Nice to do with kids
Rancho Alegre has been around for over 40 years. We have had different animals since the 80s and the place is accessible to visitors and outdoor rides are organized. We love to take care of more than 20 different animals every day and we really appreciate the enthusiastic and nice reactions from visitors. It is certainly a nice place for animal lovers. Rancho Alegre is not a company and therefore we do not have fixed opening hours.
