  • It is a place very nice and exciting, with a variety of animals to see. On this site the time passes without realizing, appreciating the beauty of the animal Kingdom.

  • I'm from Barranquilla and for a long time I thought that only in the capital of the Atlantic had a Zoo, until during a holiday in Medellin, Antioquia, in the tourist guide observed that the city of the eternal spring has a splendid place called Park Zoological Santa faith. They are a wonderful facility where you can appreciate the nature and the Majesty of the animals that are found in these facilities. You can't miss the opportunity to perform and an excellent experience in the Park Zoological Santa faith for visitors and vacationers arriving in Medellin.

  • The zoo is located in a place of easy access. From the metro station walking 10 mins Everything is well demarcated, the guides are attentive and the animals are well taken care. Squirrels run free and Peacock shows off its feathers. An interesting option if you want to take a break from the routine.

  • Clean, organise and good guides. Only thing needs to improve is the restaurant and food. It is just okay!
  • A nice zoo, amazing to see wild macaws and iguanas roaming the zoo. Good variety and viewing areas. Some parts could be better maintained but overall well worth it.
  • Much better than I expected. Obviously you'll see caged animals, but they're well maintained by quite qualified staff. The space is outstanding, considering it's in the middle of an urban area.
  • Loved this zoo! It has so many animals (that actually come out or are visible when you're there), and beautiful plants/trees that provide a nice amount of shade during hot weather :)
  • Despite this being a very old zoo, I liked it. It does have the old zoo feeling. The animals are very close. It is a great experience to visit here.
