It was fantastic to see how they are so committed to the animals. I do find it a pity that everyone has to hand over their mobile phone the moment we enter the monkeys, and then are not allowed to take nice pictures. You can then buy the photos at high prices. The entrance is already expensive enough, it is a pity that you are not allowed to take a photo yourself. For the rest you were allowed to take pictures of everything. The animals are fine! it's nice to see

Fantastic :) The animals and the staff really work with a lot of heart and soul here. Of course it is ultimately a zoo with a photo attraction, but it was a lot of fun and the cenote is also excellent. Transportation is also available for $10 round trip. In short: definitely book

We had been there with our little daughter (1.5 years old) and drove there with a rental car. It is very well signposted and can be found accordingly. The tour was great, our daughter loved the monkeys and other animals. The guide explained to us where the animals come from and what they have experienced. Every employee warmly walks around with the animals, cleaning is also done during opening hours. We are accompanied by a photographer who took photos of us with the animals. A great day out for the whole family that only takes a few hours.
