The big beautiful flowers and trees was very cool.
There were only a few animals and they were in cages not natural settings.
It was interesting to see the volcanic rocks and landscape.

I was extremely disturbed after visiting. The coyotes, pigs, large birds and jaguars were the worst. Pacing with dead eyes in disgusting conditions. This place should rethink their purpose and set free or put down these beautiful but trapped creatures.

I went to this zoo/ animal sanctuary with my husband and our 11 year old. We enjoyed it a lot and was pleasantly surprised with how large it was and the number of animals that were there. Every time we thought we were finished there was another section. It was sometimes challenging to figure out where to go next, but we made it through. Hopefully we didn’t skip any animals. The enclosures and the zoo itself were very clean. The scenery was absolutely beautiful! The prices were great. For 3 of us it was less than half the cost of one ticket at our local zoo. We were happy to support an animal sanctuary.

It’s a group of disparate animals in mainly old antiquated cages, the exception being the Spider monkeys. There’s no attempt at education or conservation and the bigger mammals just pace relentlessly. Bizarrely there’s a large chicken section and the eggs are on sale at reception. There’s also a large plants for sale section.

If you want to do some good then go and see Jasón at the Square Trees Nature trail who has a few Golden Frogs and a desire to preserve them.

Golden frogs were supposed to he here but ha e move to another facility in town (ask your concierge for details of new location). The zoo is mostly birds and run down. Needs lots of work.

The location is very nice but the zoo itself a bit suffering and in need of some update. There are so many colorful birds kids will definitely enjoy as well as the playful monkeys. A bit difficult to navigate as if you don`t pay attention you can easily skip some of the animals enclosures. We also got inside an area in reconstruction where they had some rescued animals that required more attention like a baby slot.
They also sell plants and have an orchid designated area that was closed when we were there.
I think people should support them in rescue effort and don`t just go for the golden frogs ... btw the frogs would be also in a kind of "cage" if there would still be there no?...

If you're used to the zoos in our backyard, stop by this beautiful nature-surrounded attraction while at El Valle in Anton, Panama. Quite a different experience with a good variety in a setting that is peaceful and entertaining. Clean bathrooms. Good value.

Went as part of a tour from the resort. Located in picturesque Anton Valley, surrounded by an ancient volcanic rim. Reported to be 94 different species of animals on site. A good number of animals have been rescued, including the Jaguars. I can agree with another reviewer that the monkeys craved touching and didn't want food. Are some of the cages on the small side? Yes, but many aren't bad or much different thin in larger North American zoos. And overall the zoo was clean and seemed pretty well kept. But if you don;t like seeing animals in cages, and I'm not a big fan of that, it might be best to skip. But younger kids will most likely enjoy it.,
