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.

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

Really great trip. The staff clearly have the best interests of the animals at heart. Our guide Yary was fantastic and she had lots of information on all the rescued animals. The little monkey encounter at the end was adorable too. Highly recommended!

Amazing sanctuary well worth a visit… do the ATvs and Cenotes whilst you’re there. Brilliant half day out!

What a wonderful experience! And our guide, Obniel, was great!
