Always love the zoo and especiially the GDL zoo . I recommend an afternoon here or just to kill a few hours. There is a small amusement park next door which is great to amuse the kids after the zoo. Plenty to do for the whole family

If you like zoos, this is a must see. I recommend splurging for the pass that gives you access to the sky train which is a ski lift that takes you round trip above the zoo. Gives you a good overall view plus a brief view of the barranca that borders the zoo's edge. We took the bus from the... More

We started by taking a ski lift over the zoo. Awesome. We also went on the safari tour and were taken into the rhino's area and the giraffes where we got to feed the giraffes. There weren't any fences separating us from the animals. Afterward, we went into one of the monkey's areas where the monkeys climbed all over you.... More

Hello everybody 😊 i recommend that you spend a few hours on visiting this place. The park is very interesting! The best way to see it is to go early and to buy all inclusive ticket. That way you will not be in a rush and will be able to see everything. I recommend that you start from skyzoo (chair... More

The zoo is big, just as is the city. You need to take a lot of time to get to see everything. I went to meet a giraffe, and was lucky enough to have one eat out of my hand. I would have like to spend more time with this amazing animal but there are just so many people waiting... More

This zoo is one of the best. Buy the diamante package for the train, the sky tram and the safari ride--gives one a good overview of this very large park and lets you choose what you want to see at a slower pace. Very clean and well-maintained. The landscaping is of botanical garden quality. Animals appear to be well cared... More
