  • 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.
