The serpentarium itself is a simple affair, a single small building with less than a dozen glass enclosures displaying some of the local venomous and non-venomous snakes. It is manned by Mario, the owner, and some volunteers. Unfortunately, when I visited on a Sunday, it...More

We didn't visit the Serpentario proper, but the owner, Mario Urriola, runs birdwatching tours, and night tours, through the Serpentario. We did both. Mario was extremely knowledgeable about all El Valle animals. On our morning bird walk, we saw over forty species of birds. Mario...More

We made an effort to get to this place because we thought my 12 year old son would enjoy it. The most impressive thing about it is a giant carved wooden snake at the entrance. When we got there, there was a guy holding a...More

By visiting the serpentarium you are supporting the organisation which rehomes and relocates some abandoned pets/reptiles. The tour is very educational and would be a great introduction to the kinds of species you might come across if you're hiking locally as many of the snakes...More

We had a good time here looking and learning about all the reptiles they had. My son was allowed to touch and carry snakes and we all learned plenty form the experience.

Learned about the local snakes and other critters from a volunteer from Florida. Got a couple of good pointers with respect to identification of poisonous snakes. A little disappointed in the number of species on display.
