The Buenos Aires zoo ("Zoológico de Buenos Aires") is an inner city zoo that was founded in the late 19th century. That explains as well rather small cages and an overall slightly outdated concept. You can see that the staff has been trying to modernize the zoo (shifting focus to conversation and animal protection). However, some of the animals (especially the parrots) seem to be living in an reduced environment that (I suppose) a modern zoo would do differently. Still it is a nice place to visit, especially for small children. Food is sold throughout the zoo and children of course enjoy feeding the different animals. Not a must-see for tourists, unless your kids are looking for some "kid"-time. Admission is 10 USD per adult.
