Our visit was on a cloudy autumn day as part of a tour and we were well surprised about the variety of species there. It is perfect for families.

It is so sad the conditions of the birds and other animals there. It needs more attention, more care. The park for kids on the other hand is ok, also if you plan a picnic in family.

Some of the animals are in really small cages without any activities. You can see all the animals on a slow 1h walk through the reserva. There's a small cafe where you can buy snacks and drinks. We did not walk on top of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, so cannot tell anything about that.

It is a well run reserve, just average in terms of how it is laid out. But of course it has quite a number of Uruguayan wildlife species, and a good place to see it all in one. It was a bit run down when I was there it might have changed for the better or maybe not...
