This zoo houses many rescue animals that were interesting. The grounds were very pleasant to walk around. Thoroughly recommend this zoo.

My driver from Quito to Tena told me about the zoo and was kind enough to accompany me there for an hour. The entrance was only $3 or $4. There weren't many visitors but I was glad to see so many local animals since I didn't do a Amazon trip and didn't see any animals in the wild. There was a great variety of animals and they seemed well taken care of, I hope the zoo gets enough funding and visitors to keep the animals well. My driver mentioned most of these animals are rescued.

A great walk through a jungle environment where wild monkeys interact with the animals on display. Many varieties of local wildlife on display. A fun experience.

We were pleasantly surprised by this little zoo. It was pretty with a lot of trees and nice paths. Some different animals and birds as well. There were a few monkeys loose as well.

A very worthwhile and quick detour off the main road. El Arca features a plethora of local flora and fauna. Short on interpretation but good close-up visit with the critters.
