“A Living, Breathing Tribute..."”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2011

This place is visually and intellectually stunning. We actually arrived before they opened, and one of their awesome team, Noe Vargas, came forward to welcome us. He introduced us to the Director, Jean Louis Lacaille Muzquiz. The two of them took us on a detailed tour of the facility, which includes no less than three museums. The architecture, the detail, and the bio/ecological study here is beyond what I've seen in major cities such as Atlanta. The centerpiece is a beautifully tiled cistern, and the ambient flora acts as an accent to the magnificent buildings nestled against the mountain. We were lucky enough to meet the year old rescue - a jaguar cub named Cie. I didn't want to leave...
