  • Very nice place, did the night tour to feed them to animals. It was quite an experience with the children enjoyed it. Our guide was a well prepared vet with a great love for animals. I congratulate you for the work of preservation on the Scarlet Macaw.

  • Beautifully landscaped Zoo with animals rescued from the illegal pet trade. Super easy to reach and entry is for a good cause! Absolutely recommended!

  • We were a group of 12 friends and the quality of the service was very good, starting because they went to our hotel to collect the visit. Guadalupe received us and his knowledge and delivery by the preservation of the forest and its wildlife we caught. Night visit is unique, the night was starry and we could hear and see the jungle. To feed the manatees and crocodiles is an experience that can be seldom. I recommend it 100%. Next time I would like to a daytime visit, I'm sure that it must be totally different way of life the jungle, since in the night we could not see Scarlet macaws and other birds.

  • 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.
