“Fantastic Walk Through Zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Loved all of the exotic animals and plants of the area. Bring corn...the animals love it! There was an easy follow along path, very cool (loved the air conditioning!) frog house exhibit, and tons of places to take pictures with the family. Definitely a place we will go back to see!

“Why keep animals on concret floors”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

You get to see a great variety of animals. But why are they kept under these unworthy conditions. Is it really necessary to keep like 10 peacocks in one small cage. Or is it really ok two keep pigs on concrete floor. For me the answer is no! Why not make the effort to present the animal in a somewhat more natural surrounding?! The area is large and ok maintained, the cages or compounds are in rather rough conditions. As there is not too much more to do in El Valle go and make up your own opinion.

Lokal plants and animals, wide spreaded but a little poor in construction of the cages for the birds.

“Cool zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

I really enjoyed the zoo, even the i didn't know howto get there. I took a cab from the local market, please ask for the driver's number so you can call him or her after you left the zoo, it takes a time to get out of the zoo zone, i had to ask for a ride of a very nice panamenians who took me to the market again. The zoo is nice i enjoyed all the animals. Have ostrichs, tapirs, coyotes, monkeys, ñus. I kind of a dissapointed with the frog's facility because i couln't find the golden frog but he other ones are cool also. PS...ask for a map in a little house besides the market ; )

“Sorry for the animals”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

It was amazing to see the rare frog species which one would not normally see in the wild. I felt sorry for some of the animals who only had a bar cold slab of concrete for ground space. It broke my hart.
