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...

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
