So the place was nice, lots of threes and was awesome to sit under them. Lots of birds, but the amazonian area was closed, the aquarium is a bit poor of species. At the end is good to see reptiles and birds.

Officially know as Zoologico Municipal Fauna Sudamericana. This small zoo close to the city center is a easy hike for the adventurer. Had many animals to see.

The Santa Cruz zoo is a reasonably large area on the external 3rd Ring to the North West of Santa Cruz. Parking (not provided by the zoo) can be difficult at busy times. There are attractions (play areas) for young children and lots of places...More

If you are a tourist you have to go to the Zoo. Even though its small, its very well organized and you will be amazed by the variety of animals in there.
