We loved this place. For 100 pesos entrance fee you get to see a large variety of animals. What we liked in particular was that you always have to walk a bit through some fauna between the enclosures which decreased the sensory overload and allowed...More

This animal sanctuary is wonderful and I cannot recommend it enough. It is a rehabilitation centre for injured and lost animals to restore them to health and release them back to the wildlife. As such I feel like my entrance money will be put to...More
