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.

I was looking to give my partner a special tour for his birthday; privacy, punctuality and great knowledge of our guide Axel, I would recommend this tour for couples; I was looking for a special tour for my gf's birthday; privacy, punctuality and a great knowledge from Axel our guide, I recommend this tour for couple trips.

We had a great time! Only issue was the location I selected on the map was not the location we got picked up at but they made it right and after that we had no issues at all. We got to swim with turtles and fish - there were stingrays but the water was too murky to see them. The cenote was an amazing experience too!

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

On time was there before I arrived very nice the company made sure to triple check my info :)
