This zoo does not compare with the best, modern zoos around, but it is a good, small zoo worth visiting for a few hours when in Medellin. It's small, but is laid out well so easy to see all the main exhibits. One good thing was that almost all the animals were up and about when I visited, which often... More

One of the park rangers told us they house exclusively rescued animals. There's pretty much to see, animals are not in bad conditions. Some are clearly bored, but hey, what can you really expect in a zoo. However, it's a great get away both for adults as children. Enjoyable natures, well laid out plan; follow the preset path and you... More

Los animales parecen sanos y feliz, y su entorno limpio y con un montón de artículos para mantenerlos activos mental y físico. En particular disfrutamos de la zarigüeya; estábamos allí cuando la alimentaron. Un día maravilloso que nunca olvidaré.

Lots of school kids learning about the animals. there are bears, snakes, birds, and all kinds of things. Small but entertaining enough for a few hours of education. Unfortunately the feline section was in maintenance.

I was warned that this zoo desperately needs modernisation, but I was interested to learn more about Colombia's fauna. Unfortunately the small museum was closed for renovation and I didn't really learn much. The cages were very small, and many animals were pacing up and down, never a good sign. One thing in the zoo's favour is that though the... More
