nice and didactic. Too bad restaurant service which are wasting its potential. They have a very poor service, lack of knowledge by people serving there on how to provide the meat of ostrich and Buffalo that are the dishes that represent the farm, no presentation of the dishes, in terms of cooking of the meat not even ask which. The restaurant is managed as a road crossing restaurant, which does not sympathize with the prices on the menu offering. Therefore after the joy and good impression of travel, is the sinsabor of your lousy restaurant

  • Since starting the entry to the site, is a little expensive separate charge parking lot. How second travel is very short and little profitable and at the end we invite you to the restaurant service is very poor... I had to wait a lot of time for the preparation of the dishes and became crude and poorly seasoned. Not recommended

  • It is cool to see the ostriches and the chance to interact with them, as well as seeing the other animals. However it seems a bit short travel to the value of the input (15000).
