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...

Visited the zoo on a Wednesday morning. Lots and lots (and lots) of little kids. But it was still a fun time! Great variety of animals. They appeared to be well cared for. The zoo is laid out well. I loved the Zona Selva (the forest zone). Adult admission was only S/.10, which seemed very reasonable. Drinks, snacks, and meals... More

We visited the zoo in a recent visit to Peru. I would recommend getting here very early. We were visiting during summer break so a lot of field trips were taking place. We made sure to arrive when the zoo was opening at 9:00. It is deceivingly large in terms of area. There are a lot of exhibits and it... More

I came here a little while back and I'm passionate about animals so love going to any kind of zoo. What I really love about Parque de las Leyendas is seeing how good the staff there are, they all clearly love their jobs and really care for each and every animal in their zoo -to me, this is a very...

I had high hopes for the zoo, and while it wasn't as amazing as I pictured, it still was a very enjoyable day, and I learned a lot about Peruvian animals! The price is good (10 soles), especially since you will spend anywhere from 2 - 5 hours in the park. The zoo has animals from the coast, sierra, and... More

This zoo covers Peru’s major geographical divisions: coast, mountains and jungle (costa, sierra y selva). There are about 210 native animals, with a few imports. Here's where I saw a giant turtle for the firs time in my life. And there are also a lot of llamas. :)

I always think it's a fun idea to go to the zoo and usually come out feeling regretful and depressed. It happened again here. Went on a weekday so no crowds really which was good, but it also meant there was no happy vibe. Many of the animals (the puma, the oso anteojos, the tiger, the lion, the hippos and... More
