We went to Aluxes Ecoparque during the week on our second day in Palenque. We are both keen travellers & have experienced various types of 'conservation' parks in the world through Asia & Africa. This was the first one we went to in Central America....More
After a long and very uncomfortable trip to Yaxchilan and Bonampak we decided to ditch plans to go to Agustin Azul and do this eco park instead.
We arrived at 9am and had a great 2 hours walking around the trails and seeing all the...More
The park is beautiful. You walk through the jungle and you can see a lot of animals. BUT the informations are missing. Why are the animals there? What happened to them? Some animals didn‘t looked happy, especially the eagles: way too small cages. The animals...More
If you like to see wildlife of the area, it is interesting to visit. The place is well kept.
The kids did not like to see captive animals, and the experience was not fun or nice for them.
If you are a true animal lover...More
Our hotel suggested we visit as we had a free morning in our schedule. We had a wonderful time! The paths are very well laid out, with plenty of animals and birds to see in beautiful surroundings. The entrance fee of 150 pesos is well...More
We came here yesterday. It's pretty well laid out. Some interesting displays, signage is on English as well. Sad to see the big cats there. Not sure of their story but their enclosures should be larger. It was 150 pesos entrance fee/per person. The animals...More

Absolutely brilliant way to spend a few hours. Lovely staff, incredible surroundings, amazingly diverse wildlife largely in their natural habitat and/or rescued and in recovery. A truly wonderful place and well worth a visit.

I think the tours start at 5 or 6 pm. You do need to make a reservation for them, and they won't do the tour for under 6 people usually. To make a reservation, call them or stop by during regular hours. We made ours for the same day without a problem. I think the tour was under $15 a person and it was fantastic - you get to feed the manatees and crocodiles as part of the tour, something that costs extra during the day. Our tour guide only spoke Spanish but I think you can get an English tour guide if you ask (we speak Spanish). Definitely do it if you get a chance.
