I really recommend this place, especially if you have kids! I loved to take photos of the reptiles and plants of the garden. The director is very competent and you can ask him whatever you like: he will be please to chat with you!
We visited El Serpentario as a shore excursion while on an Un Cruise vacation. After hearing a talk about the center's mission and seeing and holding some lizards and a tarantula, we walked around the grounds and observed more reptiles and amphibians, bunnies, birds, and more. It was a very interesting way to spend an hour or so.
Small, unglitzy display of turles, birds, lizards and more. Great fun to go into the bird house and have a dozen small parrots sit on your arm to eat from the seed cup. The biggest treat was to feed sliced gourd to the giant tortoises. Suddenly they're moving and those beaky mouths are sharp and faster than you'd expect. A... 更多
We took a Mexico Riviera cruise and El Serpentario De La Paz was offered as a 'shore excursion'. This animal sanctuary is not up to the standards most of us would expect. The animals are rescued and cared for, but it would be nice if improvements could be made (lack of money?) Those who run El Serpentario and the many... 更多
We went with a small group from our Un-Cruise adventure ship. This is a nice small center that we were told was mostly of local Baja CA Sur reptiles and birds but there were also several other species that are not local there too. There are several enclosures with larger reptiles and then a building with lots of small aquarium... 更多
Although I think we paid the tourist price and not the local price,it was worth it. For a $100 pesos each we fed hundreds of baby turtles, observed the alpha dance of giant turtles, fed birds and rabbits from the palms of our hands, and were mesmerized by serpents of all size and color. We lost track of time and... 更多
A visit to the Serpentario was recommended by some La Paz friends. A little hard to find, even if you use a map, but worth it. An outdoor aviary with native birds, an outdoor terrarium for turtles, and, of course, separate terrariums for the native reptiles. Appears to be operated on a shoestring, but very well done.
Worthwhile place to visit while in La Paz. It's south of town in a quiet residential area and it's run by volunteers. Interesting snakes, birds and insects. The volunteers will bring out snakes for people to handle as well as the tarantula. There is also a bird aviary where you can go in and feed the birds from your hand.
Great educational facility, with activities for all ages. I have lived among Tarantulas for 20 years and had a new experience of a live one on my hand and arm. I liked learning about the different endemic species found in Baja California. While I am not a zoo person I found El Serpentario De La Paz animals to be well... 更多
You can feed the turtles, pet the rabbits, talk to the parrots, have a staring contest with an owl or two as well as check out the dozens of snakes, lizards and fish tanks. They even have an enormous iguana. The entrance fee is only $100 pesos, (about $8 CDN) a good value.
