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.

The good news is that there is a good variety of animals at this zoo; unfortunately, they are kept in small areas which I feel is cruel. I wish that the animals had more space. It is just another old fashioned zoo.

We visited this place by accident trying to walk through the park. It is an okay zoo. It is weird that people can buy generic food to feed so many types of animals!! How does the zoo know they are getting fed properly or the right amount?? Also buying fish for the sealions, very entertaining but surely they just get... More

nice for kids to learn about the animals, but the animals are kept in small areas, which makes it difficult to really enjoy. they need more space. The Puma was my biggest attraction and the three bears they had. I don't think I would go again, once is enough, because I didn't like the small space the animals were confined... More

On our last day in BA, we had to be at the airport by 3pm and wondered if we could squeeze in a trip to the zoo. Boy was it worth it! I've been to so many zoo's but the best thing about this one was:- - it had animals I had never seen before (if you have been to... More

My day at the zoo was a disappointment. The zoo is obviously old but that doesn't mean that it should not be maintained to a high standard so that the animals can live in good conditions. Sadly this is not the case. When compared to other zoo's around the world this is not animal friendly. Such a shame because it... More

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.
