Took the family there for a Sat. visit

We had a great time walked around took the tractor driven train around the park. Though we are not fluent in Spanish the guides did an excellent job trying to describe all to us.

It was a wonderful experience with lots of big spaces for the animals. We were there just after the epiphany and the 3 kings were there and they served Rouska de Reyes cake to everyone. It did rain and we were a bit frightened when a tree came tumbling down. My friend had some difficulty getting in the tram but... More

Yumka is going down... You can go if it's your first time just to know a new place, please don't expect too much; it's not like advertising says.

it is a very well kept zoo and very innovative as well; however, it includes fauna from other parts of the world, when you would expect to see the local fauna which is quite extensive.

This attraction is 15 minutes away from the city and just about 5 minutes from the airport. The tour is in Spanish so if you don't speak the language you will have to enjoy just a walk in nature sans explanation. The tour starts with a walk through the woods that leads you to a safari truck. This takes you... More

We enjoyed the walk in the jungle and saw several animals. It is in Spanish so we missed the explanations. A lot of the platforms were roped off so we didn't get to look for manatees or hippos for example. The ride on the tram was fine and he went slow and stopped once so people could take pictures. When... More
