“About to close down”
Review of Amazonia - CLOSED

Reviewed June 20, 2008

We didn't realise this place is on the verge of closure (according to the lady running it she and the animals are moving to the north of the island next month). She only charged us 7 Euros but there were hardly any animals there to see and the cactus garden, which has clearly been lovely and well cared for was in need a of a good water.
We saw one large lizard or monitor, one rabbit, several ducks, an emu and two pot bellied pigs which looked underfed. There was a bat cave, and in the Amazonia dome there was a peacock, a small exotic bird and no butterflies.
Through a locked gate I could see a monkey in its small cage, rattling the bars, it looked hot and distressed.
The owner is clearly about to shut up shop, but why let people in when there is nothing to see? I hope the facilities for the animals and birds are better where she is moving to. Apparently there is to be a nightclub in its place so I don't know if the park is moving willingly or if they have been told to go.
Don't bother until it has been established in its new home, and then I would be cautious about the animal welfare.

The anti-thesis of Loro Parque, this amateur collection of animals is quite simply a hole. Rare creatures like rabbits and pigs kept in the same pen. Terrapins lounging in putrid, stagnant water. A 16ft python kept in a unheated 6ft glass-box bordering on animal abuse which is set to worsen as no visitors means no money.
Please don't waste your time or keep it running by paying the entrance fee.

Ar first, the 15 euro entrance fee sounded a bit steep, but you are immediately face to face with some of the more exotic birds and lizards. well laid out and you can walk around at your own pace. Take the road from Guava towards Los Cristianos

A great way to spend two hours. There are several natural habitats to walk though and the animals are very close at hand, so if you don't like lizards and birds, don't go!

There is a bus service from the resorts, but we drove there. It was very quiet and peaceful in April.
