Jammer want paar keer heengegaan, hadden ook een mooie tuin. Maar er was te weinig geld voor onderhoud en verzorging.

But there was too little money for maintenance and care. The animals there were terrible at toe.de entrance is already closed the animals are now reinstated. An action in the national press went unheeded. Was the only zoo in Nicaragua to my knowledge where many schools let children meet with piece of nature. What is now no longer can. Sad.View original
Let's not get crazy. This is a poor country so I was skeptical and wanted to look out for maltreatment. What a surprise. Privately funded, so, it was nicely maintained. Different price for strangers o... more »

We had the happiness and privilege to know and speak at length with Denise Ann Lyons which has berthed us while we take a refreshment at the eatery located right at the entrance of the Zoo. We then learned that Denise and her husband are Americans and are partly much responsible of this Zoological Park and work there so fierce in recent years after having lived in Costa Rica for 5 years. A combination of circumstances led them here, towards the destiny that he had not planned. They had a farm with animals to the United States of course but here, they have had to learn to live with wild animals mistreated and wounded they receive in donations and by people finding these animals often to the threshold of death. Denise made every effort with her husband to save more than possible. Denise said we have 200 animals in back yard and that many of them will not survive. It works especially great with the small baby monkeys. She goes to evening studies and reads a lot on monkeys when they attempt to tame its better knowing more in depth. She lived painful experiences sometimes as being attacked by a mother monkey with whom it is was yet linked a deep friendship in mutual respect for a good end of time. Lack of knowledge of the behaviour of mothers monkeys who want to protect their pups and also a matter of jealousy for other male monkeys whose Denise gave them attention would be at the origin of this attack on the mother. Denise have shot but with injuries and has learned a lot from this experience of there his studies to know them better. Visit this zoo with an open mind knowing the mission of this site and not living no wait comparing it to other Zoological Park of the world that it was for us an exciting and also very moving moment. Nothing luxurious here with rust that is more pervasive than the nine. You can see several species of animals in the Nicaraguan jungle and crocodiles, jaguars, parrots, lions and other animals less ferocious as deer and various birds. The cost of entry was of 100 cordobas per person is about $5.00 Canadian and he was 30 córdobas for residents. A small modest restaurant is on-site if you want to eat you. There is also a public toilet. Denise Ann and her husband are not here for a matter of wages and money but on a voluntary basis as of the missionaries of the animal fauna of the Nicaragua. We are in contact with Denise Ann, who gave us his personal e-mail. We seriously to possibly give some time for this zoo one day. Denise will welcome you with open arms if this cause dear to your heart and if you wish to participate to save animals and maintain this fabulous site with the limited means of the edge. Visit the website to contact Denise through the contact information that you will find on the latter. Alternatively, you can write me in private messaging and I could put you in communication with this charming and devoted couple. We took several pictures with a series with Denise Ann and his last two baby monkeys with a Capuchin in the company of my wife. Courtesy of Denise and my wife got to publish them here on Tripadvisor. Can reach the bus which makes the journey between Masaya Managua and mention to the guy from the bus you want to disembark at the Zoológico nacional, which is on the edge of the road. You need to walk 5 minutes about to get to the entrance. At the highest level, we recommend a visit to this zoo for saving vocation. _ Notice written February 21, 2016 at the Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua.View original
This is an awesome zoo. It's probably one of my favorite zoos that I've ever been to. It's a little small, but it has a lot of heart, and most animal areas give the animals a lot of room. It's a little confusing to navigate, but after exploring around, I think that I found most of the nooks and crannies of this awesome zoo. Don't get too close to the exhibits, because there are lots of places where wild animals can grab you if you're not careful.
Only real zoo in Nic as far as I know. Good number of animals that will amuse kids. Limited dining options and street parking only
Cute little place, is not that big, perfect to hang a couple hours with your kids. Parking is limited but free. Entrance fee is about 3 dollars.
Very nice place to relax and explore some of Nicaragua's unique species of animals.
Angie Vanessa Castillo BorgeWell I like that there are animals and I can't go to distractView original
