    We visited with small child. The site is very well taken care of, all very clean. The animals are beautiful. The structure is good. It's a long way to go and there's no signage, we got lost on the way. But worth knowing.

    Free entry, various animals, large place with many trees. Well worth getting to know. There's no snack bars inside, so bring a snack if you're going to be spending a lot of time, or choose to go after breakfast or lunch. Use GPS Since it is hidden and has no signaling boards.

    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.
