    Well worth a visit. I was thrilled that he have animals of Martinique as the mongoose and the manicou unfortunately I could not see them because they were hiding. I wasn't expecting to either to see animals rather unusual such as the capybara, the Red coati and the kinkajou. However I noticed that some enclosures were too small for animals namely that saimiriine monkeys, caimans or worse still that Rosemary Emperor monkeys that I couldn't even see. Secondly, there should be more space to shade in some pens so that the visitors can admire the animals even when that he get out of the Sun. Apart from these small details, I'm happy with my first visit to the zoo.

    Great little zoo and they do a discount if you buy tickets to Jardin Balata/ Garden Balata at the same time. Since Balata is a have to visit thing its a nice combo.

    The only zoo on this island is located in the north west of Fort De France. It's easy to get there by car or bus. The staff is friendly and speaks english. The price is a bit high for such a small zoo, but it's worth it. You can also buy small bags of food for the racoons to feed them. The Zoo is build like a long streched circle with many spots to discover the history of an old fabric inside. The animals have enough space to life and did not look ill or anything else. At the end you can play with little birds (parrots) and eat at a small bistro.

    A visit that will delight the young and old ;) Between the ruins of inhabitation Latouche, the zoo is very well laid out and maintained. It is very nice to be able to move and to arise without suffering from the "bite" of the Sun. Pay close attention to observe the animals as they are more active when it is not too hot or too sunny :). At the end of a visit to the zoo you have also a Museum of the Pirates of Caribbean ;) you can dine in the Lantern for an affordable price. )
