A small array of snakes - quite interesting to see the differences between some of the venomous and non-venomous varieties. A couple of other animals there but nothing too exciting. A little run down and not easy to find - you have to park at...More

This place was very small and they only had like 15 snakes. The snakes were in tanks that you could barely see through, so the glass maybe needs to be cleaned more often. They did have one snake out that you can touch and take...More

Not worth the entrance fee ($17 for 2 adults, 3 kids and one free toddler). Couldn't keep the attention of my young kids for more than 15 minutes, and they were more intrigued with the swings than the exhibits. It has around 20 tanks with...More

The way to here is nice. The place is verry small. You can make picture with a snake on you. But 4$ is verry much for that about 15 snakes there

Yes, maybe it's not fancy or big but their work rescuing wildlife and their educational mission is what has won my heart. You will get to learn about Panamanian snakes and the guides are all very knowledgeable. But if you are in for a treat...More

Being a snake keeper myself Serpentario wasn't impressive to me but that doesn't mean it may not be impressive to someone who hasn't seen snakes before or is super siked about holding a snake. About dozen or so species of reptiles can be seen in...More

I'm an animal and creature lover so I don't want to write a big negative review of this place. All I will say is that it's very small, the staff were rude to us and I would not visit again. Their idea of rescue didn't...More

Hopefully we are moving away from zoos in the future unless they are to be designed with the animals happiness in mind. The snakes, turtle and caymans were interesting, but knowing that they live the way they do (unstimulated, lonely and dying) for our entertainment...More
