This is the second zoo that I visited in the Merida area. While I was delighted to see large natural pens, I was very disappointed on what little animals or variety that I did actually see. We had a nice stroll and it was a...More

... and so did we. Always ambiguous when it comes to the topic of zoological parks, we quite enjoyed this one due to its open concept with most animals roaming free (more or less). The nice playground and especially the water park were a perfect...More

We visited Anamaya on a warm day, but not too hot. We took a boat ride, Safari ride and rode the elevator to the top of the tower. Not a huge zoo but you do get close to the animals. There's also a nice splash...More

It's not a real big zoo, but it is nice. You want to get there kinda early to get the Safari ride and the boat ride. There is an observation tower when you first come in, which is pretty cool, but go to the right...More

The line is longer than the ride around but very fun and very cool seeing the animals wander around with you in the truck.

I had a lot of fun there. Is a nice place to spend time with the family. Great guided tour (like a safari)! There are food and water vender machines. Recommend to wear sunblock and natural fiber clothes (is a very very hot place)

Take a boat ride or safari bus ride right in where the animals are. Fun! This is a different kind of zoo. Ride the elevator up the tall tower in the middle of the park and you can see for miles!
