I was warned that this zoo desperately needs modernisation, but I was interested to learn more about Colombia's fauna. Unfortunately the small museum was closed for renovation and I didn't really learn much. The cages were very small, and many animals were pacing up and down, never a good sign. One thing in the zoo's favour is that though the... More

I love the zoo in Medellin. Not only is there a large display of monkeys (my favorites) but it's a great change to see a large variety of animals and enjoy some time in a park-like setting,

I have to be honest it was a waste of time coming here, the zoo in under maintainance, some animals missing and it's dirty. It was also difficult to reach here even with GPS I got lost but I was lucky to get assistance from locals.

A vest pocket park zoo-lovers won't want to miss. Sadly, a storm caused a massive break-out in the butterfly house a few weeks ago, and at least for the moment few remain encaged. There's also an exhibit labelled "wolf" with a black animal inside a zoo employee acknowledged has not actually been identified as a wolf. It does look like... More

After reading other reviews I expected to be underwhelmed, but several exhibits were a delight, particularly the Spectacled Bear. We spent two very enjoyable hours. The North American Gray Wolf looked very sad and lonely. That was the low point. While some exhibits were closed, there was plenty to see. Very clean and well organized.
