The park is divided into regions representing the geographic regions of Peru. Each section stars animals and landscapes from its region, spaced between actual pre-Incan ruins. I was very impressed with the park- its cleanliness, beauty, and abundant bathroom facilities fully equipped with paper and soap (not something to be scoffed at).
In the mountains we encountered llamas, a pumas, condors, and many other typical animals nestled among waterfalls and eucalyptus trees. My fifth grade friends expertly identified replicas of Chavin and other ancient ruins hidden among the foliage.

Through the gateway to the jungle everything changed. Tall trees walled us in, and even the ground itself had been replaced with the red clay soil typical of the jungle. Monkeys, bears, wild cats, and a variety of tropical birds dazzled us with their exotic markings and shapes.
whatever it was we were waiting for happened, and we moved on to see animals from other countries: peacocks, hippos, zebras, and the like.
At dusk we headed to the fountain park before heading home and completing our 21-hour odessy.
Some things are just better with kids.
