4.7/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web
See Mexican wildlife up close in a natural setting when you visit Aluxes Ecoparque. The zoo, which was placed strategically to be surrounded by the Palenque National Park, houses many types of animals indigenous to South America, including jaguars, ocelots, parrots, and several kinds of monkeys. Many of the animals here come from poaching rings on the illegal animal trade market. A visit to Aluxes Ecoparque represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Palenque vacation route planner to plot your vacation.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in the park. You can see plenty of regional wild life (Jaguars, turtles, crocodiles, birds-and also many mosquitos ;-) ) from very close without having the impression that t...  read more »
  • A small zoo! But don mission is to welcome pets injured or sick in order to release them. So only animals that live in the jungle of Chiapas. There are about several and we were pleasantly surprised by the diversity and the length of the route (we expected a lot less). To walk the trails in being flown by volleys of puffins in freedom (nourrits by the Park in order to reintroduce them in the regions) was very nice! We enjoyed it so much that we have give more than the admission ticket on the way out as a gift. Worth and essential if you have children!

  • If you need a break from the ruins, this is the place to go. Lots different animals to see, and they don't appear to be kept in inhumane, zoo-like conditions. Highly recommend feeding the manatees! They are ridiculous creatures!
  • We did the night tour and although it was in spanish we had a really good experience. Our guide was a really well educated biologist and knew so many details about the different species. It was just 4 of us and him, night set in, we fed manates and crocodiles and got to see the cats in action. All in all the best ecoparque tour ever!
  • Excelente y muy lindo lugar
  • A beautiful place, you can not leave without visiting it, I loved it, is an Echo Park which seeks that the animals are at home. And do not miss the photos with the Scarlet macaws. Supports the conservation

  • The place is excellent and equal attention, are very friendly with the explanation but the cost was $100 pesos, I find it a little expensive... long time I went and was at $75 and think that therefore I didn't see many people. I think that if people visiting palenque and which are from there go down him a little more often.
