  • We didn’t read about this in our guidebooks but just stumbled upon it. One of the best days in our trip so far. Thank you to the older gentleman who walked with us some of the way and told us about the animals. His passion for wildlife and conservation was infectious. The signs are in English as well as Spanish and really well set out. A must see when in Palenque.
  • One of our best experiences in Palenque and Mexico in general. The place is fantastic and their work to support vulnerable animals is of great importance. This is not a typical zoo as animals are in their natural habitats and some of them roam free around you!! Walking the trail and being in the jungle was equally exciting as seeing animals and birds. Thanks Aluxes for the memories and for the work you have been doing.
  • Small independently run reserve, only 100$ mexican pesos to enter. We loved it, it's a nice walk around, interesting animals, some due to be released back into the wild, others rescued and well looked after. The black panther my favourite. Definitely worth a visit
  • Wonderful place with good cause. Lots of pretty animals. You feel like in the wild, it's quiet and so natural. The animals obviously have a good care. Highly recommend it.
  • The night tour was amazing. Great value for money. You'll see so many animals.
