Zoo de Santillana, Santillana del Mar

Get up-close and personal with animals from six different continents at Zoo de Santillana, considered by the World Wildlife Federation to be one of Spain’s top zoos. Covering an area of 6 hectares (14.8 acres), the zoo is home to 37 programs dedicated to breeding endangered species in captivity. Observe the resident animals at close range through daily feeding programs. Travel through the world’s ecosystems by visiting specially-designed habitats including the Tropical Garden, the Quaternary Park, and the Aquaterrium. Grab a bite to eat at the zoo’s cafe, also serving Spanish paella, or bring your own lunch to eat in the picnic area. Prepare appropriately for the weather as the zoo is sizeable and its eating and viewing areas are primarily outdoors. Free parking is available on the grounds of the park.

  • I don't know what people are complaining. They are €20, Yes. But it is private and is very complete. It's all very well marked so you don't miss anything. The brisk walk we did because I missed us over time and were more than two hours. Next time we will go with the girls no doubt because you are going to love.

  • So did not expect me. I thought that it would be more weak being close to Cabárceno but is not so. This well signposted throughout the tour there are a few tracks for q not miss anything. You can enter food from outside and there are areas designated for this purpose. The butterfly and the area of primates is impressive on all the crazy orangutan. If you have youth card holders have a discount of 10 euros, if not adult entry is 20. It takes 2 hours and 45 in see all quietly
