  • Not too much to see. Fun for kids who want to do quatrack or ride a horse.
  • Many animals and well cared for, clean facilities.
  • Much more natural zoo.
  • Nice place
  • A bit dated. Not a must if we're passing to La Paz, but essential if you live here. The zoo is very aging and there is finally little animals.
