Firstly... This little gem is up in the cool mountains of El Valle. The town itself is super cute, with shopping, tours, etc. If I had the money I would buy a 2nd home there, and I would have the best of both worlds... In...More

Its a little, interesting zoo where you can go see the Golden Frog that is famous in the area. This zoo clearly does not have the infrastructure of zoo's in well developed countries so some of the enclosures look worn. This is to be expected,...More

It's not Toronto zoo but what it makes up for it amenities it makes up in charm and variety of animals not typically seen back in Canada or other western zoos. And it's so affordable like only a couple of US dollars is all it...More

It was an enjoyable afternoon walking around the zoo looking at the animals. The enclosures are not like top zoos, but this is a small zoo that appeared clean and the animals did not appear distressed.

Kids enjoyed being able to get up close to many amazing animals and we enjoyed the laid back feel of casually walking around the park/zoo. Especially enjoyed the frog exhibit, pot belly pigs, monkeys, raccoons, and jaguars. We thought for the price of 4 adults...More

Have been here several times. Lots to see. Cages and pens sometimes too small or old. Grounds are beautiful but do not go if you have accessibility issues.

I don't want to support zoos because they happen to have too small cages, bad circumstances for the animals and many other problems very often. I thought this place is different from the description of the studying center and tale of nursering sick animals and...More
