  • The forest Zoo Fabio Barreto's tour not to be missed, especially if you have children together. A beautiful park with animals, has free entry. All very well maintained and quiet. Worth knowing!

  • A place of exuberant vegetation, old, and preserved. But note that the local Government does not give due importance. It looks more like one of those places kept solely for the determination of a few. A shame!

  • Nice place, many animals, birds and greenery. No entry fee. On the entrance do eat churros , they are very tasty best in the city.
  • Nice place overall. Not so good about parking your car though. There's no parking lot, so you have to park in the street, probably a little bit far from the entrance. Food is very simple. It's good to have some snacks and water, soda... I saw some complaints about maintenance, but there's not so much to improve. Looking for a stunning zoo? Get a African safari. Also, there's an entrance for a Japanese Garden (inside the zoo) with small lakes full of turtles and carps and a view-point to the city. A must-see!
  • Great zoo. The animals don't feel like they are caged. The Japanese garden is a must see. Perfect Panorama view of Ribeirão.
  • A little bit run down looking, not well maintained. Free entrance.
