  • Our visit was a shame. The Palermo Zoo closed in 2016, reopened and now turned Ecoparque. But it seems that the transformation was not very well communicated, because many people still don't know that even the locals. And more: to turn on, several animals were taken Ecoparque, others are quarantined, and of course no one tells that at the box office when you purchase your tickets (about $17 p/p, pretty expensive for what it is). The Miami Zoo cost the same price and is incomparably bigger and better (and neither is spectacular, not). We went with 4 children, 3 to 6 years, eager to see the advertised Lion, Panther, Cheetah (Cheeta), Rhinoceros, Zebras ... But we haven't seen anything like that. Also because the heat was about 35 degrees around noon--animals that were not collected "for maintenance", were hidden. We saw: Giraffe, elephant (by far), bear and Hippo, as well as smaller animals or more. Another bad point is the seat: we feel in the Sahara desert, as there are only 2 kiosks that sell water throughout the Park. And the snacks are very restricted, with few options. And eat badly in Buenos Aires is unacceptable, isn't it? The attendants, at least, have always been very helpful in giving information in there. In summary: not worth the price charged-though the kids enjoyed it, because it's always nice and instructive view animals. Maybe after the end of reforms. At the moment, no.

  • Unlike a lot of the animals are treated very well and has a different power, pleasant place and easy access for anyone, I love this zoo.

  • At the time, pay 490 pesos for two people. Had some hits closed but what gave to look at was really nice. Animals seemed well taken care of.
