  • I was accompanied by my daughter a few months ago, even though there are various animals you can see that some areas are completely neglected as the turtle ponds. It requires more maintenance and organization to keep the place better, especially when there are species that require more complex and special care. Of the rest, it is worth to go, excellent to spend a weekend with family

  • This zoo is a sad state of affairs. It's absolutely heartbreaking to see a jaguar confined to a tiny cage, an animal that normally has a territory of miles. The jaguar was pacing back and forth erratically which is not normal behavior. Other animals like the lion and anteater looked distressed as well. I did not see much evidence that this zoo prioritizes animal welfare. Please do not support this zoo. One redeeming factor of this zoo: I had the BEST cup of coffee in all of Colombia in the little coffee hut that's near the hippo and lion enclosure. A surprising find!
  • This is not a zoo. This place is used to rehabilitate animals and return them to the wild. They don't have the same animals all the time; animals come in and out.
  • Beautiful zoo, recommended for visitors in Medellín. It's very organized, with many kinds of animals. There are a zone for creating consciousness about the extinction of animals which it's very impressive and creative. The entrance spend 7000 COP for children and 14000 COP for others.
  • I think this little zoo is underrated, it is small but it has several species that no other zoo in Colombia has, plus it is not small, it's just the right size so you can visit it all without ending up wasted!
  • Clean, organise and good guides. Only thing needs to improve is the restaurant and food. It is just okay!
