Accidentally stumbled across Parque on our drive back from Naucaya waterfalls. Lots of snakes , lizards, turtles, and a Cayman Croc. Beautiful grounds tucked away off the beaten path. Few people as we went about an hour before closing time. Well worth the stop!

I was glad to see that the animals seem well cared for and the habitats are spacious, clean, and tailored to the animal's needs. Bring good walking shoes because it can be muddy in areas.

Many varieties of reptiles to see from snakes to tortoises. Nice day trip if you like these types of animals. Footpaths are easy to navigate and is a short drive from the coast. Ample parking and the hosts are very friendly.
