  • visit this zoo was a pleasant surprise, this located in the slope of the Hill so the vegetation is abundant, has a Museum, Aviary and herpetarium. I recommend visiting it, must be prepared to walk and climb slopes.

  • I feel that animals are somewhat neglected and the areas where are are small and little cared. It has an interesting snake. In General, the Zoo is very large.

  • One of the best zoos of the Republic it, but is that the best, since it has a fauna only in the region and the space that it occupies very comforting as to spend a whole day in its facilities
