“Pleasently surprised....”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

It took over 15 years for me to go back to La Pastora Zoo. On my last visit I was kind of disappointed and sad to see the animals were not on a very good shape. I decided to give it another try due to the recommendation of a friend of mine who said the visit was totally worth it. So, we decided to take our children and we had a great time. We should totally help this zoo recover the good reputation it had several years ago.

“Sad..”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

Last time I went, I took a group of first graders, although they seemed to enjoy it, they were disappointed to find out some typical animals were not there. They have few animals, it is old, not the best conditions...

“Fantastic place for little ones.”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

I went there with my husband and three yrs old son, and all of us had a lovely time. It's big enough to spend a day, and not as commercial as places in United States- no visual stimuli, beckoning kids to buy, buy, buy, just the animals and lots of place for little ones to run around. I absolutely loved the place and would recommend it anyone with kids.

“Where are the animals?”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

We got there at 9am. Either most of the animals were still asleep, or the 10 pesos entrance fee (almost nothing) is not enough to have more animals in this theme park.

“a sad Zoo”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

sad sad Zoo, even though they take good care of the animals, the place seems completely sad, almost abandoned... visit it so they can get more income and renew it.
