  • Interesting Park. Soon after, already has a square with wooden toys with seesaws, slides, etc. for the kids. It has a lake and a few bugs that I didn't expect to find in this region, as bears and penguins. All this still free.

  • A great place to spend the day with the kids, the site has undergone reforms in the years 80 and 90, and was getting more and more interesting. The Park was enlarged and by consequence the ride too, the quantity and variety of animals is very good, especially of birds where you can walk inside a large nursery and participate in the habitat of these birds. The Park also has picnic areas with benches and tables in wood beneath a lot of shadow, which makes the day very pleasant, has cafeteria, restrooms, and playground as well, for those who have children until 10 years I recommend Super.

  • I think it's bad care, signaling bad and extremely skinny cats! I was sorry. As number 1 attraction of San Carlos is shameful.

  • My kids adore this place. It could benefit from investment, as there are empty displays and incomplete signage, but the location is beautifully wooded, the animals are interesting and exotic, and the kid's park is great. Worth every visit if your family is into this sort of place.

Where to stay in Sao Carlos

A number of large hotels can be found near the Universidade de São Paulo’s campus number one, offering reasonably priced rooms just a stone’s throw away from the city's liveliest bars and inexpensive eateries. For easy access to the surrounding region, consider staying at a roadside hotel in the outskirts that offer more affordable nightly rates. Those planning a longer stay in the city may find a vacation rental to be the most economical and comfortable accommodation option.
