  • I found this place by chance returning from the archaeological site of Palenque. To my surprise, it is a very beautiful place, where they have very well-tended animals. In this place, I had the opportunity to see Scarlet macaws at liberty and it turned out to be that most of the animals sheltered there are rescued. The prices are affordable. The only thing I disapprove is the use of crocodile hatchlings to take the picture.

  • Wonderful place! Staff is kind and approachable and the stories behind each rescued animal heartbreaking and inspiring. Must visit!!
  • 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
  • We had the opportunity to get to know the Park a few days ago and it was a unique experience, the size of the Park and the variety of animals is incredible really. Really is highly recommended and I hope that people who read this are encouraged to visit it and thus financially support to keep it standing, the cost is $100 Mexican pesos and there is done to those expensive but I think that feed as many animals and keep them hygienic is a monumental task that does not compare to the cost of the entry. Congratulations to hosts who treated us very well.
