Beside eating Cholado at the stadium, my favorite thing to do is to go to the zoo, in Cali. You will be pleasantly surprised how clean, the animals seem well cared for and looked happy.(though they did not relate directly to me - lol).

The zoo was full of a great variety of animals who seemed well cared for. It was nicely laid out, well designed with clear signs and maps. Lots of educational displays and good descriptions of the animals. Loved the birds and butterflies! The grandkids were thrilled to be there.

Was not overjoyed to be heading to a zoo taking into account I have done safaris around the world. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the variety of animals on show. Ended up being a very enjoyable day, and I would suggest well worth a visit.

We took an 8:30AM taxi(~$2) from our Hotel Casa Toscano and arrived at the zoo before 8:45AM, so we watched the birds along the Cali River until the 9AM opening. After paying our reduced Senior rate, we studied their colorful map, then followed the arrows on the concrete pathway that wound through the park, passing nearly all the exhibits. We... More

The zoologico de Cali is a pleasant visit for an afternoon. It looks well maintained but it is small. When we visited it was raining, so we got some shelter in the aquarium. But the rain was unpredictable these days. We enjoyed the visit!

I don’t know why, but I did not expect a high quality, well designed and maintained zoo in Cali. But, there it was. Plan to spend several hours there to take in the variety of exhibits.

Zoo is wonderful, you can really get up close and personal with the animals. Only downside for us was it was extremely busy and it was a challenge to get around. The exhibits were excellent, and the animals look well cared for. The monkeys even had cute newborns for us to watch!
