  • The Zoo is very complete, you can explore it on a train, where once everything quickly, then go calmly walk to the attractions that you called more attention. The only downside is the area where it is located, is an area of poverty, in which there is trash and it seems to me that they do not offer food on site.

  • The Zoo of arrives by what you will see lot of garbage in the streets before reaching overview that who is not used to seeing the poor area of a city may not feel like crossing the Cristo Rey neighborhood. However the parks is spacious and secure. Entry is very cheap and if possible do not say that you are a foreigner sees with a local friend to make you buy them. There is a train that without much row about 20 meters stroll by the park with details including who gives a guide to the flora and fauna of the place. At the end they leave you at the top of a hill where is the highly recommended child zoo for a few bucks more. There are also pony rides and you can see snakes and frogs. The return can be walk admiring the well-kept place. There are cafes to drink water or eat. Finally a nice walk we recommend to do in the morning to avoid the sweltering heat of the Dominican evenings. Your children will enjoy it security and it is in addition extremely economic. We recommend it.

  • The perzuq is exceptionally large. There are no animals almost alone but in groups. Large areas. An internal "train" ride shows broad strokes as more important. Leave passengers at the opposite end from where it becomes walking. There are parks for children, shows for children and even pony rides. Very clean and organized.
