Worst “zoo” I have ever visited. The quality of living for every single animal is so pitiful ! Cages are way too small and most of them don’t have any protection for rain or sun. We saw the 2 tapirs standing in nothing but mud....More

Firstly... This little gem is up in the cool mountains of El Valle. The town itself is super cute, with shopping, tours, etc. If I had the money I would buy a 2nd home there, and I would have the best of both worlds... In...More

Its a little, interesting zoo where you can go see the Golden Frog that is famous in the area. This zoo clearly does not have the infrastructure of zoo's in well developed countries so some of the enclosures look worn. This is to be expected,...More

It was an enjoyable afternoon walking around the zoo looking at the animals. The enclosures are not like top zoos, but this is a small zoo that appeared clean and the animals did not appear distressed.

Kids enjoyed being able to get up close to many amazing animals and we enjoyed the laid back feel of casually walking around the park/zoo. Especially enjoyed the frog exhibit, pot belly pigs, monkeys, raccoons, and jaguars. We thought for the price of 4 adults...More

Have been here several times. Lots to see. Cages and pens sometimes too small or old. Grounds are beautiful but do not go if you have accessibility issues.
