Make some furry friends at Zoológico de Quito, home to over 130 species of animals native to Ecuador. The zoo prides itself on being a safe haven for animals rescued from harmful living conditions. The maintenance and care for the animals on display, the camps and interactive exhibits, and the relocating of rescued animals into sanctuaries across the country are all part of the zoo's conservation efforts. On a self-guided tour of the zoo you'll see lions, monkeys, bears, and turtles. There is a small cafeteria halfway through selling snacks.

    The infrastructure of the place is good, I am not a lover of the places that keep animals in captivity since it sees that they are stressed but visit it by my niece who is still small and I had wanted to go. I really do not recommend visiting this place is depressing to see the reduced space in which are found. It would be a nice Park, but I am not pleased as Zoo. Definitely a place to visit at one time.

    I returned to the Guayllabamba Zoo last weekend, and I've been pleasantly surprised to observe a good change, looks better organization, animals have increased, there are new routes with an environment suitable for plants and trees and birds of prey presentation was spectacular. A shame was not to see the condors, however, I left satisfied.

    From a recreational point of view, this place is amazing for children, is very broad, gardens and wide variety of animals. Animal care is pretty good, they have caregivers who are very outstanding of these and seen circular continuously by the Zoo. A point against although it leaves their hands, is on holiday sometimes is to burst, there is no where set foot and you can not enjoy experience as it should be.
