  • Has some interesting animals as a galapagos tortoise or a bear. Could have more room, but it's a small town.

  • isn't that the most beautiful zoo we visited (maintenance leaves to be desired, entered a little expensive)... ms if we have 1 hour to kill, reached by taxi ($ 2 Baños Center) and return on foot (it goes down in this sense)

  • The Zoo is located close on a bridge outside of Baños. Arrived 3 different inputs at all expect one admission is 2-$2.5 being the medium for $2.50 is the 'correct' Zoo... As always at the Zoo, one should turn off his empathy toward animals or completely avoid the visit. In contrast to the two other "Zoo's ' or other facilities in Ecuador, apparently according to circumstances well at least they have the animals here is slightly more space and not only concrete than in other facilities... It is an above average number of Ecuadorian families here (I was the only one European tourist and felt like in the Zoo ;-) Through the many stages of unsuitable for wheelchair, there are nice Aussischen along the Hill... Conclusion: just for kids cool, but there is a bar with beer
