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

Quistococha park is a fantastic place where you can view a rich fauna and flora. You can swimm in the lagoon and relax. You can some regional myths and legends about quistococha..

We went after the manatee rescue center. It was much cleaner and nicer than other reviews led us to believe! There is a good variety of different native animals. The restaurant by the lake was a nice place to stop for lunch and a break!...More

Thoroughly saddened by our trip to this 'zoo'. Animals kept in enclosures no bigger than themselves, and only able to access the underwhelming beach by paying to see the animals. 0/10
