It's small but has interesting animals. They sell nice empanadas in the back of the zoo. Make sure to apply mosquito repellent because it's ideal that you will get bit.

The zoo is small, not too big but it has a lot animal to see between birds , monkeys, lions , tigers, snakes. It takes around 2 hours to see everything , and only Spanish information, nothing available in English.

The zoo is in the city, and relatively small. But do not let that deter you because it is a good zoo with well-done habitats for the animals and many to see.

Came here to have a look to the animals they have here. It is a nice place to get in touch (almost) with nature. Tour guides give a nice explanation and make you feel part of the attraction.

The zoo is a must see for young and old. The monkeys and the iguanas roam around free. The snakes where sun bathing so we were able to touch them risk free. What a unique experience. The children loved it !

The zoo is small. You can see the whole thing in under two hours. On the plus side you're closer to the animals that in other zoos. I felt bad for the elephant that was in solitary confinement. Elephants are social. Must be tough for...More
