The zoo has been improving during the years, it has zip lines in process of construction. The animals look kind of sad.

This zoo is terrible. Animals are in very bad shape and condition. The park is dirty and you can not reach any employees. No place to eat inside. Its very pricey for what you will see

Seems that this place was really nice 2 years ago, now you can tell the lack of mainteniance. Is true that the animals look very sad... and some animals are missing, like the can kangaroo couple, where there is only one left... Peacocks are walking everywhere, which is ok, but I also found a big iguana walking in the sidewalks...... More

Arguably the most famous zoo in Puerto Rico. Needs some maintenance and improvement but worth a visit for animal lovers.

My first impression was very bad. The employee who sold the tickets gave the impression that he was having a bad day. It was written all over his face, way of talking and body language. It was a chronicle of a foretold death. The zoo entrance employees were a little better but the worst part of all was the careless... More

Went with teenager and 7 yr. Animals are in good shape and looks fine. The area also seems to be that they take good care of. Even though you will not have a tour guide, they provide with a transmitter which explains details per animal station. Employees were friendly.
