Animals in tiny cement cages, garbage strewn around, tourists encouraged to sit on top of a tortoise...Paid for a one hour horse ride and got ten minutes and then the horse guide was mad because we didn't tip him....Avoid at all costs

Lot's of activities to do here at a cost for a full day. We only visited the zoo part at a entry of £3.50 per adult For a small area with approximately 10 different animals in the area took about 25 minutes to walk around

We booked through our rep. went with our 2 girls aged 6 and 9. They loved the horse back riding and holding all the animals in the mini zoo. Really nice day out . Lovely friendly staff. Would recommend for a family day out.

The staff are very friendly & helpful, and the scenery is beautiful. However the conditions in the "mini zoo" are appalling. Most of the birds & animals are kept in tiny bare cages full of urine & faeces, with no enrichment , no vegetation & little shade. The misery on the face of the monkeys kept in a bare cage... More

My niece and I wanted to go horseback riding and this place was the perfect place for it. We were able to ride through mountain trails, on the beach and were able to experience a very authentic Cuban meal after the ride. When our meal was over we were treated to a visit of the gardens where the farmer treated... More

The overall experience was pretty neat. Visited the zoo, complete with a 40+ year old tortoise, and a couple of crocodiles. Took a ride on a wagon drawn by oxen and had a delicious lunch at the open air restaurant. The highlight was a beautiful Cuban Emerald Hummingbird, so close, I could have reached out and touched it.

I have waited a long time to write this review of the best fishing tour in Holguin area... yes you can go fishing for marlin and their friends but very few actually have a day like I enjoyed for such a reasonable price... get your rep in the hotel to make your reservations... the tour operators don't include this in...
