  • You get to see anteaters, spectacled bear, ocarro, tapir, leopard, puma, snakes, birds and monkeys. Not too impressed with some of the living conditions or the cages but it's a nice park / zoo.  more »

  • Parque biotematico orinoquia
  • We weren't allowed to take bottled water inside the park and not given a rational reason why. The guides had no knowledge of the animals outside the script they had memorised and gave us disinformation about some of the animals. The animals they had were nice. Bring a phone and use google if you want accurate information.
  • Nice place to be
  • A nice place for take a walk
