“best park ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

This park is worth the detour. It is huge (visit by car) and the animals are semi-free, healthy in a beautifull nautral mountain park. Great shows and reptilarium. I really loved this place, and spent all day there. Adults and children adored it because of the closeness of the animals

“A must visit if you have a car!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Just 15 minutes on the main road out from Santander you'll find this amazing wildlife park. The 'enclosures' are huge and the animals are quite sociable (giraffes and ostriches come to eat grass and weeds out your hands). You can exit the park and re-enter as many times as you like so drive out the east exit to the small village, Cabarceno for some lunch and a glass of wine before seeing the rest of the park.

“Fantastic zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We had a great day out here. The setting is as interesting as the animals. The area is beautiful and the park is in the hills, so from some of the higher areas there are spectacular views.The place is huge and you have to drive between the animal enclosures. The animals have so much room to move around and we didn't see one animal who was pacing like i've seen in other zoos. There's a large selection of species and the gorillas are amazing!!!! Kids under 6 are free but i thought the adult tickets were a little expensive at 24 euros each, it's still worth a visit though.

“Animals from around the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The park is good for children as it has elephants, tigers, and lions and many more animals to view. It is not of much interest to adults.

“The best place ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

I don't normally zoos, but this is not a zoo, it is an amazing place with real created landscapes for the animals. They hace plenty space and there is no concrete like in the rest of the zoos. It is recommended to use the car for the long distance between some of the habitats.
