We decide to visit the zoo with my friend as I was visiting Bueno Aires. Quiet familiar with zoo visit, this one was the worse. You need to pay 245$ for the entrance which is expensive for the city. Inside the park, a lot of animals are missing. Some part of the areas were even close. When we asked the... More

We hear the zoo is undergoing a refurb, but except for the closed areas we could find no evidence of things getting better. The animals look healthy enough, but their enclosures are sad and lacking. The materials which make up the enclosures make it very difficult to take photos.

It was awesome to see the huge variety of animals in one big zoo. Coming from a small island, we would never get to see a lion, hippo, baboon, bear, panther, puma etc. Also there is a section of reptiles that was very awesome to see up close and personal. It was really fun to fed the animals. Besides the... More

Wasn't sure to give 1 or 2 stars. Firstly it cost 190$ which was over my backpacking budget. The enclosures were small, but not only that, grim, with a small patch of mud with no food, water or simulates. Reptile enclosures seemed ok, although some were small. The crowds were annoying, taking flash pictures of everything. A lot of the... More

A local told us this place is closing soon, which is for the best. It was cool to see the wandering Peacocks but as for the other animals, I've never seen enclosures so small. We wandered in because we had some time to kill and couldn't get over how small the cages were. On one hand, the animals have nowhere... More

Thought I'd visit the zoo since I was staying in Palermo (very close by). I guess I had high expectations of the place - its location made me think of the zoo in Central Park and Regent's Park (in London). But I was very mistaken! Although they had quite a variety of animals and the zoo in very large -... More

I chose to go to the zoo because I was walking down a street and saw a giraffe head poking over the top! The zoo had a wide variety of animals including bears, tigers, lions and elephants. Got a really clear view of all of them up close, probably due to the fact that have zero space in their cages.... More

The zoo has a large variety of animals, however, all of the cages look quite tatty and needs a lot of TLC which was quite sad to see.

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
