We visited this reserve/park and were very impressed with the range of facilities for the native wildlife. There is a very large butterfly enclosure, an enormous aviary and an enclosure for monkeys under construction. As well, there are swimming pools for all ages so it is easy to see why the park is such an attraction for the locals on... More

We (four adults) had been to Santa Cruz multiple times and had one day to kill in the area. We heard Guembé was great. We started by exploring the monkey, butterfly, spider, bird, and other animal enclosures. The spider monkeys are super cool. The butterflies are lovely. You can get right up close to huge colorful parrots (watch out, some... More

Very beautiful park, great for a day trip from Santa Cruz! Beautiful pools, good meals, very beautiful. The only disadvantage is that it's quite expensive.

Been here every year in January and am not happy about the downhill changes. The prices have actually doubled. Service is not what was once expected. I see they are building a monkey attraction to which I'm not too happy about. I have been recommended to other attractions that I will definitely substitute this for.

The food is expensive! At least if you get a hamburger think twice, the patty comes from the supermarket and it's a totally bad quality burger for 5 dollars. I suggest you get a really good breakfast before you go in and grab your own water!

Fun in the pool for every age level! Many many sandy bottom pools with water slides, multi-colored night lighting, shady spots. Great place to cool off in the hot Bolivian heat. The museums, aviary, butterfly houses were fascinating for grandchildren and adults. Overnight accommodations were very comfortable. All activities on the property within walking distance of your room. Please remember... More

Great place to spend a day but it also has now a hotel to stay for more than a day. Special for nature lovers just make sure to bring enough repellent and sunblock

This is a great place to spend a day while in Santa Cruz. The park is beautiful and the pools are very nice. Take bug spray, though...the mosquitos were out of control.

A wonderful, peaceful & educational day in nature. Wandering through the butterfly house, interesting talks & some of the most peaceful moments strolling around the gardens. Bird enclosure was delightful & the birds are often close enough for some terrific photos. A lovely couple of eateries on site too for lunch.
