Laberinto Tropical

The "Laberinto Tropical" is an ecological park and tourist attraction located in the Palosanos section of Isla Margarita on the road between Los Robles and Asuncion.

The price of admission at the Tropical Labyrinth is 15,000 Bs. for adults and 7,500 Bs. for children. That's about $5 US per adult or $3 for kids depending on the current exchange rate.

We had our usual taxi driver take us to the Laberinto Tropical from our vacation rental at the Bahia Del Sol condo tower. Our visit was on a weekday so we just about had the place all to ourselves. I can imagine that this attraction is popular with the locals and could be crowded on weekends.

A sign at the front gate says that they're open every day, except Mondays, from 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM. I highly recommend this great attraction to any one visiting Margarita Island.

The Laberinto Tropical is named for the two hedge mazes composed of tropical flora contained within its grounds, but there is so much more to see. There is a tropical botanical garden full of species native to Margarita Island and Venezuela. Some of the plants found in this section include colorful flowers, bamboo trees, cacti, a Guayacán tree, mango fruit trees, banana trees, guava, palm trees, sugar canes, aloe vera, orchids and many more.

After the gardens and two labyrinths, you'll reach the animal rehabilitation area where former pets or injured wildlife are rescued. There are a few pelicans, turtles, parrots and other small birds that roam freely in this area but the other animals are in enclosures.
