I went there only because my guide took me there, many of the animal have small cages, to be honest was kinda depressing to see those animals in bad conditions of course it is a Zoo and they should be on their on habitat. I prefer go to Animal Rescue Refugees and I found those in Iquitos-Peru.

I was the last month with my family. Perhaps the zoo is small, it has a good quantity of animals. My daughter was happy and she enjoy the farm, and the lions.

Really nice place to spend time and know more about nature and everything, try to visit early becouse the temperature in Barranquilla is quite high and you will not enjoy the visit as you must

You can tell they need to better take care of their animals, they look malnutritioned and depressed, very small cages and the background music gets on your nerves, can imagine why the animals look so bad if they need to listen to that music all day long...

The whole place is entertaining enough for young children, the animals looked a bit sad if anything, specially the elephant but overall it's a quick visit that the young ones will like.
