El Nispero, one of the most popular attractions in El Valle, is a small zoo with a wide selection of native animals and birds, mostly in good-sized cages. It is a private property created by the Caballero family over 30 years ago. The park is home to the famous golden frogs as well as peacocks, owls, storks and herons, serpents, crocodiles, and felines.
