This was our second visit to the petting zoo, and I was a little disappointed that some of the animals, including the zebra, and the horses were penned up where we couldn't go. I remember there being a lot more animals last time, ( about 4 years ago) still a nice place to visit, and I still recommend it.

A well kept and clean facility with a wide assortment of animals to pet and feed. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots of things to do for the kids besides interacting with the animals. A little train ride, a playground and pony rides are available to amuse the kids. Facilities are available to rent for parties also. No... More

They have lots of sheep, goats, guinea pigs, bunnies and chickens to pet. The sell veggies to feed the animals for 3 bucks. The pony rides are way too short for the price, $5 and they only take you on a little loop that barely gives you enough time to take pictures. So you are better off recording a video.... More

If you aren't expecting Disneyland or Sea World, this place is fun. The staff is friendly and there is lots to do. It is a little bit of a challenge to find it if you don't have GPS, but it is worth the search.

EASY walking distance from everything in DownTown San Juan, and it is AT the Train station if you are coming by train. Well kept, great for the grandkids!

We had so much fun at the petting zoo. You get to feed the rabbits, llamas, alpacas, emu, and other animals. They have pony and horse rides for kids too. Lots of activities and photo opportunities for families!

Had the pleasure of spending 3 hours at Zoomars for my nieces birthday. From the very second you set foot on the property the staff is extremely friendly and they do everything possible to make your party an easy set up. Kids 1-4 years old really love this place. The animals are well taken care of and are very educational... More

I think it's a little pricey for what there is. We took my 3 year old niece and she enjoyed the pony ride. Not too much to do there.

This place I great for young kids. I took my 16 month old daughter and she loved it! You can feed the animals, ride the small train, take a pony ride, play in the corn pit and on their new play structure. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a little pricey for what you get, but worth... More

Small family petting zoo. Low key. Up close experience for the kids. Visit them on Facebook for updates.
