My teens enjoyed the visit. They enjoyed seeing the variety of animals. The chicken at the restaurant was good. The kids lowered the rating because the animal cages were not clean and smelled. Despite this, they enjoyed the visit.

One of the saddest things I ever seen. I guess it’s not even just this zoo but the animals seemed very sad and lifeless. There aren’t that many animal options

The lion and the elephant are in such small enclosures. The puma too. Some unique animals endemic to Colombia. I hate to say that there is an advantage to such small cages. Young kids can easily walk around the whole zoo in the heat.
