  • I thought the Zoo pretty cool and very well organized. There are several types of animals is the infrastructure is very good because it has bathrooms in several points of the Zoo with bathrooms and changing table and place to breast-feed.

  • Very nice Park, note the concern because animals are well. The only thing that I didn't like, chaos to enter the marine buin. It could be something that day... in any case el.show is very interesting for the children.

  • Visit this zoo in the month of June this year, I went along with my 5-year-old niece and my dad. The place itself is giant, the sectors of animals are divided according to zones, whether Asian or African. The entrance costs $8000 adult and the children of less than 90 cm. We were approximately all morning crossing, I recommend to take food and drink, since the Zoo is quite expensive. There is a restaurant in which is self service style, so it is not advisable to enter this if you go with very young children or cars. Menu prices range from $5500 to $8900. My niece was thrilled with the Zoo, is an excellent choice for a weekend family in less than 1 hour from Santiago.

  • A wonderful zoo, if not the best one, in the metropolitan region. It is very large, with multiple sections, lots of information and activities. The arthropods section is extremely good and has one of the largest collections of live tarantulas I've seen, with new and old world tarantulas. The live shows are also good, and not only entertain but also focus on conservation. Great place for a whole day.
  • Great Zoo, Safe Place, and it has easy parking for CLP$2000. But some animals aren't on the mood, it might be seen as they are unhappy; attention at local restaurants isn't the best and park decorations neither. The Sea animals show is by far the best except by its (large) boring monologue, People want action.
  • The best zoo in Chile! Wide variety in species. It took us nearly 6 hours to complete the tour. Amazing. Great ideas to interact with the animals. It's fun in its own way. Since there are plenty of animal the zoo has managed to arrange the tour in a way tha never felt like doing the same thing twice. Awesome!
  • Beautiful! The best zoo I've visited. Way better than the one we have in Salt Lake City
  • The best zoo of Santiago, Chile. Amazing!
