The park is a very nice place to come and walk around. I love the old summer residence of president Lopez, the bird life, the trees and flours... But this is also a zoo with badly treated animals in small dirty cages fed with whatever leftovers the zoo has. In the zoo, there is also a museum with animals stuffed... More

The botanical garden and zoo is a very large park with many kilometres of trails, a natural history museum, a forest reserve, camping and a few other places to see including something called Casa Alta that was closed for renovations when I was there. The entire place seems well maintained with workers actively improving the zoo and gardens. There is... More

Compared to the Botanical Gardens say in Rio, this more like a very large city park that happens to have a small zoo, an out-dated natural history museum (very small), and a few pleasant flower gardens. My husband and I enjoyed a stroll here with our daughter who we had not seen in several months. It was a wonderful place... More

245 hectares of land, green and many huge trees, amazing to spend the day, pic nic are allowed. Very well maintained and in great shape, either some more garbage been will be welcome. Definetely worth it to see!

Went to the museum at the botanical gardens and saw the whale eye. This is mentioned in the book At The TOmb of the Inflatable Pink Pig by John Gimlette

There is nothing great to see, durty, it is sad to see the animals , they need care and bigger cages. Also we were told to be very carefull because we could be rob, so the place is not safe to visit.

We took a bus here, and It was a great escape from the city. We did not have high expectations for the zoo, but it turned out to be a cute place. It was the first time we saw a hippo being active on land.

This Botanical Garden is HUGE and very beautiful. But the zoo is poorly set up, maintained and financed. The Municipal Government should shop it out to a third party for administration with the condition that it be made into a REAL ZOO!!!

It's not got many animals and some of them look very bored, just pacing up and down inside their cages/pens. They all seem pretty healthy though. Only takes 30mins to see everything but not bad for 5mil!

Well, when I go a park I like to lay down and realx a little bit. The park look good, but there wasn't really a good lawn where we could sit and there were ants like EVERYWHERE! In addition there were also cars driving around so it doesn't really get quiet and you don't the tranquility like in other places.... More
