We have gone several times to Faunia. The last time we renewed our annual pass. And that was a test of patience. More than 2 hours in two queues, the first with only 4-5 people before us, and the second may be 6-7. Personnel is so slow that the renewal was really a big waste of time. Inside, we found... More

we arrived just after 11am & easily kept busy till after 4.30pm with a 2 year old even though it was a quiet day with no shows going on. The range of animals is impressive, with lots of information about them. The varied habitat areas were great. The animals were all relaxed & it was lovely to see them in... More

Not a lot of big animals but each exhibit is designed to make adults and children enter into the habitat of the animals. In some cases you can walk with the animals. Best: Penguin habitat and the Jungle!

Faunia is no regular zoo. The animals are shown in their natural habitats and there are many rare species that you don't usually see. The park is very well organized. I especially liked the info boards - it can take you more than 5 hours to go through all the information about the animals held there. I also enjoyed the... More

The park is not sign posted from the metro station which is a little confusing but it wasn't far when we asked for directions.

Faunia is a great experience. We had our son's 7th birthday party there and the kids had a lot of fun. The venom attraction and the "jungle" are the ones we liked most, as well as the sea lion show. Food is ok, typical fast food from a park. To find it, put in your GPS Avenida de las Comunidades,... More

Faunia is quite hard to find (even by car), and you do need to book online in advance otherwise it's quite pricey, but it's well worth a visit. The penguin attraction is huge, with a great range of different penguins (far, far better than the London Aquarium). The venom attraction has the largest display of poisonous snakes, spiders and frogs... More
