So the place was nice, lots of threes and was awesome to sit under them. Lots of birds, but the amazonian area was closed, the aquarium is a bit poor of species. At the end is good to see reptiles and birds.

If you are a tourist you have to go to the Zoo. Even though its small, its very well organized and you will be amazed by the variety of animals in there.
