before It was a great zoo. Now it deserves more. Some animals are very thin. They have one of the two condors in Merida.

There are nice waterfalls and trails at the far end of the zoo. However, the cages in which the animals live are TINY!! They have an adult jaguar in a cage the size of our hotel bathroom, and the other animals are treated the same. The park should be open for hiking and exploring, but the animals should not be treated this way.

Great trails with small waterfalls. Cages are small, but the animals are well treated. We take our grand kids a few times a year.

It's a cute little zoo that has all your basic zoo animals. But that's about it. The zoo was nice to see but it didn't take long to see all of it.

If you want to spend a morning, afternoon or even a full day, you can go there and see the animals. The climate is nice, so you can enjoy your time there.

I lived in Mérida for several years and went to Chorros de Milla a couple of times (mostly for work-related issues). Although the park has tried hard to make it a better place for the animals, these live in very precarious conditions, typical of zoos in developing countries. If you care for animal welfare, then you shouldn't go there. It will make your heart shrink.

I rated our experience as "terrible" because I really really felt awful about most of the animals in this zoo. The landscaping is great, the place is clean, but most of the enclosures are RIDICULOUSLY SMALL. Several of the large cats had cages no more than 2 or 3 body lengths across, with barren concrete floors and steel mesh walls. The same with many of the bird enclosures. Ironically, the turtles had more room than the lions!! The zoo grounds are very large--there is plenty of available land and space around most cages. They could easily be made larger and more species-friendly.
Do not support this zoo by visiting, or at least tell them about these problems as you're leaving. (We visited in April 2007.)
