  • What a great place to bring young children to see wildlife in well designed settings. Animals seem to be well cared for. Kids enjoyed the marine show with two penguins and two sea lions...

  • Not what i was expecting, was dirty, run down displays, workers not friendly and spraying and waisting water on the dead grass in the middle of a very hot afternoon? And a voice over the speakers...

  • The Buin Zoo is a fantastic bargain on the outskirts of the Santiago metro area. Admission was only 7000 CLP (about $10.50 USD)....compare to the San Diego Zoo at $50 USD per person...... Granted...

  • Pretty good setup. Animals appear well taken care off. Perfect for kids and families.
  • Excellent zoo in Santiago, the place was very clean and beautiful, it's not the largest zoo I have been but I really enjoyed my tour despite its size it has a great variety of animals but I am concerned about the little space that the animals have. I really enjoyed the marine show at the zoo, it was very informative and entertaining. I loved it !!
  • Beatiful place with great access. Mostly wheelchair friendly but can turn quite difficult in some parts. The animals are well taken care of and looked happy and the staff is very nice and helpfull. Its has its own parking lot.
  • Byin Zoo is one of the best parks that you can visit! Staff super friendly! And the scenery and animals are awesome, amazingly well done. The animal's habitats are carefully maintained. The park it is clean and you will have multiple spots for beverage and get something to eat. Just save your time and money and avoid visiting Hakuna Matata restaurant, it is a waste of money, only good thing there is the air conditioning 😉 the park management must work to improve that restaurant, before was really good.
  • The best zoo in Chile. It can get crowded but the place is well managed and the animals seem well treated.
