I traveled to the zoo with my mother and daughter. My mother was free, because people over 60 are free. She didn't even have to show her passport, though I would advise any senior citizens to bring theirs just in case. Children up to 12 are 8 soles and adults are 14 soles. Children 3 and under are free. We... More

Although not the best of Zoos (not that many animals), the park impress by the sheer number of attractions contained inside its walls: from archaeological sites to boat rides in a lake, botanical gardens, restaurants, museums, and many more!

I'm not a big fan of zoo's but Parque de Las Leyendas is wonderfully taken care of, it has a lot of attractions for adults and kids. You could even get into a boat and have a tour to a tiny cave that takes you back to Machu Picchu. It's a wonderful and magical place to go with family, on... More

I visited on May, is a great place where nature and animals are in armony with human beings, we can find a variety of Funa and is awesome , you can learn a lot. There are some animals wich are endangered. I recommend to visit it in family you won’t regret.

Parque de las Leyendas is an oasis of calm and beauty in an otherwise noisy city. The park is beautifully landscaped. It offers a myriad of trees and flowers as well as picnic areas and playgrounds for the kids. There is even a lagoon for boating. The reproductions of some of the country's main attractions look interesting but they are... More

This zoo is ok. It is nothing like most zoos in the U.S. but it has some nice exhibits. They have improved it a lot since I was here 5 years ago. There are actual ruins inside the zoo that you can see but the animal exhibits are hit and miss. The feline exhibit was much improved.

Wonderful huacas here in the middle of Lima. You can walk in the Huaca San Miguel; the others can not be entered but you can still have a good image of them. There is also an old wall. The parque also contains a zoo and some wonderful playgrounds

I went to the Zoo at least twice a year. Even though it covers a large area, they amount of animals on display are limited. However, you will find still a wide range of animals from all over the world. Make sure to bring sunscreen and water. Leaving the zoo leads to a street full of restaurants, in case you... More

Too many zoos try to have large collections that represent a full Noah's ark of world wildlife; the only elephant on display here was a full sized skeleton in a nice case along one of the walkways. Instead, the focus at this zoo is on the important regional wildlife, organized into three principal biomes/regions: zona costa, zona selva, and zona... More
