Zoo of the city of Barranquilla, Barranquilla
(3.1/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is very small for animals that are in captivity. The guides notice is inexperienced. It runs in an hour and a half as much.

  • Good chance to see up close the beautiful wildlife, although it makes me sad to see them locked up. There is option to purchase souvenirs.
