    A very nice place to visit in Tabasco, the kids enjoyed the location and the proximity of different wild animals makes this a perfect 1 day outing.  more »

    It is very near the airport. I would recommend this place to go with kids, but it is also very nice for adults. The feedstuffs are well-maintained and protected. INDISPENSABLE the repellent of mosquitoes, although you can buy it in place. There is a tour through the jungle where you see a jaguar, monkeys, flora. There are too many mosquitoes, impossible being there without repellent. The snack is cheap and you can spend a very nice time. There are many of jungle animals as is Savannah. Highly recommended for the contact with the animals.
