The Zoo of Buenos Aires is a really nice place to families with childrens. It easy to reach and you can spend a long time. It has local animals but also many specimens from other continents.

I recently visited the Zoo and was really disappointed! The whole compound is in a very bad condition, the way animals are kept is definitely not up to date! Seeing the animals in their small cages was truly saddening, it is actually torture in my opinion.....Furthermore, a ticket price of 130 AR$ is ridicolous considering what is offered there. I...

The zoo has some great original buildings (in need of paint) which are good to see but perhaps not ideal to achieve todays standards for entertaining and displaying caged animals. A number of cages were empty. Staff were seen to be keen and willing to pass on information to children, however, some animals showed recognisable signs of boredom/stress. Food and... More

This zoo has a very nice atmosphere with old animal houses and offers an attraction in the middle of lage city. You can see tha the zoo is short on money since it is not up to date wit animal housing. Nevertheless, it is very much worth a visit.

Although this zoo is a little down-at-heels, like so much in Buenos Aires, the animals appear well cared for. The park is lovely and there are many benches scattered around for the weary. The best thing about the zoo is the architecture. Whoever built it loved follies and nearly every enclosure has one nearby. There are follies of every description,... More

This was a nice relaxed day out in pleasant surroundings. The price was more than we were expecting, lonely planet had quoted 40 pesos per person (2011) but it was actually 130, so nearly four times the price. I thought the enclosures were of a good size but there were some animals that were pacing, which can be a little... More

Buenos Aires' Zoo is a good place to go with kids! It is located very close to Plaza Italia (that offers options of transportation) and to the Botanical Garden. There, you will be able to feed some animals (actually, some of them are free, out of the cages). Besides, it has a lot of space to play, and a good... More

The BsAs Zoo main draw for me would be its central location within the city, making it easy to access. It is a typical zoo, although clearly no longer in its heyday. Everything looks rundown and feels dated, but the animals are sure to please. There is a carousel kids can ride (again, it creaks and groans as though the... More
