  • Perhaps this may help to put a grain of sand to a dream. The location of Barranquilla, is privileged to be between two poles of tourism such as Santa Marta and Cartagena. The idea of building a great zoo to make it a magnet to attract those tourists, would be more than a dream, a chance to throw the city as a milestone in this field and laboratory studies on the fauna of the tropics around the world... For a long time I have thought, that if it is designed and proposed, could be built a large Zoo in the island which is on the Eastern Bank of the Magdalena river, almost opposite what is developed on the banks of the River, between the new headquarters of the Mayor's office and the new center of conventions, Golden Gate , on the road 40. I think those are also land in the nation, so it would facilitate the development of the project. Designing a great Zoo having the guarantees and the cooperation of the large zoos in the world, as the Germans or any other country that take this kind of project with great seriousness. To serve not only fun visitors, but also, for the study and conservation of all the wildlife in the area, of Colombia and of the tropics. On this island, I do not know how many acres are there, but surely, if sufficient to have animals in semi liberty, well treated and well fed. That this can also serve local universities to initiate and promote studies on these sciences faculties, so that many young people have another new opportunity to develop and attract the attention of the world on them. Imagine Island, or the Zoo, connected by land, from the bridge Pumarejo, by water, with well equipped tourist boats, or how what I have dreamed, by means of a cable car, a it with the shore or pier of the Golden Gate Convention Center. It would be a new attraction for the city of Barranquilla, but what is also very important, is attracting or capture, the large number of tourists that when planning your vacation to the coast, always plan to visit the great Zoo, in a short break from their days at the beach. The coffee has been a success. This Zoological attraction with security would be too... I recommend you contact the administrations of zoos of Cologne or Berlin, in Germany, or the excellent organizations of the States of the South of the United States.

  • The first impression to locate it on the map of Barranquilla is that it is small, you confirm to have internal travel map but when you start to visit each room, each display printing changes; It is really very well distributed, and am surprised that there are so many copies in a short space. The cost of entry is really cheap and worth it; making the route carefully and attention enough in each place you can take around 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours; with a bit of luck you could match the time in that feed some of the animals, it is very interesting. No doubt the big cats and the elephant are amazing, but generally it is all very entertaining, a plan that is ideal for family with children.
