    Several interesting animals, mostly reptiles, I love this place, it's great, well wooded, the animals are treated well, affordable entry price (and children/the elderly don't pay), one day I will be a biologist and my dream is to work on this beautiful place.

    Beautiful place, with many species of animal, but could be better signposted. Worth much the ride!

    The day we went to visit the Zoo had few large animals ... the only ones they had there was the elephant and the lion. Along the way you see that are loose and agouties monkeys who get brachiation. The input value is R $2.00 that despite the few animals found there should be a little bigger up to assist in the maintenance of the Zoo. We feel the lack of a guide in order to provide better explanations of the animals. But it is just the ride well wooded and enough shade.

    It should be a crime to keep animals like that... The Lion is miserable, very very skinny and malnourished.

Where to stay in Joao Pessoa

As you'd expect, most of the accommodations in Joao Pessoa crowd around the eastern coastline, jostling for the best position to catch a glimpse of the morning sun. Of these areas, the beach neighborhoods of Cabo Branco Tambaú and Manaíra offer by far the best range of places to stay. In pleasant contrast to many of Brazil's other coastal cities, a restriction on high-rise buildings along the shorefront has helped the city retain its laid-back, natural feel. Consequently, most hotels are housed in smaller, unobtrusive buildings. You won't find a huge range of budget accommodations in the city, but if visiting in low season (March to November), you can bargain for as much as 40 percent off the regular price.
