I was so sad! This place looks terrible. As does the animals! I think closing this place will benefit the animals. Go Away! Don't bring your kids! ...and careful with the stone thrower monkey!

The zoo in Mayaguez is an excellent choice to go with children. The cost of entry is accessible and also has good parking. I went with my daughter this year, on the 3 Magic King's day which was held there. This is the only large zoo in Puerto Rico. This has a great variety of species. We saw an elephant,... More

Visited about a year ago. It was just too sad to see the animal in this condition. Not good again. Cant understand why they do not creat a better habitat.

I was very disappointed at the conditions of the zoo and the animals. I saw very little personnel around. All of the snack areas where closed. For the price of $13 it's really not worth the visit. To top it off some areas like the aviary,the aquarium, where the Giraffes are located where closed for feeding. I saw 2 butterflies... More

You need to understand that there is very little support or interest to the zoos in Puerto Rico, but this one somehow survives, and it is very good compared to any other place in Latin America. There is a good representation of African and Central American fauna, and it has space to grow. It desperately need help from the public,... More

My grand children always ask to go back to the zoo everytime they come to visit us from New York. It is a great place to spend the day.
