The zoo in La Paz is at 30 minutes away from the downtown. It's no so big but there is an bbq area ideal for spending time with the family and/or friends.

A nice one-day, or half day excursion from La Paz also with children's. You can find games for children's in the zoo. The whole area is arranged to receive visitors also for lunch especially weekend and public holidays
