“Rainy Day Activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We went on a rainy day when the beach was a no go. Good mix of covered and non covered parts to the zoo. Reasonably priced, and was nice to put a name to some of the fish I had seen in the sea. You can also get really close to the animals in some of the exhibits.

“A pleasant little gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I had read about the aquarium in the guide books, and had been told by our hotel manager at Tucker’s Point that it was a recommended feat. Of course, whenever you’re traveling, your first priority does not exactly shout “aquarium!” (unless you have small children in tow). I had saved it for our very last day, thinking that if the weather didn’t hold up, it would be something good to do indoors (though be warned, much of the zoo is actually outdoors).
Suffice to say, it was a lovely treat – and by far exceeded all of my expectations. I would definitely recommend going if you’re on the island. You won’t be disappointed! Having been to plenty of zoos around the world (New Zealand, Belize, St. Martin), I would say this one’s a charmer. I love that some of the animals (tortoise, ibis, peacocks, etc), just wander around freely and you’re almost interacting with them as you go (something you wouldn’t see in the states). I also loved the fact that we got to see some animals (lemurs, tree-kangaroos, Galapagos turtles), that we wouldn’t normally get to see.

If you spoiled with zoo and aquariums u will not like this one. But it is nice, has lovely expositions, and awesome views of the bay.

“Loved our visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We took our teenage sons here whilst they were visiting us. It is lovely, clean and pleasant and not too big. The Lemurs are stunning and are so close, though you must NOT touch them! Everything is well planned out and the gift shop is delightful too. The lady at the desk could have been more friendly but the girl serving in the gift shop was very pleasant. We will certainly bring all put visitors here!
