Zoo of the city of Barranquilla, Barranquilla

(340+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium
Watch pink flamingos frolick at Zoo of the city of Barranquilla. Opened in 1956, the zoo houses several rare species, including one of the few remaining white tigers in the world. Walk through the small zoo's jungle paths to admire a range of native and exotic animals, kept in environments designed to replicate their natural habitats. While many of the animals live in reasonable conditions and are well attended to by zookeepers, several of the enclosures, such as those housing elephants and big cats, seem cramped and insufficient.

  • I disagree with the closure of the animals, however I went to meet, I found with sad animals, small spaces for animals that require you to do more exercise, as a tourist attraction is interesting, you can see several breeds of animals in one place.

  • It is a small urban Zoo with interesting species, spaces for animals are small, but the staff has many activities to learn more about them. The staff is very friendly and attentive.
