We enjoyed visiting the Reserva very much. It is nice and big. It took us about two hours to see everything - more than we expected. It was quite hot, but you can take breaks along the way. I definitely recommend going.

Super nice people, friendly and helpful. The Zoo is rustic which is part of it's charm. There are several hiking paths that take you to different areas with animals. The Leopards are incredible. The Puma looks super powerful.

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...More

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...More
