  • The Zoo of BH has already improved a lot! With the Aquarium got even cooler to take children. It's good to have some physical conditioning and tennis to hiking. When I was in the Atlantic forest kiln site was a little careless. But it is still a good place for a walk and clear my head.

  • The zoo of BH already had his place of prominence. Currently animals are poorly distributed in some cages even different species, how could I prove it. It's too much to get to certain places, and on rainy days, is impractical. The restaurant is not recommended, especially on weekends, due to the large number of visitors. I think for those who want to visit the ideal drive, because the buses are time consuming and are always full.

  • I thought differently, but I really liked the structure, the animals look very comfortable, and the walk is pretty cool!

  • The zoo is great for a family walk. There is lots of beautiful green space. My daughter (4 months - in a stroller) and husband went on a Saturday and it was relaxing. The aquarium is the worst I have ever seen and it requires to pay an extra fee of 6 reais per adult (very little, but I wouldn't even pay 1 real). The aminals were great when they were out and able to see.
  • Lugar bom para passear.
  • Amo o Zoológico.
  • Muito legal!
  • Good for kids
