“Same thing”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

They have some snakes, but the instalations are the same, no improvements so far. The people they have there have the knowledge and the speech is very interesting.

“unreliable opening hours”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

I was there - but unfortunately : it was not open - nobody could tell me whether or not the owners would show up... (as it was claimed they "show up when they want" by one of the neighbours)

“Awesome”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

This was a great little place to check out some native snake species, and the owner Mario gives a wonderful tour of the snakes. You can also see tarantulas and scorpions, which Mario explains about their importance in Panama. He speaks Spanish and English, and is very passionate about the wildlife conservation in Panama. A must for animal lovers!

“Interesting”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

This place was a habitat for snakes and spiders and turtles. Location was unbelievable, beautiful trail getting there. It was raining so the ground was quite wet so it made walking around difficult. The gentleman who runs it spoke english and spanish so he was able to explain about the snakes and where they come from. It looked like there were some interesting things to see if the weather would have been better. Fun just walking to it.

“Very small, but packed with snakes”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

Being a reptile fanatic, I was excited to see what was in here, but also knew what I would probably be in for. It is a small place, the cages aren't perfect, and the snakes seemed like they were most likely plucked from the area. The owner was there and fed several snakes for us and an interpreter explained many of the biofacts they had available. They took out a snake for us to pet as well. It was a cool place, but don't expect the reptile house at the Bronx Zoo.
