“Great for birds and iguana lovers :D”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Lots of colorful birds, iguanas running around and much more. I loved it. Not too big. I won't give a 5 star since about 1/3 of the facility was in renovations so missed out lots...
Would recommend it to animal lovers/families

“Up close experience with animals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I had a blast here! Make sure to buy the animal crackers ($2) when you come here. You are able to feed almost all the animals. The little monkeys literally took it from our hand. It was so fun. There are plenty of animals walking around & not in cages, as well. I have never seen a peacock take a cracker from someone before, except here. It was definitely cool. It's for all ages. And those who complain about upkeep, this is just a small privately owned zoo, with no government funding. Stop comparing it to your huge city zoos where you live...

“Fun for the whole family….”
4 of 5 bubbles 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!

“A Lovely Little Zoo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

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!

“Please support this great little zoo!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

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.
