The Zoo keepers are friendly but pitty the conditions the Animals are kept. There are no tickets issued, there is a register hope the ticket collections go for the welfare of the animals, which I could'nt see.

Cebu Zoo is a good place to interact with some animals especially the snakes, birds and even crocodiles. The zoo keepers are very friendly and accomodating. Although theare are only few animals to see, the P25 entrance fee is still reasonable. Check out my experience here.. http://justnewsprint.blogspot.com/2014/06/cebu-zoo-experience.html

Okay! Maybe we just got lucky, overall, it was unintentional to be in this place, we were heading to Taoist Temple when we came across this zoo, so we checked it out anyways. There were no visitors in the zoo but me and my friends. We roam around and saw the usual zoo, animals in their cage. The environment is... More

I was with family and friends, staff members answered questions and were helping us along but they need tools to work with. Hands on and interactive displays needed.... More

The people were rude, the beach was dirty, just an over populated island. Not much to see either. I went solo and prefered Boracay anyday.

Even if there are a lot of bad comments about the Zoo, it didn't stop me from going there on my own. I can only count on my fingers the number of visitors today. I was impressed on other animals and at the same time curious of what they are doing. The city government and private donors are supporting the... More

We took two children, even they were appalled by the conditions the animals were kept in. Not many animals and really hard to get a taxi back to hotel.
