Great little place to check out with the family. Many animals on site and a good place to check-out in Villahermosa.

A simple safari, but well worth the money... we will go back... It was a great park for our family of six to go and spend some time together.

The tour is split half and half... More

Yumka park was my first zoo experience (imagine I am 55). It was impactant to see animals that i saw in books or magazines. The visit is a "must do" in villahermosa.
