Quiet oasis in the city center full of interesting trees and plants. A few exhibits have been updated to be more modern but most are still cramped cages and the big cat exhibits were especially depressing. The butterflies and the large tiger were highlights. Worth a visit to help out as they are working toward modernizing the place for better... More

This is a nice park not to fare from the down town medellin, the access is only $8000 pesos, you are going to find mostly exotic Colombian animals really nice park that you can walk around in only 1:30 min time

I did not hear many positive comments about the zoo, not even from local people. But I was pleasantly surprised. The zoo is well maintained. They have a good variety of animals, especially monkeys, wild cats and birds. While the zoo is a bit more old school with many cages and less fee space for the animals, one actually gets... More

This zoo had a fantastic selection of animals. It is also very cheap to visit and only cost us 9000cop which was approx £3.50. My only problem with the place is that the enclosures are very small. There seems to be a lot of land surrounding the enclosures so I don't understand why they don't extend some of them. A... More

I've been to some desperate zoos but this was pretty good; it's not Regent's Park at all, and some of the animals are in pretty shabby quarters, but it's a little oasis out of the city.

Usually zoos in Central & South America tend to be on the sadder side of things in terms of animal conditions, layout, etc, but I was pleasantly surprised by this zoo. Admission and food prices inside were extremely reasonable. Some of the exhibits aren't set up the best for viewing, but overall it's really a nice layout. If you go... More
