I have been in plenty of places around the globe where wild animals are held with commecial purpose. Generally I feel sorry for the animals taken out their natural medium. However, here they treat animals at best possible way, very spacious, clean facilities, imposing well-fed-looking animals.

The zoo was a fun way to spend a few hours in the heart of Buenos Aires. Kids under 12 are free. My daughter enjoyed riding on the double decker merry-go-round and feeding the animals.

The Zoo in Buenos Aires is pricey, but worth it. It is very intimate, the animals are close and visible, and you can feed nutria, peacocks, and muscovy ducks with inexpensive animal food. Also, right now there is a great dinosaurs of Argentina display. Really great for kids!

We thought we were going to a teeny tiny little zoo since it's in the city. It was larger than we expected and you can feed some of the animals. We enjoyed it. I'm no zoologist but the thought that perhaps some of these animals didn't have enough space did cross my mind. The zoo is overrun by nutria and... More

Such a sad zoo. Seeing the picture of the depressed zebra on here has brought back so many awful memories of this place.

Very interesting animals that we don't have in the US. The animals roam freely in the park and are friendly. A nice place to walk and take the kids.

We found this a sad zoo because the animals had small enclosures. The birds didn't have room to open their wings and most of the ground animals didn't even have grass to walk on. Some animals had larger areas but this zoo still has a lot of improvements to make for animal welfare.

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
