Directions to Animaya
Animaya is located in Caucel, not far from the city of Merida. It has a nice landscape and big open spaces. The first you'll see is the huge 'estela maya', an observation tower. You can get on it and get a nice view of the whole zoo before you walk around it. This zoo is relatively new and there is a lot of work and effort to make it a great attraction for both locals and visitors. Animaya is owned by the City Hall and there are different events organized througout the year such as science fairs, races, and other outdoor activities.
There are species such as giraffes, antelopes, deer, peacocks, monkeys, snakes, iguanas and lions. Entrance is free and there is a safari train to ride that shows you around. Animaya is great for people with children or mature travelers that are looking for a place to relax, walking around while looking at the animals.
