    It is a beautiful place to visit, meet the animals and keep in mind that before there was very close to the airport and today have changed this place.

    This zoo was closed and currently some animals were taken to the new Park hunted. The new Park is located 10 kms from the old zoo on the road to El cerrito bone via Cartago.
