  • After a dismal National Zoo, we have the contrary, furesa is a wonderful place, wonderful, fantastic, some animals so beautiful, well-maintained, in the midst of an extensive vegetation, security, very beautiful place I went with my 8 year old daughter and a 2-year-old and could walk without problems, the food is fantastic the person preparing them knows his work tried hoe meat, chicken, and grilled chicken soup delicious three, not passing the $5 dish seems fair, without drinks, very beautiful place in El Salvador. The bad: the one at box office, was not good and hopefully as 15 minutes, was misinformed, street access from the main road to the place is Earth and dangerous lack of police presence outside, and should create access to the area difficult for elderly or in a wheelchair, they will lose in maravilllos landscapes , freshness and of course some of the animals including the jaguar, the White Lion etc, but of 10 Pts le daria 9 and return without thinking
