  • Too bad because few times passed away, also had a beautiful garden. 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.

  • 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 »

  • If you are an animal rights activist I would not recommend going. The conditions for the animals is not great, especially for the big cats... BUT.. If you want to see animals up close this zoo is great. It seems like most of the animals there are rescues so that also goes in their favor. Seeing the tropical birds up close is really neat. I would go again.
  • I sorta liked it, I have mixed feelings towards it. Doubtlessly, it is a beautiful location, but when it comes to animals maintenance, it has a lot of room for improvement. Hopefully, the government invests a lot more on family-oriented recreation.
  • Nice place to spend with the family
  • 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.
  • Great place, really clean.
