Tarqui is a little gem of a place run by a super committed family that really invest themselves into the park. We volunteered here for two weeks and loved every minute, despite the work being hard.
For the day visitor, the park has a great array of animals: large felines (jaguars, ocelots, pumas, margay), rare birds, monkeys, capybara, tapirs, peccaries, cabeza de mattes, caimans and much more. The enclosures are better sized than in many European zoos and incorporate the natural environment whilst allowing you to get pretty close to the animals.The entrance fee is low, so this is great value and we'd encourage people to donate a little extra to help the animals.
The park also has a pool and restaurant attached which buzzes with locals at the weekend, in a laid back and family atmosphere.
Worth a visit, a donation or a stint as a volunteer!
