“The best 10 euros you will spend!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Everyone at the hotel were recommending a visit here and we were not disappointed. It cost 5 euros in a taxi to get there from Los Cristianos and 10 euros entry fee for adults and 5 euros for kids and was well worth it.
You can get up close to the animals and feed them, 3 euros for a pack of fruit and veg and they take the food gently from you or throw away what they dont want!
Well worth a visit.

“Great Day Out”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

This little known off the beaten-track park was brilliant. My wife and I are in our mid 50's but we we're like big kids when we arrived being able to have 'hands-on' with the monkeys and parrots. A trip well worth doing.

“Could have been better”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Got there in the afternoon, we were told that the monkeys were probably pretty full, so we only bought one tub of monkey food.We walked through the enclosures, and it didn't seem like that there were that many that had monkeys that you could interact with anyway. They weren't interested in the food. Most of the small monkeys were in glass enclosures, so you couldn't feed them. The chimps seemed pretty bored/depressed and some other monkeys seemed a bit over crowded in the space that they had.

At the end of the park there was a single baboon who started showing aggressive behaviour as soon as we got with 15 yards, pacing and baring teeth etc. Overall, we left feeling that though the staff probably cared for the animals, the conditions weren't ideal. Not sure that it was best time of day to visit, or this would appeal to appeal to people who care about animal welfare.
