Zoológico de Quito, Quito

(3.1/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Quito attractions like Zoológico de Quito can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • A hot place, wear insect repellent, Sun cream. The animals are well dyed! The guides are very friendly! It is approximately a one hour travel have a farm apart from wild animals that you can feed with carrots and touch them. The only thing that would change are the Andean bears, we note that they die of heat and do not have a shadow place of refuge.

  • The friendliness of the employees can be noticed from the beginning, the well structured in terms of learning about each type of animal that lives in the zoo! It's rescued animals and one can observe the improvement of some of them over time and care managers in addition to learning about them, their rescue, release, etc. Not be which is our favorite space, but the owls love us! =)
