Zoo is run down. Animals are not kept in large enough cages or areas. Poor deer were in an area by the lake and since it was rainy season half of their area was flooded. Saw red macaw that had gotten out of its cage and had its talon caught on the top of a cage and couldn't get free. This zoo is a disgrace. I wish someone would tell me how I can get this zoo shut down. The restrooms have no toilet paper or soap. The soap dispenser hasn't had soap in so long that it's broken with cob webs on it.

The zoo was Q40 to enter way over the Q15, We got told. All the birds where in poor health, the jaguar and puma where right at the back of the enclosure and could only just make them out. Most enjoyable was watching ants carry their food across the paths.

The place is pretty and the employees are very friendly but The main atractions were missing. The Jaguar had died about a month ago of old age and it's not so easily getting another one but they are working on it. also the Macaws are gone but one, wich I did not find .
