Love this park, it is so peaceful and have so many exotic animals, this is a place to learn about them or simply a nice place to be relax and enjoy the birds singing, if you are in the western side of the island and you or your kids are animal lovers, this is the place to visit.

Visited the first time and didn't know that the two exhibits that I was interested in were closed from 11:30-1:30.(Aviary and the butterfly exhibit). arrived at 11 and wasn't able to enter either. Other random complaints about the first visit was, no food available, animals seem bored, bathrooms locked, no one around to ask questions about the exhibits and closed... More

You think you are going to see animals in their habitats, healthy and happy. No way! I feel for those animals, they look under nourished. The hippo has a mini pool that barely covers his feet, imagine if he wants to sink in? I believe that maybe people should start visiting more and perhaps with the income, they can give... More

We really enjoyed the little zoo in Puerto Rico. It is small but really entretaining. I read that there is shows within the zoo, but we didn't get to see any of them. There is no giraffe in the zoo at this time. My favorite animal was the elephant! The only down side to this cute little place is that... More

This is the only zoo in PR. A lot of effort has been put into its development and it shows. There is ample parking and lush vegetation.

We got there early and got to see the animals being fed. It was awesome! Not like other zoo's where they are all sleeping.

The zoo needs attention. There are no giraffes or gorillas. It has a great potential since it has beautiful fauna and flora. The butterfly area has very little butterflies. There are hardly any snakes..... oh and there is a lot of empty cages. They use to give you headphones that would give you information in spanish and in english and... More

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!
