“Cute little zoo.”
Review of St. Maarten Zoo

Certificate of Excellence

We found this cute little zoo on the opposite side of the Salt Pond from Philipsburg. It is worth an afternoon of fun with friends and kids especially if you like being up close to the animals and birds.

Grab a beer for you and treats for the animals and spend a great hour or so with beautiful birds, apes and lots more.

We visited the St. Maarten Zoo last week and loved it. A quick local bus ride from Phillipsburg and a short walk and you're there. Buy a few bags of the animal crackers and feed all the animals. The beautiful macaws and parrots will take the crackers gently out of your hands and there are lots of other animals to feed as well. Many large iguanas roaming the property too. The owner Steve was a great guy and showed us around and even allowed us to hold "Sunshine" the albino boa constrictor and "Oscar" his parrot. We'd go back again!

what alot of people don't realize is, that this zoo isn't government supported...it runs on skeleton donations and whatever people pay or buy there...So I do believe they are doing a great job with the means that they have, and everyone should pass there and support the animals! The playground is great for kids as well, though make sure to walk with musquito spray...gots lots of water and bush so musquitoes are abundant!

A 30 minute walk from Phillipsburg, easy to miss. $10 entry fee, and the place was pretty empty. Lots of birds, some monkeys, took about an hour to do. I had a great time with the peacocks and some monkeys threw apples at my husband, which was hilarious!
