Beautiful animals in a beautiful place! The only problem is that non of the signs is in english, so to read the signs, you'll have to know spanish. But I don't really read the signs, so it didn't matter to me

I love seeing zoos and when I first arrived in Cali I wanted to visit the renovated zoo. I was left astonished to see how the zoo resembled a small versión of my favorite zoo trips to the Bronx Zoo in NY while I was growing up. The zoo in Cali is very weel kept, very clean, and most of... More

I had an awesome trip to the Zoo. The butterfly garden is especially good. The quality of food available at the park is not good (as with most attractions anywhere in the world) so take your own drinks and snacks. Also make sure you have a hat and sunglasses.

It is a good place to go with kids, it takes a lot of time to view all the animals, but there are plenty of things to see. There is no need for a guide, the maps and signals are clear and concise enough in order to give you info about what you're seeing. Between the stations, there are chairs... More

And what else would you do in Cali? It's just a common zoo, with nothing really special apart from the new installation about Australia and dry lands. Hurry up, before it gets destroyed!
