This park is advertised as showing animals and birds in their natural environment. It does have some sort of mangrove areas and natural forestry. The animals were in tiny exposures, some pack/ herd animals were alone. One poor otter swam round and round with no...More

Guayaquil is a very big city, using the system is very complicated if you are going to be a couple of days, so I recommend using a taxi to go to distant places, such as this park. From the center the taxi costs $ 4.00...More

The chapel is all wood and beautiful. The park is a zoo, but if you haven't seen the animals in the wild, it's worth a look. Amazing tropical macaws, wings clipped so they won't fly. Jorge is a terrific guide.

Spent an enjoyable few hours here. We especially enjoyed the beautiful Ecuadorean birds. Well kept and well set out. Go if you have a spare few hours!

Adjacent to Hotel del Parque. A great park to spend the Sunday afternoon. Animals, walkways, playgrounds, ice cream booths, cultural showrooms, traditional buildings, train carriages etc etc. Loved it!

We had a great visit with a free guide (who spoke excellent English and who worked for the park). We strongly recommend visiting if you have 1 to 4 hours and are interested in endemic animals, plants and how locals lived (both in the city...More

Hi what you plan sounds good. It would take about 20mins from the airport to the park, and a couple of hours would probably be all you would need to look around. We took the bus but taxis are fairly reasonable if you get the... More
