  • The Zoo is located in the town's Park. The territory is big, but good is not served. Animals very much. Really a lot. Admission is 35 cents. Once you can go. Birds and animals should not be fed.

  • Animals are not many and not accompanied by any description about their habits and their distribution range. The cost is especially convenient and conducive to a visit in any case doesn't disappoint modest expectations.
