    I've gone to the National Zoo on several occasions to take my child. I think that the general care of animals is good considering the economic conditions in Cuba. Colleagues who serve them are connoisseurs and educate the population and children in affection towards animals. The fundamental problem that I see in this facility is related to services to visitors. The transport to get to different places within the Zoo and to arrive at the same Zoo from the outside has a lot to improve. Some roads where access to the installation are not in good condition. The cafes of the zoo have a slow, if you want to compare I suggest visiting the Park from la maestranza in old Havana. There should be a greater number of public baths. They should be prioritized (in quantity, variety and price) soft drinks, because the typical warmth of cuba, above the food and sweets. It is not provided to the visitor a plane or outline of the place that allows you to locate (a very large place) to make your visit more efficient and expend less energy to meet their expectations. Missing library where wildlife and nature-related texts are sold. Many things are that can and should be made to please the visitor and not let mother nature all responsibility in this regard.

    Inadvertantly turned out at the Zoo entrance 5 Cooke. (waited for their bus in Varadero, we had somewhere to hold 2:00). What is desolation. There are almost no visitors. The animals watching horrible garbage heap in enclosures, plastic bottles and wrappers. In the Aviary with bird hinnymi inhabits a flock of cats and biting their meal. All restaurants are closed. Attractions are abandoned.

    Since the path to the zoo trash clothes the streets by more than 100 meters the zoo who in the 80s was all splendor now gives its journey in ancient and battered buses who seek through the summer sun scarce and rachitic animals while the Guide boasts extensive knowledge about reproductive services see how animal without taking into account that most of the audience are children. Child zoo is acceptable although he must cope with enough bad smell still there are species to do. The part of them cafes although stocked with frozen hamburger cookies chocolates etc has the problem of long waits of more than half hour to meet a row of 12 people. I wonder how it is possible that 3 dependents not to assume in moments something as simple. It better is that there are many private that rent from carts for children until minibus invented to entertain is. In summary if you visit Cuba best thing can do is not go to this place unless you want to have a bad time.

    An excellent place to go ride in family. You can find a great variety of animal species and enjoy a unique experience.
