  • At the insistent request of my grandchildren, wanted to know some zoos including those of Puyo, first went to the Tarqui and later to others.

  • Amazing!... very nice and the animals are well cared above all!... What if I recommend wearing shoes with styled to prevent slipping, there is a part of the path that is very inclined and can cause falls, don't go with slippery shoes or flip flops. That's my recommendation, for the rest is interesting!...

  • This was one of my favorite parts about visiting Equador. This refuge is full of animals that were kept illegally and have been rescued. They have a number of cats, birds, monkeys, and some unique animals to the region. It only costs a dollar or two for the entrance fee.
  • Sad to see how poorly these animals were treated before being rescued, good to see them doing better now.
  • cute zoo for the whole family. It has swimming pools and super good parriyadas
