TIPS FOR BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE TOUR TO ENJOY IT TO IT’S FULLEST:
BEFORE THE TOUR
Use the restrooms. Make sure that the whole family goes to the toilet to wash their hands and not have an emergency due to overhydration.
Drink water and eat something. Remember that the Riviera Maya is a hot place, so we recommend you take water with you and eat something light before you start, because, for the safety of the animals, taking food with you is not allowed until the tour is over.
Take care of the sun. Keep biodegradable insect repellent and sunscreen on hand, for the safety of the animals, since you will be in contact with them. Wear sunglasses and a hat or cap.
Have your bags, cameras or cell phones ready and secured. Animals are curious creatures and your personal objects could easily fall if you do not have them well attached to you.
DURING THE TOUR
Listen carefully and follow your guides instructions. Do not leave the group or interact without first having the approval of your guide, the animals also have mood swings like us, the guide will tell you what is the correct way to interact with each species.
Keep your senses attentive. Many other species are part of this zoo, from insects to reptiles, but you can also appreciate the native vegetation such as orchids and other exotic plants typical of the tropical climate, so you must open your eyes and stay perceptive so that the adventure is more exciting.
Use your camera or cell phone carefully. To take pictures of your tour in this place, remember to keep a proper distance from the animal, do not use the flash on your camera or your cell phone because this damages the visión of and bothers some species.
AFTER THE TOUR
Wash your hands perfectly. The animals of this place are healthy and well cared for, however, it is important that as soon as you finish the tour, you wash your hands perfectly to avoid any allergic reaction since the species are in contact with the nature that surrounds them.
Run to the cafeteria. Buy a coffee frappé, you have to try it! You can also eat crispy baguettes and fresh salads.
