  • Take kids to the zoo and remember the time your child is still worth when we have a Sunday afternoon available.

  • It's a place that offers you several possibilities of Botanical knowledge. However at some points seems to be abandoned, I don't know if it's the season to desfavoreceu the environment or if it's always like that. But it is interesting to visit it

  • It's a great attraction for children and adults in BH. In addition to the Zoo (with good space and care), there is still a good botanical garden. The food on site is limited. There are points for hydration and rest.
