It is a large zoo integrated with local history. It was quite beautiful. I enjoyed the many animal exhibits and the beautiful scenery. The zoo was in the process of updating the facilities, however we were still able to fully enjoy the entire park. Take your time to stroll the entire park as it is well worth it.

It is well laid out and we liked how it had sections themed for different regions. We went midday during off-season, so there was construction and some animals were gone. We still really enjoyed it! If you're traveling with children or an animal lover, it is worth going to, better than a museum. They have Galapagos tortoises, a great large... More

I love going to zoos when I travel. I like seeing the different designs and seeing what different things the different zoos have to offer. While I enjoyed our 3 hours at Parque de las Leyendas I would not say that it is one of the best, nor the worst. Admission to the zoo is affordable, 10 soles, and it... More

I will start off by saying my family got there late in the afternoon.... maybe at 3? The park wasn't crowded and I think going so late had to do with that. It was also a bit chilly out so that could have played a factor. I liked that it wasn't too crowded. I really enjoyed the time we spent... More

I won't say a lot because other reviews have pretty well covered things as far as I'm concerned. I visited with my wife and 2 year old daughter. Our daughter had a great time. She has been wanting to see penguins since one of her books has penguins who live in Peru. We will get to see them in their... More

The park is beautifully designed and well kept. Of course one can discuss if animals belong in cages, but the park is a joy to walk through. The jungle area and the botanical garden are marvelous. Some/many cages are definitely too small. The animals look well fed and generally well taken care of. The park tries to give and impression... More

I was kind of disappointed about the installations, also there is not much variety of animals. I know in Peru there is a lot of species but we can not see them all in here. There is much to improve definitely.

Is a shame that with so much fauna Peru didn't do a better job with their exhibits. They don't use the same acrylic enclosure some places use here in the US, but instead some reflecting material that not only prevents you to seeing the fauna, take good pictures but on top they are dirty and bad maintained. Some enclosures for... More

With an entrance price of just S/. 10, this zoo is a steal! The zoo is separated into zones: jungle, coast, lagoon, sierra, and international. Because the park is so big, you'll find yourself walking a lot to get from zone to zone; but in between zones, you can admire the archaeological ruins contained there. I was not expecting these...

Altho this park is listed as a Zoo, it is much more than that. The variety of animals from around the world is extensive. One walks thru the various regions of the country - I especially enjoyed the Selva and the boat ride on the Laguna. The park is large but one can find clean restrooms in each section. Numerouis...
