    The idea of the place very well. But need you much maintenance. Additional must adapt roads so people coming up through the place and do not have any accident that when it rains the ground becomes a lodasero and is soapy. Also the bathrooms have to give them constant maintenance. The room of the frogs and toads is very nice. Good serious also having staff along the way if anyone has any questions

    Simply become a disaster. They are quick to ask you for $5 per person entry. In return they give you absolutely nothing. We had to make the journey by walking in the mud, non hai no way prepared to avoid it. The animals are in condition pessima. It would be to draw entity proposal. The baths? We avoid comment.

    This place should be shut down. No water. Animals are not well. Cages so small the animals can hardly move around. Facilities are disgraceful. Not much love around this place. Do not waste your money ...  more »

    A small and beautiful zoo, where the grounds are so lovely I almost felt I was in. Japanese garden a couple times. I loved the amphibian house and the tiny colorful Panamanian frogs.

    Rained pretty hard during our visit, but we still had a good time. Lots of interesting birds and animals to see.

    This zoo is a wonderful place to stop for the afternoon with the family. There are places to have lunch, and indeed there are vendors in the park hawking delicious local foods at a prices that can not be beat. This Zoo has many animals, but of special note for the visitor: the Tapir, which is not commonly seen outside of Central America.

    Most of the animals were in nice cages, the view is incredible and there is an investigation center where they research about the fungus that is bringing frogs close to extinction. The animals seem to be in good conditions, but there were a few that were in way too small cages. Still a good experience overall.
