  • in my opinion the animals is better seeing them in their habitats because here you can do the zoo is a bit poorly maintained, not recommended

  • Attraction not to be missed. Very tidy and with animals in the Andean region. Very different and interesting. Worth the visit.

Where to stay in Santa Cruz

Accommodations in Santa Cruz lie within the limits of the Cuarto Anillo, while the areas outside of the ring road remain largely residential. The north of Barrio Equipetrol houses the city's glitziest and most luxurious hotels, offering extensive lists of amenities, including popular fine-dining restaurants, swimming pools, and spas. Head closer to the center of town for more budget-friendly options, including no-frills hotels, pleasant guesthouses set in formerly residential buildings, and backpacker-friendly hostels.
