Good place to see the local fauna

If you want to see the local fauna this is the right place, although not fond of zoos or having animals in cages, they all look well nurtured and taken care of.

It is supposed to be a place where you can "connect" with the animals and be aware of some possibilities to take care of them, what to do to protect them, etc. It was a dirty and desolated place. Bad food and dirty bathrooms 

The zoo looked tired and dirty. Roots everywhere on the floor so you need to watch your feet. The animals looked OK, although lots of cages were empty. On the plus side: new dolphin arena, low price (15 per motocarro from Iquitos center, 2-4 Soles pp entry), lots of monkeys incl wild ones in the trees above you, the lake... More

I have to confess I had a bigger expectation than what it really was. This zoo is sort of abandoned but its very popular for locals as they have a nice lagoon where you can swim. Animal shelters are in very poor cndition. Nice day trip though.

I have visited the zoo and beach area several times over the past ten years. A good variety of jungle animals, but many appear to be in cages much to small. You can hold s huge boa if you want- and the beach area is great for families and teens.

Tiny concrete cages and bad smells. Felt really bad supporting a zoo that doesn't give the animals a nice place to live.

Quistococha is fabulous, but this "park" needs more animals, decorate, create new games to enjoy, as I can remember, there was a game called "Tarzan", but now it wasn't there anymore...
