“we love this zoo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

we make it a point to check out the zoo every year. our kids love to walk around and talk to all the parrots. fun to walk through bird cage. at the end you can pet bunnies, lamps etc. also a great playground. New this year: no more feeding peanuts - now you can buy Animal crackers! We love the irony!!

“ok...for what it is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I took my kids to the zoo because the semi-submersible was closed (Christmas week). There were lots of parrots. My kids liked the playground there. I wanted to get back to the beach, but for what it was (a couple hours of diversion), it wasn't terrible.

“kid friendly and small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

My son enjoyed the monkeys and was able to feed a very tame peacock and some goats. The ride there from the boat was interesting... a nice quiet outing.

“not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We went on christmas day and it was open, however, the taxi had to honk the horn to see if anyone was there. Small zoo and not in a pretty area. Does not make any sort of appealing entrance. Overall though my kids did like the zoo and there were some interesting animals. It is a little distance from the port, so unless you or your children love zoos, you probably could skip it. It also does not appear that taxi service is readily available, although the staff will call one for you when you are ready to leave.

“Quaint family spot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

The displays need a little workon upkeep but for a small island this zoo is clean and the animals well looked after. A nice visit when we come to the island and easily accesable by bus or car.
