  • There was this night tour, definitely a must. I don't know what else to say, if you like nature like i do, you'll be delighted  more »
  • Aluxes was so great, I went twice in three days! I started with the night tour -- includes feeding manatees, feeding crocodiles, and (if you choose) holding a baby boa constrictor. I went back this mo...  more »
  • It is a beautiful Eco-Park, is a tour where you can see a variety of animals, as soon as you enter you can listen to the parrots talking, they have with Jaguars, manatees, crocodiles, wild boars, monkeys, spiders, howler monkeys and a variety of animals, besides that you can eat certain animals, you can have contact with macaws, giant turtles, feed manatees, the truth is a great option if these in palenque Since the entrance is $100 pesos and is a very good tour, worth a lot, and you take like 2 hours to travel, highly recommended.

  • 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.
