  • To reach the site of public transportation is very easy, there's a bus that leaves you in the gate of the zoo, for private transport is kind of complicated to reach the site, taking this factor the zoo itself is great, has several exotic animals and serves as shelter for abandoned animals. There are places to eat a snack and/or lunch, the tour is fast, but very nice.

  • Children always love to walk in the Zoo, but tired too, so it's good to take a stand. Has an internal Museum very interesting. Worth it!

  • I don't know why other people complained about the zoo because they have clear signs , people that helped me Park , a place to eat, a clean bathroom and lots of animals that were well-kept. Just didn't have an elephant. You can walk the zoo in 2 hours. Best to arrive at 10 when they open. Plan to eat when you arrive or leave. Don't forget sunscreen or water. No need for insect repellent.
  • Really nice park and well taken care of. The signs with the map of the park really need changing though. What's amazing is that it's free! Uber users might have difficulty getting a ride because of bad phone signal and few drivers nearby, but you can make due catching the municipal bus to the Boqueirão Bus station.

Where to stay in Curitiba

Wherever you choose to stay in the city, you'll be able to get from place to place on your Curitiba itinerary in a breeze, thanks to the rapid bus transit system. Most higher-end hotels sit in or very close to the city center, especially along the pedestrianized main street of Rua XV de Novembro. Stay here if you want quick access to the best shopping strip in town. You can look slightly out of the center, in the neighborhoods of Batel and Seminário, to mingle with the city's posh crowd. Curitiba's continuing growth in popularity with younger tourists means you can now find any number of budget youth hostels, mainly concentrated in the center and inner suburbs.
