It's a great place for animal lovers. The turtles are simply amazing, we spent i guess three hours in their area and we also learned a lot about them. Also interesting to see how crocodiles are fed.

We loved the turtles. You can easily spend a few hours here. There is so much to see: monkeys, alligators, deer... Take a stroll though the walking path, it's like walking through the jungle. Don't forget to put on sun creme and bug spray.

This is a very small park, so it won't be really needed. Will entail some walk but not like what big national parks have. Casela National Park will need the assistance you are asking about, since that is a big national park
