The Mayaguez zoo is not a spectacular zoo but it has many animals and the kids enjoyed it. It was sad however how some animals seemed not maintained as such. Many of the animals looked run down but the heat in Puerto Rico is not light either. The Zoo maintenance could of been better for the animals sake but overall... More

This zoo needs improvement ASAP. Some of the animals look sad and not taken care of. Not too many species to look at. It can get better.

I know some reviews indicate that the zoo is dirty. Well, I just went there and the Zoo is not dirty, but need some improvement in the maintenance to be more attractive. The sidewalks need to be pressure wash, along with the handrails and the animal cages. Then a little paint and I bet the place will have a great... More

Went there with my family last week, i can honestly say it was a horrible experience. The outside looked nice, but once inside it was dirty, the walkways were dangerous for kids to walk on, the animals look skinny, unhappy and confined in small area/cages. There were missing animals, closed out areas, etc. I was very very disappointed and ashamed... More

It was years since the last time i went to the zoo, so the family tried to give it a chance. You can see a lot of peacocks around it was pretty. The lion and lioness looked sad. The elephant looks mistreated. I think they should improve the attractions and take care better of the animals.
