  • Easy access, small and well taken care of, many of the animals that have been rescued from captivity is! I recommend not going in very hot days! Good to spend a morning, the kids have fun with toys, animals and birds that are close.

  • If anyone has some extra money (drives / flies) directly on the "middle" jungle to the animals in the wild. Otherwise, he is a normal and dismal Zoo. It is located west of Santa Cruz.
