“Fun for the whole family….”
Review of St. Maarten Zoo

St. Maarten Zoo
Ranked #17 of 56 things to do in Philipsburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 24, 2014

This small stop in St Maarten can definitely fit into your visit. A short 3-5 min taxi ride from the cruise port and you can easily see the entire park in about 45 min. Definitely needs a little work, but very charming. Lots of beautiful animals to see, monkeys, parrots, lizards, turtles, peacocks. Make sure to wear bug repellent, as the mosquitos are very prevalent here. The staff is very friendly. Please help support this precious place! If your family loves animals, you won't be disappointed!

No, no lions or elephants, but plenty of beautiful birds, iguanas, monkeys and other animals that actually live on St Maarten. They've done a good job putting it together and they need support to keep it up! Go! You won't be sorry!

This is a great little zoo! Very inexpensive $10 per person + $1 for animal "food" (animal crackers). We enjoyed feeding the parrots, monkeys, peacocks, goats, chickens, other various birds, etc. This zoo is kept very clean, & the keepers are trying so hard to maintain this place with little (actually no) government funding. We enjoyed seeing the lizards, & we saw a non-captive hummingbird while there.

Hard place to find but cool to check out. Don't make the mistake of not purchasing food for the animals when you first get there. Wether you want to or not you will be followed by some sort of animals. Coolest part.

It is small, they are working on a facelift---clean out overgrowth. would still highly recommend and get the crackers for $2. Feeding the birds and monkeys was cool. Can walk through an exhibit with flamingos and other birds. Ocelot was eating an iguana that foolishly walked into his display. Opens at 9 so we went for an hour before going to the beach. Loved it!
