We are locals and just adore this zoo. Yes, it's small but the zoo takes good care of their animals and it is reflected in their enrichment programs for the animals. There are lots of animal events and even now some encounter experiences where you can pay a little more to get a "backstage look" at certain species.
Employees and volunteers are informed, intelligent, and helpful! The two shows are decent enough and worth watching once.
Be sure to bring your camera to the Tropics of the Americas - super cool scenery!
If you've got little ones, bring a swimsuit for the dancing fountains.
Attending Zoo Nights in the summer is VERY fun. It's cool to see the zoo in the evening, it's less crowded, and the weather is better.
Eat lunch in the cafe - they have decent prices and above average park food!
