We took a couple hours to stop in El Serpentario and were delighted to find a vast array of rattlesnakes, boas, pythons and iguanas! Also turtles, frogs and an aviary full of birds and bunnies! What a great visit and cool stop! The birds and bunnies could also be hand fed for a donation.
We mentioned to a local that we hoped to visit the Serpentario, and she told us to skip it. My husband, our 18 year old daughter, and I went anyway and WE HAD THE BEST TIME! The admission was very cheap, and little dishes of food for the animals were 5 pesos each. The place is well-laid out with uneven... 更多
We were greeted by wild parrots who sounded as though they were laughing up in the palm trees. The grounds are covered with trees and flowers and the exhibits were well cared for. The reptiles and birds looked healthy and there was a wide variety to see. The aviary also had content rabbits lounging around. We spent about an hour... 更多
We are staying in La Paz for awhile and read about El Serpentario. We decided to visit and really enjoyed it. The staff are very friendly and the animals seem to be very well cared for. Everything was clean and we really enjoyed the birds/rabbits area where you can go in and you are right with them. And they have... 更多
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
